The Surprising Boost You Get From Strangers - WSJ By Elizabeth Bernstein, May 2019
Via WSJ 19/20 Jun 2019

"Sometimes a stranger—not a friend or a loved one—can significantly improve our day. A pleasant encounter with someone we don’t know, even a nonverbal one, can soothe us when no one else is around. It may get us out of our own head—a proven mood booster—and help broaden our perspective. "

Ten Ways to Connect With Strangers

Be brave.
Chat up someone you see regularly
Ask about the other person. Everyone loves to talk about themselves.
Bond during a challenging experience
Ask for help.
Focus on what you have in common.
Mutual disclosure helps.
Use humor.
Make sure the interaction is equal.
Do it again.
