  1. I know this topic doesn't pertain to a medical issue, but our sister site Humanastory found an interesting article on the benefits of Yoga, that we wanted to share with you, and while it doesn't talk about loneliness per se, I can only imagine that the benefits of Yoga are far reaching to people who are lonely, we felt this could help improve the lives of people who are lonely in some way (just doing our part), we love Lonely People and Dave! Yoga Benefits - Physiological - HS Community COMMUNITY.HUMANASTORY.COM Workout fads come and go, but virtually no other exercise program is as enduring as yoga. Its been around for more than 5,000 years. Yoga does more than burn calories and tone muscles. It is a total mind-body...
  2. I've noticed quite a few new people popping in lately!
  3. In its most common form, we experience loneliness as a state that waxes and wanes. Perhaps we find ourselves in a new town after a job promotion, missing old friends. Perhaps we feel a brief pang when a moment reminds us of a loved one who is no longer with us. Yet, loneliness can also be a stable trait, as measured for instance in one study over a one-year period (Russell, 1996). Interventions aimed at reducing feelings of loneliness have been carried out for decades, and narrative reviews supported the view that several types of interventions have been successful, such as those aimed at improving social skills, changing social cognition, improving social support or increasing the opportunity for social contact (see Masi, Chen, Hawkley & Cacioppo, 2011). A meta-analysis confirmed that such interventions can be effective in reducing loneliness, particularly in studies based on single-group pre-post comparisons or on nonrandomized group comparisons (Masi et al., 2011). However, these designs are methodologically less rigorous than randomized group comparison studies, for which the effect was found to be statistically significant, yet too small to reduce loneliness to the level of healthy community-living adults.

  4. One of the biggest struggles in my life has always been ADHD, I could not begin to express how frustrating it is to have this issue; I hear from a lot of individuals that claim to have this issue; but you will be surprised how few actually do; If you or anyone you know might have ADHD or even it's cousin ADD; take a moment to understand them and how their mind works. Trust me, this issue isolates the person with ADHD more than you can imagine.

  7. Loneliness may play a key role in an individual’s social constraints following a cancer diagnosis and its treatment, which in turn, may worsen symptom burden, according to a study published in the Journal of Behavioral Medicine. “Cancer patients have high rates of persistent and disabling symptoms. Evidence suggests that social constraints (e.g., avoidance and criticism) negatively impact symptoms, but pathways linking these variables have yet to be identified,” the researchers wrote. The researchers aimed to determine if cancer-related loneliness was a key link between social constraints and symptoms, such as pain interference, fatigue, sleep disturbances and cognitive complaints, by collecting surveys from 182 patients with cancer.

  8. Whenever I see these kind of articles, I cannot help but wonder, is that money actually going to help; with so much corruption these days I am reminded that they just take the money and run; take the 'Clinton Foundation' one of the biggest in the world; while we all know what it claims to do, here is a slice of reality.
  9. Humanastory was built out of the need for human companionship, a togetherness that only comes from people helping people. We wanted to be able to tell our stories and share our experiences with everyone who needed them. By us telling our stories we are able to share that moment that forever changed who we are. But the idea is to not just tell our story, but share the journey in how we overcame that moment in our lives, allowing others to read and see the story and connect to the one sharing it. Most people want to tell the horrid things, but fail to share the accomplishments. At Humanastory we are not those people; we are the strong, the winners, and the achievers. We believe that sharing our experience will help someone out there in the same situation, and allow them to connect with others that have already conquered their struggle. We give the resource within our stories to help those who otherwise would fall - the help to stand up and face what is in front of them without fear or doubt. We believe everyone has the ability to succeed in life. If you are alive on this little rock hurling through that endless void we call space, you are a Humanastorian! How much of one, is up to you.
