How Social Isolation Is Killing Us
Social isolation is a growing epidemic — one that’s increasingly recognized as having dire physical, mental and emotional consequences. Since the 1980s, the percentage of American adults who say they’re lonely has doubled from 20 percent to 40 percent.
About one-third of Americans older than 65 now live alone, and half of those over 85 do. People in poorer health — especially those with mood disorders like anxiety and depression — are more likely to feel lonely. Those without a college education are the least likely to have someone they can talk to about important personal matters.
A wave of new research suggests social separation is bad for us. Individuals with less social connection have disrupted sleep patterns, altered immune systems, more inflammation and higher levels of stress hormones. One recent study found that isolation increases the risk of heart disease by 29 percent and stroke by 32 percent.
Another analysis that pooled data from 70 studies and 3.4 million people found that socially isolated individuals had a 30 percent higher risk of dying in the next seven years, and that this effect was largest in middle age.
Loneliness can accelerate cognitive decline in older adults, and isolated individuals are twice as likely to die prematurely as those with more robust social interactions. These effects start early: Socially isolated children have significantly poorer health 20 years later, even after controlling for other factors. All told, loneliness is as important a risk factor for early death as obesity and smoking.
The evidence on social isolation is clear.

Jenna, what an amazing and life changing course.
Jenna Forster... thanks for offering this course. As a currant participant, I'm appreciating the opportunity to get curious about myself and how I relate to others. There is a great balance between digging deeper into our own personal stories and learning the science behind our decision making/ relational living processes.
More great tools for my tool box.
Jenna focuses on how she can help you create your best; to do that she will be curious and respectfully challenge you. Your time with Jenna will be focused and productive and it will result in new thought processes that you would not achieve on your own. She is always respectful of your time, well organized and has given considerable forth thought to how you can reach your highest potential. Confidentiality, competence, intuition, intelligence and trust are a must when you choose a coach and I highly recommend Jenna on all aspects. You will look forward to your sessions because you will be pushed to your highest level. If you want real results, choose Jenna.
Jenna is a leader who models sharing, cooperation, consideration, and inclusion. Being of service to others comes naturally to Jenna and she easily creates an environment where people feel valued and important. Jenna is open to new ideas, creativity and conversation while able to maintain focus and momentum. It is an absolute pleasure to work with Jenna because she has such a high degree of integrity and she's fun! I give Jenna a super-high endorsement and would encourage you to include Jenna in your professional world - she will be a wonderful addition.
