This is the simple cure for loneliness, according to an expertLoneliness can be a deadly feeling and once we start a string of thoughts, it can trigger depression in us.

We feel lonely when we are disconnected with the outside world and don’t feel worthy enough. Not only depression, loneliness can also lead to death.

In today’s day and age, more millennials want to stay alone and prefer their own living space. Millennials are travelling alone and slowly eating alone is also becoming a ritual.

Since we are living more alone, loneliness can creep in anytime, especially when we are sad due to work, deaths, broken relationships etc.

But, make sure you come out of the stream of thoughts and Baya Voce, the host of ‘The Art of Connection’, a web series looking to experts from across the globe on how to the live your most fulfilled life, has a perfect way to get out of loneliness.

In her TEDx talk, Baya revealed a simple tool to come out of loneliness and create more happiness, fulfillment, and connection.


Baya says ‘Find a connection’. And in order to feel connected we need to feel seen, heard, and valued.

Baya said prioritize connection and focus on relationships and then look for an ‘anchor of connection’.

An anchor is created simply by spending quality time with people who see, hear and value you.

You can create an anchor is through ritual. Ritual doesn’t have to religious, whatever you do just do it on a day-to-day basis.

The key to making ritual such a powerful tool for connection is that ritual is repeated action plus intention. Connection is created by the things we go back to.

So, to fight loneliness, don’t do something new. Find something you’re already doing with your friends and families or in your intimate relationships or within your communities. And do that thing over and over and over again. Do it with intention. Do it during the good times and do it during the mundane. So when the inevitable emotional storms hit you have your ritual to go back to. You have your very own anchor of connection.
