Do not click the like button on apps.
The like button is a way that people communicate without much effort. However, it does not convey your true intentions. It minimizes conversation.
Remain silent on your social media.
Do not click the like button, and don’t leave short comments such as “you are cute” or “this is cool.” Doing this will slowly teach your mind that connection is a suitable substitute for conversation. If that person is really important to you, spend time to meet up and have a real conversation.
Set your phone to the “do not disturb” mode for better conversations.
In the “do not disturb” mode, you reduce the number of texts you send and the number of times you view your phone. Text messages should not be an alternative to conversations.
Have conversations after office hours.
Hold conversations after office hours. This way, you are completely free and able to invest in people fully. Schedule your conversations with plenty of time between so that you can show each person that you care about them and really take the time to get to know them. This method is ideal if you are busy every day and need time for your loved ones.
