Loneliness can have a negative effect on health, sleep and happiness. However, in a recent study between researchers in California and Italy it has been found that there is an inverse relationship between loneliness and wisdom.
Compassion, empathy and self-reflection are all components of wisdom. Compassionate and empathetic people have been shown to be the least lonely.
Researchers believe that if they can make a person more compassionate, they can lower their loneliness. This would help to reduce stress and improve a person’s feeling of well-being.
