Beat Loneliness While Practicing Social Distancing: A Happify Webinar
Feelings of loneliness and isolation were pretty common in the time before coronavirus—it affected one in four people. Now that our health and safety depends on everyone staying inside and avoiding contact with others, loneliness is becoming even more prevalent. But for all the good this isolation does for our collective physical health, it can take a toll on our mental health—particularly those who are single and live alone.
Fortunately, there are some science-backed strategies you can use to overcome feelings of isolation. In a webinar led by Cambridge University researcher Dr. Olivia Remes, she will show you 5 simple steps to forge stronger social connections, how to change your perspective and stop believing that loneliness is your fault, and ways to take advantage of the situation to focus on self-care and improvement.
