‘Yet, with almost a quarter of Australians living alone it is all too easy to live a lonely life.
It is no surprise then that to assuage our feelings of disconnect more and more people are connecting to the internet.
As of February 2012, Tumblr reports having over 46 million blogs while WordPress hosts over 72 million.’
What’s the solution? Obviously the best way to fight loneliness is to replace internet connections with genuine human connection. If this goal seems impossible, research shows that interacting with a pet (a dog or a cat) can greatly improve emotional health of a person. It sure beats on-line interaction.
So stop reading this blog and get a dog (or a cat) instead!
