Proximity matters in far more ways that we realize.

The number of interactions we have with colleagues depends on how close our desks are.

The time we spend with friends and family depends on how close they live.

Our happiness with where we live depends on the amenities nearby.

How much time we spend commuting depends on how close we live to work.

How often we work out depends on how easy it is for us to work out.

Proximity matters.
