Developing a routine for casual conversations
If you are meeting people for the first time, try to maintain a non-confrontational way of talking to them.

Instead, try to spend as much time as possible just looking them in the eye and saying “hello” or “hi” without having to put any pressure on them to say anything in return.

Taking a social break from your normal routine is key to any form of health. It releases your muscles and opens up your mind to new experiences. It also encourages you to socialize with people from all walks of life. Be sure to head back to the office or home when you are done for the day, and use that downtime to socialize with your friends.
