What is the art of neighboring? It’s a question on many people’s minds lately as the world seems increasingly disconnected. In a time when we can order anything we want online with the click of a button, it looks like neighborliness is a thing of the past. But what if there was a way to change that? What if we could all learn how to become good neighbors again and create communities where we live that are supportive and connected?
If you’re looking to change that and create a stronger sense of community where you live, here are a few tips to get you started:
Please try to say hello and start conversations with your neighbors whenever you see them. Please get to know their names, their interests, and what they do for a living. Invite them over to spend time together and get to learn more about their story.
Attend or start your neighborhood events like driveway BBQs, Events in the park, movie night on the driveway, host a sports event party, or a neighborhood bike ride. This is a great way to meet new people and show your support for your community. You can also create a neighborhood Facebook group to create an online community.
Volunteer with local food banks or charities in your community. Not only will you be helping out a worthy cause, but you’ll also get to know the people who live around you while you’re doing it.
Start A Movement
Join or start a neighborhood watch group or volunteer on the local HOA Board. This is a great way to get to know your neighbors better and help keep your community safe.
By following these tips, you can create a thriving string community where you live. Not only will you feel more connected and supported, but you’ll also be helping to make your neighborhood a better place for everyone. So what are you waiting for?
