COVID 19 – Daily Drives Day 10: Social Wellbeing

–Managing what you think, say, and do

Be the friend you wish you would see in the world (would like to have)

~Gandhi

Peace be to you. The friends greet you. Greet the friends, each by name. –3 John 15

Today, perhaps, think of this:

Be Strong with Love because many people seem to feel lonely and isolated, a smile goes a long way!

Are you between the ages of 23 and 38? Are you lonely? According to a new survey by YouGov, if you answer yes to the first question you’re much more likely to answer yes to the second.

YouGov surveyed 1,254 Americans over 18 about friendship and loneliness:

  • 30% Millennials the most likely age cohort to say they felt lonely “often” or “always.”
  • 20% Gen-X said they felt lonely often or always
  • 15% Baby Boomers gave those answers
  • 22% Millennials were also the most likely to report having zero friends
  • 27% Zero close friends
  • 25% Zero acquaintances

Millennials hold the dubious distinction of being our nation’s loneliest generation.

Gallop research shares each person should spend close to six hours daily socializing with friends, family, and colleagues, via; work, home, phone, e-mail, and other communication. Those you least expect might be feeling lonely and isolated.

The 80-20 rule happens within relationships too:

80% do not reach out, 20% do

Being intentional in refilling in your social wellbeing might mean putting yourself out there and taking a risk. Connecting can sometimes feel scary-risk rejection.

Making someone else’s day by reaching out and connecting serves and lifts them up, building energy and building relationships!

Blessings to having a heart of peace, being strong with love and a smile,
