Episode 154: Alone or Lonely?
Show Notes

We’ve all been alone and I’m guessing we’ve all felt lonely at times… in fact, I’d venture to say that most of us have felt lonely at times when we are with other people and when we have been alone. In this episode, I’ll talk about the physical and mental health benefits of spending some time alone and, if you’re uncomfortable being alone, I’ll share some tips on how to make that a bit easier. I’ll also talk about loneliness and how loneliness can, at times, lead to physical and mental health issues. In addition, I’ll talk about ways to work your way out of loneliness if you find yourself there! Let’s get started!
