Loneliness can have negative impacts on both physical and mental health. Mindy Todd discusses the psychology of being alone and loneliness with Psychiatrist Dr. Marc Whaley and Psychologist Dr. Michael Abruzzese.  How do we deal with emotion? The doctors talk about awareness, listening to yourself, and the practice of mindfulness. Getting your body moving combats stress hormones: take steps to move forward out of  difficulty, literally! We benefit when we take time for ourselves.
