The Paradox of Loneliness and Technology
Leaders from Headspace, Rendever, and GIF Keyboard will unravel the complex relationship between tech, connection, and loneliness. We’ll explore it from multiple angles: communication, mindfulness and mental health awareness, habit building, and social isolation.Technology connects us more than ever, yet one in five people still feel lonely, including 37% of older adults and 61% of young adults. U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy has issued a loneliness health advisory, equating social disconnection to the risks of smoking 15 cigarettes/day.
