Loneliness Can Be Dangerous For Your Health
The Journal of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences used data from 12,000 people over a period of ten years to discover how loneliness affects the brain. They found that people with a greater sense of loneliness were 40 percent more likely to develop dementia. Researchers found that people with great feelings of loneliness did more damaging activities to fill the void of being lonely, leading to brain damage. If you’re feeling lonely, you can find a hobby, go out with friends, or talk about your feelings with a loved one. Coping with loneliness can be difficult, but there are ways to help you feel better.
