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.
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.
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.
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.
