Cool Science of Us article here about how a little loneliness can actually be a good thing. When we are hungry, we know that is our body’s way of telling us to go get food. Thinking about loneliness in the same way helps us realize that loneliness isn’t necessarily a bad thing on its own—it’s when we don’t do anything about it that it becomes a problem.
