How Therapy Helps with Depression and Isolation

How Therapy Helps with Depression and Isolation

One of the primary emotions that millions of people are experiencing during the current pandemic is loneliness. New rules and regulations surrounding social distancing and minimizing the number of people that we come into contact with has changed the way in which we interact with one another this year. Entertainment and hospitality venues have been closed, our ability to travel has been limited and where possible, most of us have been told to work from home. However, if 2020 has taught us anything it is that, for the vast majority of people, human contact is a very basic but powerful need that many of us can’t cope without. Many of us are struggling to maintain our mental well-being during this pandemic and prolonged loneliness caused by isolation can significantly affect our mental health. Not only this but being lonely also increases the amount of cortisol in the body. Known as the stress hormone, too much cortisol can affect the immune system and increase the risk of some health conditions including diabetes, heart problems, obesity, and even some cancers. Now, more than ever, it is important to find out how to manage isolation and depression. Fortunately, therapy can help.
