Feeling Alone? A New Year’s Resolution
There is research and more research about the importance of connecting with others in order to stay mentally healthy. So much so, in fact, that Dr. Ned Hallowell calls connection “the other Vitamin C.”
Yet struggling in your marriage can make you feel (and sometimes actually be) really isolated. If this is the case for you, I’m asking you to make a New Year’s resolution to reconnect. You will be the better for it.
That might be connecting with others with similar issues – through my support groups (starting in January); couples seminar (next session starting Jan 18) or in the forum. Or it might be connecting more often with friends, family or to each other in counseling. Or to people you have yet to meet in an exercise class or meditation circle.
Just don’t do this alone!!!
Why not start thinking right now about how you might better connect?
