What Is Loneliness? Who Is Truly Alone? Loneliness Have A Bad Effect On Health by sojibm00(m): 6:50am On Aug 23, 2020
Our family and social relationships have changed during the Kovid-19 epidemic. Just when we have no alternative to the social distance to ensure our safety, we are lost in the social epidemic of loneliness.

What is loneliness?

Loneliness is an emotion that loneliness researcher John Casioppopo has called "social pain." You feel lonely when you are anxious because of the lack of connection with others.

What is loneliness? Who is truly alone? Does loneliness have a bad effect on health?

According to the Existential Psychologist, "People are alone. To overcome this loneliness of our own, we mingle with others, in family and social bonds. Gradually, different expectations are creating from that relationship, and when you don't get close to those people, you feel lonely, the inside feels empty. I don't think that's normal. "

Some common questions about loneliness

Who feels lonely?

Almost everyone felts the feeling of loneliness at one time or another. Loneliness is a signal that is healthy for our body and mind to fill any need, which we can meet in cooperation or connection with others.

Why has loneliness increased?

Rising rates of homelessness, late marriages and childbearing, education and moving away from family and friends for careers, divorce, reliance on technology and social media can all lead to loneliness.

The social distance we maintain to survive the Kovid-19 epidemic has also become a cause of loneliness for many.

Why is loneliness unhealthy?

Loneliness weakens your health in two ways:

First, according to biological nature, humans are social creatures. The social isolation associated with loneliness increases cortisol (stress hormone) levels in humans. Prolonged increase in cortisol levels can be detrimental to both physical and mental health. Which raises the risk of heart disease, can cause many more problems, including anxiety, depression and dementia.

Just as smoking 15 cigarettes a day increases your risk of death by 50%, so too can loneliness and significant damage to your health.

Second, having a loved one lowers our stress hormone levels. Socialization helps us to adapt to any environment and find reasons to be happy.

On the other hand, people can choose unhealthy ways to deal with social isolation (e.g., overeating, drinking, smoking) which are harmful to health.

10 Ways to Overcome Loneliness

Be aware and express your feelings: Write down your thoughts and feelings and try to discover the gaps in your social experience and your own mistakes.

Attitude Change Cron: Consider how our changed social structure is pushing us towards loneliness. Late marriages, divorces, changes in geographical location for work and education cause people to feel lonely many times in life. It is normal to contact lonely when we are separate from family or friends, primarily because of the current social distance. Take care of yourself and know that there is nothing wrong with you.

Develop your creativity during the Covid-19 epidemic: Be creative and learn new ways to work while maintaining distance. Stay in touch with family members, friends or colleagues on various online platforms such as Facebook, Skype, e-mail, messaging, and even writing letters like in the old days. It could be a small song, jokes, past memories or anything.
