Connection is the Cure

Social connections aren’t just nice to have. They are in direct relationship to our personal and community health, with loneliness and isolation now understood to be as impactful as smoking and obesity. In an era of social media, divisive politics and crammed calendars, true connection can feel elusive. Research tells us, however, that the quality of the connection is more important than the quantity, and it’s necessary if we want to be healthy and whole.
