Researchers have found that loneliness takes a physical toll, and is as closely linked to early mortality as smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day or consuming more than six alcoholic drinks a day. Loneliness is even worse for longevity than being obese or physically inactive.
The concept of loneliness, especially for men, resonates for lots of dads. One of our goals here at Menschite is to create a community of support. Call up a fellow mensch-y dad and get a beer or coffee. You may feel awkward and you may encounter periods of silence. But in the end, it will be really nice and you’ll want to do it again.
