How hard is loneliness? Earlier, doctors assured that life without a family negatively affects the state of health in general, and the lack of communication negatively affects the psyche. However, do not rush to plunge headlong into social activities. Sometimes it is useful to be alone with yourself.
More recently, a group of American scientists from Yale University came to the unexpected conclusion that hot water replaces the company and removes the feeling of isolation from society. It turns out that in most cases, subconsciously trying to get rid of this feeling of loneliness, in real life people take a bath and shower. The more acutely a person feels loneliness, the more often he takes a bath and shower, the longer he spends on this time and the higher the water temperature. Experts have concluded that physical and social warmth are somewhat interchangeable when it comes to everyday life.
The results of another study showed that regular solitude allows a person to become whole, helps to focus on important and think creatively.
According to psychologists, such a behavior strategy also makes it possible to accumulate the forces necessary to communicate with others. Psychotherapist Philip Hodsan of the British Counseling and Psychotherapy Association agrees with this view.
“People spend hours every day building relationships. However, this requires first to establish good contact with yourself. And for this you need to know yourself. Spending time alone is the only way,”he explains.
And expert Mark Vernon adds that consumer culture is constantly distracting a person. Remaining with himself, the person begins to panic, writes Meddaily.ru. This is especially true for those who are trying to escape from their true feelings.
