#JustSayHello

Just Say Hello

# JustSayHello is a campaign that Oprah has started to help combat loneliness and to encourage more face-to-face interaction with people.

I have blogged in the past about how we spend too much of our time staring at our phones, not talking to one another… so when I happened to see this campaign I thought I would make it part of my blog.

If we all took a moment to ‘Just Say Hello’ to someone… your neighbor, the person sitting next to you on the bus, a stranger walking down the street, a friend you haven’t spoken to in years, you may just make that person’s day or perhaps make a new friend.

I have had 2 recent occasions where I looked up people I haven’t seen in a long time; a sales rep I used to do business with and a college friend. They were two wonderful visits that still make me smile.

    Saying hello is powerful. Just think of how you’d feel if absolutely nobody acknowledged your presence.

      I agree, Janee’. I think there are a lot of people out there that are lonely and just want to be acknowledged… a smile, a hello, a touch is all it takes.
