it was a tweet i've read at the started this 10 demik as could be 19 for us to physically distance from one another. society is at risk of a social recession. a social recession is marked by an increase in loneliness and isolation. it was posted in mid march by a former surgeon general benighted states. doctor vivek murphy, and already by that point, entire regions and key cities of some countries had been in lockdown finelli to home from the start. it was clear that beating this pandemic was going to require sustained physical distancing and quarantine for medics and mental health specialists around the world. another thing was clear to that the locked down we're going to reveal the extent of another hidden public health issue. loneliness ah,
11:35 pm
the social distancing physical distancing. quarantine locked down so fast elation, more than any other time in recent history. anti social behavior has become part of our global reality because to separate ourselves from one another to stay for long periods of time at home to not meet with friends and family not commit to work or even sit in a restaurant or a t, f, a. all of that is quite anti social. it's not how humans a why. why, even though the physical health benefits of the clover triggered, locked down have been undeniable. the psychological impact has been inescapable to italy's experience with corona virus was harrowing. it was one of the 1st european countries to be effected and despite strict looked down, it has had more than $36000.00 corona vars related debt. as of october this year,
11:36 pm
in early march after a coven 19 outbreak flared up near her home. 74 year old psychologists, roberta brovio, went for colleagues, set up a free mental health hotline for long body residence. she began to receive calls immediately listening to maria from the cooking for. ready me because i need to know someone telling me
11:37 pm
when i spoke to rebecca, she was coordinating a network of 200 professional psychologists volunteering their time during the lockdown. they'd cools from all over italy, from sicily, in the south to i author in the far north. they've even received messages from us far abroad. it's due by the united states and australia. quick assessing thing. those are the 2. 0, you got the noise. when i see me, campbell, every be going to the side with me. my visa, the you will not be going to be 5 work. yeah. i don't know. you. dozens of people don't know if they play on it. increase the joining us. i mean, do you have to get back to
11:38 pm
see what they think that, you know, do you know they're not going to actually develop a career to read the people that it and yeah. my son kaylay accounts are the maintenance darling and make sure that that and can i ask how many calls that come through during this interview? the camera to carry to the tunnel. queen nietzsche, humans have an innate psychological drive to connect with others. what we're learning more and more now is that, that need to connect its physiological to just weeks after the world health organization declared covered 19 global pandemic researches at the massachusetts institute of technology. mit posted a preliminary report on social isolation and some of the new responses that triggers the findings pointed to one. telling conclusion. need to connect as,
11:39 pm
as primal or is fundamental as i need to eat. just 10 hours of total isolation can leave the brain feeling starved. i spoke with julian, hope that a professor of psychology and neuroscience at brigham young university. not wired to be this. she says that serge of panic. cool. that sinking sensation in your stomach when you're physically cut off from people is a biological response that it's evolved in us over millennia, throughout human history. and we needed to rely on others or our survival, whether that protection or efficiency in obtaining resources, our brains have adopted to expect others. so when lacks approximate, each other's particularly trusted others. in essence, us honest data alert, because now we have, you manage the threats in our environment on our the latest sites on loneliness
11:40 pm
shows that acute isolation has physical health repercussions to such as an increase in heart rate and blood pressure surge and stressful minds. and internal inflammation. according to research published in the cardiovascular medical journal, heart, people who feel lonely, a 29 percent more likely to develop coronary heart disease, and 32 percent more at risk of suffering a stroke. julian has also studied how social isolation impacts mortality. what we were able to find was that being lowly was associated with a 26 perfect increased risk for death being socially isolated, 29 percent and living alone, 32 percent. and although there were some relative differences, they weren't significantly different from each other. meaning that both being objectively isolated and that subjective feeling of loneliness, both significantly predict risk earlier. what the suggest is that we need to take
11:41 pm
our relationship seriously. for the 1st time in human history, greater numbers of people, little ages, places, and living alone in the u. s. for instance, the percentage of single person household has increased from 30 percent in the ninety's sixty's to 28 percent. today, in europe, things are higher still, with around 38 percent of dutch and nearly 42 percent of germans living alone, and in fact, from ecuador to japan. this upward trend is visible all around the world. when the pandemic break one of the catch phrases that caught instant popularity was social distancing. however, when i spoke with cecilia just eric clinton, burge, he made an important point about the terminology. it isn't quite accurate. understood what was important about that idea helps that i realize right away that there was a problem. because social distance thing is very different from the physical thing . actually, people we need to get through the situation,
11:42 pm
certainly to be done afterward, is social proximity, social solidarity. we need to be looking out for each other, taking care of each other and making sure that we are helping people who have the greatest needs. eric was quick to point out to me that despite the increasing numbers of people living solo, they would automatically fall under the category of the people most likely to suffer loneliness. people who live alone in ordinary times are actually quite social, an average, and they're more likely than married people to spend time with friends and neighbors. they go out into public and shared spaces. the problem now is that everyone who lives alone has been forced to be socially isolated for the 1st time ever. and i fear that this has generated a spike of loneliness to and so as much as we're in an economic recession now we're also in social recession, with the lockdown limiting travel. everything from simple commutes to long,
11:43 pm
whole plain journeys and physical distancing. restricting how close we can get to each other. many people thought out ways to deal with the social recession. if you like me and i've been fortunate enough to have access to a laptop or a phone and a good wife fi connection, then technology is been an undeniable benefit. what's that? we chat face time? scott zoom, tick tock. all these apps and many more have made staying in touch with people so much easier. and yet so many have still felt paid by pencils, oscillation, and anxiety. many of these tools feel very synthetic, right? i thought about the idea that this may be somewhat analogous to where they have been, you know, incredibly beneficial and making food more accessible to many more people. but i also come with potential and you know, just like process food mary blindly in the degree to which they are nutritious. so
11:44 pm
do many or beans tools. they still lack that personal catch. you can't reach across the screen and guess what? yeah, i think my mom and dad and i really would be in agreement. i'm grateful that i can have a conversation with my parents who are in, in other states and based time or that i can teach my students in new and them. you know, here we are doing this interview, the address screen, but i think the majority of people at the end of this just can't wait to get back in the life to be in a restaurant or a cafe, or library or playground or a soccer field. spend time with him being in the states and we feel secure enough to do it. i think we'll realize just how much we depend on and should value the social structure that we take for granted. learning, this is not a single emotion. it's a complex feeling that consists of many different emotional states, from anger,
11:45 pm
to fear, to grief, to insecurity and uncertainty. in january, as the chinese government implemented, the 1st major locked down, the world will see this year in will hand city. not only were medics moved in to deal with code 19, but there was an infusion of psychologists and psychiatrists from the start to do with the mental and emotional impact of the distancing isolation and fear. even mental health professionals not physically in on guarding bolt. then you're in shanghai and you started the check electrical assistance project. how does it all come back down to 100 to one and get you to ship? sure. name you go. you mean you go down the

when we face grim situations winning zion looms, we seek out coping mechanism during the lockdown, watching communities of diverse distance. people try to cope together with fascinating in italy, balconies became spaces for music and dance, and even enabled people to share food with those who couldn't afford enough of their own. they will ha humorous huff whistle video is a line of people in different countries trying to play sports or getting a work out to get in malaysia. people flickered their lights on and off in a symbolic and often poignant chill, philadelphia and back with a look downstairs again. when no one really knew much about the buyers, and even few understood the pros distancing chance of jo or keep fighting between now again, jim current engine. you go you jimmy,
11:51 pm
all their passion mailed shoes that you for your patient. mentioned to me that you can't even watch on how we should to i got a gentleman which i you need to know the job should. thank you and i think you should. yeah. you know, it really comes back to we are social beings. we are not meant to be alone. you know, it's analogous to the idea of hearing. the water is not a face to drink and yet we're also stars. she. and so we're looking for opportunities in a variety of ways, and i'm actually loving some of the creative ways that people are finding to, to try and connect under these incredibly strange circumstances. but there's been something else as well. laughing together, funny humor meets everything that's going on. we may not see it quite like that.
11:52 pm
but that's a coping mechanism to. well, you know, like what goes on and, you know, we need some relief to too much to space, the pressure and anxiety all the time. and i think the laughter is what keeps us. you know, that it's healing is for them. and so, you know, they're really moments where you can't laugh, but i've seen videos that people, you know, in the hospital find ways to make like medical workers to take time to thing to their patients or clicking music to let people spirit bunch of god, the need for you, they live at the height of them down too much more than 100 countries had instituted either partial or full lockdown. that's more than 3000000000 people indoors,
11:53 pm
physically distancing it was a radical change to how so many of us are used to living. and there were significant concerns that there would be a spike in loneliness and all the sociate issues. ready but a study conducted between january and late april in the united states by research and florida state university college of medicine reported some interesting early findings that spike in loneliness, that mental health specialists. what bracing for it seems not to have happened. of course, there were people who felt a nuisance of isolation, there were others. his loneliness momentarily intensified. but over all the fees of a raging epidemic of loneliness didn't materialize. i don't actually think there's alone. i don't like the use of that concept. i mean, we're living through a panoramic right now. we know what it means to have major help crisis. ready and i fear the language doesn't really help us get the precise tools that we need to feel better remaining part of it is, is finding the threat of connection,
11:54 pm
a shared experience. this isn't global phenomenon. it's affecting people of variety of backgrounds. and so they're in this collective experience that we are not only facing this together. we're grieving together, but we also in order to fight it, we need, we need to work together, right? and so there is what i hope, a growing sense of humor and comfort. as we are staying home, it's deeper tax those in our community, our phase are linked to the day to the people who live around us. you know, whether it's in the next room or the next building or the next block or the next state. we're deeply interdependent and for me, recognizing our interview and it helps you to think about how to build solidarity in the sense that we're in together and refusing acting as being the way to get
11:55 pm
through the way you can close the door and turn into the vendor list is a formula for more division. it's not me personally at home. everybody else is having an exciting life at tardy them so and i hope that people are able to. ready take comfort in that fact. here's the thing about loneliness. you can be surrounded by other people and still feel lonely. because just being in a crowd isn't enough to create the kind of connection human need. and it's counterintuitive, as it may seem. it's this very feeling of loneliness that serves as a trigger for us to find ways to make things better for us. so we become aware of which emotional needs are being left on so filled. and we make the effort to reach out and talk to people. there's a lot of things that we get in life because we feel occasional loneliness. it push
11:56 pm
that to go out in the world and build friendships and can causes to get introspective. they can help us, you know, think creatively. it's only really dangerous when evolved into something more durable and biting. and you know that when that happens, you really do stretch and it's horrible for around a good point going. emergence or knowledge of race, she puts you on it for me please. the safety of see could be so that should be somebody you'd be selling total sooner. i'm sure they might bring that goes on board and runs the gym. i don't see anything that's the
11:57 pm
stigma around talking about love. and so one other approach that i have is from the situation, given that i think so many people are really lonely. the lose some of that sting mother. people may be more open about talking about that and their experience better. and recognize that we're not allow me news news, news, news, news,
