Our thoughtful #protagonists today for #creativetensions #connection @NPR are our #surgeongeneral Vice Admiral Vivek H Murthy and NPR's social science correspondent Shankar Vedantam ( @hiddenbrain ) Can we heal ourselves through connection?
We all feel it. Whether we face systemic stressors of discrimination or joblessness or everyday strains of work-life balance, it’s clear we are living in an era of stress and isolation. Science tells us that chronic stress and loneliness can literally make us sick. It’s more important than ever that we have impactful ways of countering it. Can we protect ourselves and our well-being through meaningful connection? Could dialogue be a new kind of medicine, a cure for social isolation? In a world that feels increasingly fraught and fractured, how might we rise above fear and forge community to move forward? @sundanceorg #sundancetheatre
