Do Talk to Strangers
We were told as children not to talk to strangers. We tell our children not to talk to strangers. But now new research says talking to strangers could be good for you. Of course, safety is important, but chatting with fellow travelers, shoppers or store clerks can give you (and the recipient) an emotional boost. It seems that when we small talk with strangers, we put on our happy face. And that can affect our mood, not to mention make the whole experience more enjoyable.
