The Loneliness Epidemic is so bad, world leaders have been forced to intervene.
When politicians are staging national interventions to force us to connect with each other — and actually spending real money on the problem — you know it’s a genuine crisis.
Until recently, loneliness has also been largely underappreciated. It’s an emotional state we’ve all dwelt in at some point of our lives, and it’s so familiar that it’s tempting to overlook it as mundane amid all the other mental health worries currently being given airtime, such as depression and anxiety. Nevertheless, the world is starting to wake up to how bad the loneliness epidemic has actually become.
We explore loneliness from the yoga perspective, why do we get lonely and how we can overcome loneliness.
This great wisdom has been passed down by self-realised yoga masters since time immemorial, however, even in this modern world, this knowledge is so relevant and practical, it can be easily applied in our lives.
