Social interaction is something I now cherish and what I resonate with in movies such as Cast Away where the main character creates a friend he names Wilson out of a basketball in order to cope with years of loneliness. There is also the film I Am Legend where the last man in New York City copes with isolation by having conversations with mannequins he set up in a video store. These kind of movies remind us of how vital human connection really is.

The science fiction adventure film, Passengers, is about what happens when two people sleeping in suspended animation, while on a journey through space, are awakened 90 years too early. Starring Chris Pratt as Jim and Jennifer Lawrence as Aurora this is a visually stunning film with thought provoking themes of isolation and the choices made to cope with loneliness.

No matter what problems or challenges one faces it can be amplified by being isolated and separated from other people. Human interaction is absolutely key to maintaining one’s sanity, health & wellness. Social support can also help increase one’s positivity, drive, resilience and indestructible optimism. Let movies remind you that your best chance of riding the ups and downs of life is through the loving connection of good people around you!
