Here’s how I created deeper relationships with my friends…

There has been a study running at Harvard for over 80 years and it is now one of the longest running studies in the world. It has spanned generations and they are trying to find one thing - the secret to leading a long and happy life. So far, all the data points towards connection - the people who have focused on creating good relationships and deep connections in their life are the happiest AND the healthiest - YES, this affects your physical health. Mel Robbins had the most amazing episode about this study on her podcast which you can listen to here. 

If you are someone who feels like there is just that little bit *missing* from the relationships around you then this is for you… 

You have the power to shift the relationships in your life to become exactly what you need. You will be shocked at how many of the people around you will be able to meet you where you are at - they may just need a little bit of prompting. So before you go cutting everyone out to find a whole new friend group… Here are some of my top tips for creating deeper connections with your friends. 

  • Set the scene. This is super important because you can’t exactly start having a deep conversation on your sunday morning run - book in a catch up dinner, picnic or walk so that you have enough time and space with each other without the pressure to get “something done” 
    1. Be Present: Give your full attention when you're with your friends. Put away distractions like your phone and engage fully in the conversation.
    2. Ask Thoughtful Questions: Go beyond surface-level topics. Ask questions that encourage your friends to share their deeper thoughts and feelings.
    3. Show Empathy: Try to understand their feelings and perspectives without judgement. Show that you care about their experiences and emotions

    Putting in the work to take my friendships to the next level and creating space to have these deeper conversations has been life changing. It allows me to leave every interaction feeling like my cup has been filled. 

    This is a big reason why we created our connection card game as it is the perfect ice breaker to start having these conversations with your loved ones - you can shop them here. 

    Here are a few questions to get you started for your next girls dinner… 

    • What has been the most significant event in your life so far, how has it shaped who you are today? 
    • What are your biggest dreams and aspirations? 
    • What fills up your cup? How do you prioritise this? 
    • If you could change one thing about your past, what would it be and why? 
    • Is there something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t yet? What is holding you back? 

    Love always,
