The sense of isolation and lack of connection, clearly made worse by the COVID pandemic, is associated with a wide scope of health issues and even mortality. So what do we do?   Some important steps are presented in our podcast, an interview with the author of Project Unlonely - Healing Our Crisis of Disconnection, Dr. Jeremy Nobel.   Jeremy Nobel, M.D., MPH, is a primary-care physician, public health practitioner, and award-winning poet with faculty appointments at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Harvard Medical School. He is the founder and president of the Foundation for Art & Healing (www.ArtandHealing.org), whose signature initiative, Project UnLonely, addressing the personal and public health challenges of loneliness and social isolation, has gained national visibility.   This is an important topic, not just for the elderly, living alone, but for all of us. For it is clear that any of us can feel lonely and disconnected, even in the midst of our busy lives.   ==== TIMESTAMPS: 0:00 Intro 2:10 Our Epidemic of Loneliness 6:11 Leveraging the Creative Arts for Healing 12:21 Evaluating Loneliness in Studies 16:31 How Loneliness Equates to Heightened Disease Risk 19:43 The Loneliness Spiral 21:56 Inflammation 24:38 How World Events Impact Well-Being 26:45 What You Can Do: Art as a Medium for Healing 31:05 How Psychedelics Overlap with Creativity 35:44 Cultural Norms Impact Loneliness 38:31 The Biggest Challenge for Moving Forward 40:57 The Potential of Awe and Nature-Connection 44:24 Correlation Between Loneliness and FMRI Imaging 50:00 Conclusion ====   JEREMY NOBEL, M.D., MPH, is a primary-care physician, public health practitioner, and award-winning poet with faculty appointments at the Harvard T.H.
