The loneliness epidemic creates a major backlash on our mental health and well-being at home and in the workplace. Starting and building a practice that strengthens our emotional intelligence to offset the impact of loneliness has never been more important. 

According to a recent survey from Cigna, “three in five Americans (61%) classify as lonely. This represents a 7-percentage point increase in loneliness in America from their 2018 survey.”

On a global level, according to research from Sheryl Connelly, Ford’s global consumer trends and futuring manager, “Loneliness has become an epidemic of global proportions. She researched 14 countries across the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East to discover, “62 percent of Gen Zers globally agree with the statement “I feel lonely on a regular basis” and 50 perent agree “I often feel lonely when I’m around other people.”

These surveys speak for themselves.

The loneliness epidemic creates a major backlash on our mental health and well-being at home and in the workplace. Starting and building a practice that strengthens our emotional intelligence to offset the impact of loneliness has never been more important.

Our individual and collective resilience is being put to the test. But fear not! In order to transition into a brighter future, we can rescue ourselves from the jaws of loneliness created by our fast-paced modern culture and remedy the consequences it presents by developing our EI through mindful training meant to redesign the way we show up at work, at home, and at play.

In this chat, you’ll learn how to:

● Identify and rank the 5 elements of emotional intelligence —self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, social skills.

● Address and unpack some big social taboos that make us uncomfortable (i.e. racism, sexism, belonging) using EI.

● Begin a solid EI practice at home and in the workplace.

“I think the most important thing is to invest in emotional intelligence and mental balance, because the hardest challenges will be psychological. Even if there is a new job, and even if you get support from the government to kind of retrain yourself, you need a lot of mental flexibility to manage these transitions."

- Dr. Yuval Noah Harari. Renowned historian. New York Times Bestseller.
