Multiple connections from one machine to a single database

I have been having an issue where I'll notice that I have multiple connections open to a single geodatabase.  Right now I am showing that I have 5 connections, one of which is greyed out for the current connection.  Each computer here has its own name associated with it, so I can tell that all of the connections I am seeing are from my machine.

 

What causes this?

Is it a problem? 
How do I fix it if so?

 

System Information:
ArcGIS for Desktop 10.3.1

Windows 7 Machine

Microsoft SQL Geodatabase

SDE Connection

 

 

Thanks!
