Lets Start A Conversation - 6 Reasons Why

Meeting new people can be so rewarding, and what better way to do it than through dogs? They provide us with a starting point for any conversation, and bring us into a wonderful community of people full of love for each other and their furry four-legged friends. 
1. You never know who you might meet
It's amazing when you talk to someone and that someone just happens to know a plumber that you've been trying to find for ages or the name of the shop that sells your favourite blend of coffee. They might even become your best friend!

2. Helping someone out is so rewarding 
By sheer chance I met someone who wanted their house professionally photographed for a magazine and I happened to know someone who worked for that magazine. I put the two together and it made me feel good! Tiny efforts for you can make a big impact on someone else's life. 

3. It's good for your health
Having an active social life is incredibly important, and so widening your social circle will only bring you benefits. It improves your overall wellbeing, both physically and mentally. As the Boston Globe says, 'A friend a day keeps the doctor away!' 

4. Improve your confidence 
How many people do you know that could comfortably sit in a room with a bunch of strangers and just start chatting away? Talking to new people, especially in such a friendly, welcoming setting like on a dog walk, can be extremely liberating. It will help you get over your fear of being judged and you can take this skill everywhere. 

5. You might just learn something
Everyone is an expert at something, right? Take a minute, listen, and hopefully learn something along the way. You have no idea what these people have done before, or how they might be able to help you in the future!

6. Gain a fresh perspective, and benefit from it
We gain more from talking to new people than we think. Fresh perspectives, different experiences, new opinions, new advice. You can expand your mind, gain knowledge and make a new friend all at the same time! 

Here's hoping you find someone that you'd definitely want to walk with again!
