3 Benefits Of Knowing Your Neighbors

3 Benefits Of Knowing Your Neighbors

Get to know your neighbors this Holiday Season and cherish the memories & friendships you make along the way.  Here are a few benefits:

1. Safety.
 Neighborhoods where people know one another tend to be safer than those where people are strangers.  Friendly neighbors might feel more comfortable notifying authorities if they see suspicious activity.

     Consider:

  • Starting a neighborhood watch program.
  • Keeping an eye on your neighbor's house while they're out of town.
2. Sharing.  Tight-knit neighbors are more likely to share resources, whether it's a hammer or extra goodies from the garden.
     
     Consider:
  • Helping your elderly neighbors with yard work, snow removal or tasks around the house.
  • Taking dinner to a neighbor who is under the weather or who just had a baby.
3. Social support.  People with strong social ties are not only happier, they also tend to live longer.

     Consider: 
  • Organize a block party or potluck dinner to get to know your neighbors.
  • Smiling and waving at your neighbors when they pass by your house.
65% of Americans do favors for their neighbors.
43% of Americans speak to their neighbors at least a few times a week.
