Loneliness is lethal

How would you respond if I told you loneliness is lethal?

John Cacioppo is a leader in the field of loneliness and connection.  This excellent Ted talk outlines the basis on which Campaign for Connection is based.

In this 18-minute video, he discusses the apparent non-common-sense of some scientific research, the impact loneliness has, the negative perceptions surrounding it, the paradox of how we increasingly live our lives and celebrate individualism, the 3 components of connection and how we can approach it when we notice the feeling.

The Campaign for Connection also adds in the connection to ourselves, which can help us notice the signs sooner, and have the inner resources to take action.

We’d love to know what you think about this video.
