What do you think is the most healthy way to feel connected to the world?

What do you think is the most healthy way to re-establish connection to the world when you feel disconnected or alone?



Those last two questions might have the same answer, cause they're almost the same. But, basically, I am curious about the difference between ways to be connected, and ways to self-medicate/re-establish lost connection.

I don't know why I'm thinking about this stuff today.

Totally!! The most connected I've ever felt to the universe was when I was alone and hiking in the mountains!

I came back to planet city with renewed love for everything and everyone on the planet.
