In a recent coaching session a client shared a secret: “I realized that the reason I haven’t been very productive since my move is that I don’t have anyone I can really talk to,” she said. “I have work friends and attend networking events, but I don’t feel a deep connection to anyone.”
Loneliness is officially a public health crisis. According to a 2018 survey, 22% of adults in the US and 23% in the UK say they always or often feel lonely, lack companionship, feel left out or isolated. The number of single-occupant households is growing in Denmark, Germany and Canada. Britain was the first nation in history to appoint a minister for loneliness.
As technology continues to make it easier to do things without interacting with each other, why should we make the effort? Humans have survived because our brains are wired for connection. There are serious physical and emotional consequences to spending too much time in isolation.
