Loneliness, isolation, a pile of virtual friends we hope will fill the void. Maggie Kelly discusses what she feels to be an epidemic of loneliness in our society. We need to be connected to be emotionally well. We need to have human interaction with one another to feel "ok." The loneliness and isolation we experience as a society these days also has mental and physical health repercussions - the equivalent of smoking 15 cigarettes each day.
Spiritual, Life and Meditation Coach Maggie Kelly recommends meditation and mindfulness as a means to reconnect first to yourself and second, to one another. Put the phone down, talk to the guy next to you, to the grocery store clerk, to the woman on the bus. Disconnect to reconnect.
