Surmounting Social Isolation & Loneliness: Mindfulness Meditation

Surmounting Social Isolation & Loneliness: Mindfulness Meditation

When we develop a cough or a fever, it’s likely a sign that something is not quite right with our physical health. But what about when we feel lonely? High-quality relationships are vital for our health and well-being– and loneliness might be a sign that something is not quite right with our emotional health. This session explores the differences between social isolation and loneliness, the potential risks to our personal and relational health, and provides tips for how to effectively cope and manage.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the difference between social isolation and loneliness.
  • Identify tips to coping and managing loneliness.
  • Review mindfulness meditation techniques.

FAQs for Learn Calendar Users:

Will a recording be available?

That is entirely up to the host of this webinar/online event. If this is an eXtension Foundation hosted event - we will update this calendar listing with a link to the recording usually within 48 hours. Keep in mind, many of the offerings found here in Connect Extension are brought to you by your colleagues across the system. While we encourage them to update their listings with recordings, it is entirely up to them. 

How do I know if it is an eXtension-hosted event?

eXtension posts publicly our events to two calendars - the eXtension Foundation Member Calendar and the Opportunities for Cooperative Extension Calendar.  All other events coming from across Cooperative Extension are posted to the Learn Calendar or to one of the regional calendars. All calendars populate to the same main calendar on Connect Extension. To tell the difference between what events are posted to what calendars easily, you'll see the name of the calendar posted above the title of the event if you scroll to the top. 

What if I have trouble accessing this webinar?

Please contact the author of this calendar event. The individual that posted this event will have their username automatically listed at the bottom of the body of their post, right above the social media buttons. When you hover over that name, you are able to send them a private message.

Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
