Connection vs. Loneliness

Loneliness is not one thing - it may be a feeling of over-work, overwhelm, stagnation, depression, or simple disconnectedness; whatever form it takes, loneliness has been shown to impact sleep, mental health, cardiovascular health, energy, anxiety/resilience, and even one's longevity. These links are for your reference only and are by no means exhaustive but mean to offer some way for you to assess your own feelings.
