Today, people all around the world are living fast paced lives, and several are time poor. Hence, loneliness and isolation have become the norm in the lives of individuals both personally and socially. Home and personal interactions are also being replaced by virtual ones. These factors contribute to an increase in individuals feeling loneliness.
Loneliness is defined as a state of mind, arising from a perceived lack of social contact while isolation arises from an actual lack of social contact. Loneliness and isolation lead to poorer physical and mental health issues such as depression, suicide, substance abuse and lack of meaning in life.
