Face-to-face social interaction leads to a longer life.
This was one of the most important takeaways from April’s international TED conference: that there is no replacement for being in the same room as someone you love.
We need to let ourselves free from our devices. We need to re-teach ourselves how to interact with each other. FaceTime isn’t enough. Whatsapp isn’t enough. Emails aren’t enough.
Spending time with the people you love is the only thing that will make you feel human again.
Being a human being: that’s enough.
