Now, he has partnered with Lipton to introduce 15 minutes of quality connection as a smart metric for fighting hidden loneliness. He argues spending time to connect with someone on a deeper level can have a great impact on our emotional and physical health.
Lipton has partnered with Dr.Guy Winch to conduct behavioral study in which he designed a series of interventions to enable genuine connections. The purpose of this research is to understand in-depth, the effect and impact that applying these interventions can have on people. The conversation enablers with more potential to enable quality connections were the following:
1. Share your feelings about something meaningful currently going on in your life
2. Share your hopes and thoughts about the future and ask about theirs
3. Reminisce, bring up memories about your mutual past
