The loneliest generation in America
Nearly half of respondents to a nationwide survey by health insurer Cigna say they always or sometimes feel alone, and 54% say they feel no one knows them well. Such loneliness is connected to increased risk of heart disease, stroke and premature death. The loneliest group? Young people, especially those born between the mid-1990s and early 2000s. They are less likely to have in-person social interactions, which the survey identified as a potential loneliness antidote.

"The loneliest generation in America" #LonelyAmerica How many people do you know? That go home after work and don't go back out. That would rather stay in and order Grubhub vs. going out. That want to work from home instead of the office. That would rather text than chat on the phone or meet in person. That would rather play on social media than hang out in person. That would rather play video games alone than go out somewhere. That would rather take an online class than one onsite. The list can go on..... There is a lot of criticism of the old world as times change, but just because it was the "old way" doesn't mean it was the wrong way. And the old way had us all wanting TO GET THE HELL OUT OF THE HOUSE and go do things. Go travel. Meet new people. Visit a museum or concert. Dine with friends and their friends so you can meet new people. Go work in the office, your chances of meeting life long friends at work is pretty high. Go the beach. Go to the park Go volunteer Just go LIVE and stop hiding out, letting time and your youth pass you by. #LonelyAmerica
It is so sad that people feel lonely when there are so many ways to be a part of community. The hardest part might be to make that first step to join something - whether it is a service club, a church, a sporting/recreational group, an art class, a not-for profit or charity group...... but once you do, the benefits will come to you.
Duh, if your life centers around typing to people what do you expect. Stop typing and start talking. When someone texts me I immediately call them. This typing stuff has got to go. Follow my advice and never feel lonely again.
It’s a global phenomenon now. People can relate better through social media than in person. Younger ones don’t even know how how to do small talk in gathering or functions. They don’t play outdoors and only stick to gadgets .Parents find it hard to teach this small things to children. Thus outcome is no social connect and a mentally weak generation !! Pity
"The most important contributor to joy and success in adult life is love ( or, in theoretical terms, attachment)." [Triumphs of Experience] I strongly believe that social media is a tool not a way of living. I agree that you can 'connect' through it, but disagree that you can truly, most of the time, develop a relationship that is meaningful. That leads to a lack of 'attachment' and a lonely life. My opinion doesn't address why or how one becomes lonely, nor does it find them entirely culpable, that would be a complex opinion/comment. Without the filters and lenses that comes between the post and the reader, we are very much all the same, we are very similar and predictive beings, with comparable limitations.
Advent of technology creates too much reliance on instantaneous information exchange without the social in-person interaction humanity needs for proper cognitive development leading to concentration issues, diminished processing capabilities, and sloth-like behavior. In layman terms, no one tries anymore to communicate and involving themselves in non-verbal communication. Peesonally, I like my solitude. There is too much of the wrong thing going on to wanna involve myself.(edited)
We, the older generation, have partly contributed to this and can play a part in reversing the unhealthy trend: Talk to a kid...spend time with them and encourage health social interactions among kids, from an early age
You forgot the case when that someone (Mr,Mrs YesWewill) has added one another (Mr,Mrs YesChitchat) and she/he considers one another for its worth, when actually one considers that someone as one of those who added him/her for the reasons you quoted or think that's why he/she's being "friended"and indeed neglects the relationship. When we are sur rounded by Mr/Mrs YesChitchat, indeed loneliness happens...
Artem Mashkov It takes tenacity, self distance/growth and time to apply that statement. And each individual is not equal toward building such connections. We have to keep that in mind no matter where we're from (manhattan, soweto, cité soleil... ) or even which generation we belong to: X, Y, Z ; The stones, Britney, Bieber; type writer, fax, web etc.
Another reason social media is the downfall of society as we knew it. See LinkedIn article below. I see this in my oldest daughter and it kills me. America is becoming Isolation Nation. Nearly half of respondents to a nationwide survey by health insurer Cigna say they always or sometimes feel alone, and 54% say they feel no one knows them well. Such loneliness is connected to increased risk of heart disease, stroke and premature death. The loneliest group? Young people, especially those born between the mid-1990s and early 2000s. They are less likely to have in-person social interactions, which the survey identified as a potential loneliness antidote. • Share your thoughts: #LonelyAmerica

People need people. People need people in person to talk to. People need people who will listen. People need the touch of other people and the interpersonal connections that come with a smile, eye contact, a handshake and a hug. Wellness programs that are focused on technological interventions may help people manage some of their behaviors but they move us further from real connection with people. Trained coaches, peer support and people trained to listen will be critical to well-being If we are to become a connected and caring America. #lonelyamericahttps://lnkd.in/gVqbMh7
Ever feel lonely while connecting with thousands of people on social media? If you do then you're doing something very wrong! According to a Cigna study Millennials are feeling extremely lonely in spite of all of these connections we are able to make on LinkedInFacebookInstagramTwitter So what's wrong? People are not making real connections. They are adding people for all the wrong reasons: 1) I want a high follower count 2) I want to make sales 3) I want validation THAT'S WHY YOU FEEL LONELY! Imagine making connections in real life for those reasons. Doesn't make any sense right? Well it doesn't work like that on here either. This is why I connect with people: 1) I want to actually get to know the person and interact with them. 2) I want to help them with their problems. (Seriously I love problem solving) 3) I want inspiration not validation! It’s only #LonelyAmerica if we let it be!
