Mindapple-a-day: Calling friends on Zoom

Mindapples trainer Amanda shares Nigel’s mindapple, chatting to friends on zoom.

Feeling related to other people is an important psychological need, the self-determination theory explains that relatedness is an absolute basic need in order to feel good. So although Nigel’s zoom call is ‘just for a chat’, he’s providing an absolute basic psychological need for himself and the people he’s talking to. We all like to feel that we belong and are connected, and at times like these video calls are really helpful and good for our wellbeing.
