Loneliness kills. Just like cigarettes. Social isolation is such a problem that it is shortening lives and US health officials have declared it to be an epidemic. Earlier this month, the US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek H. Murthy said: “It is associated with a greater risk of cardiovascular disease, dementia, stroke, depression, anxiety, and premature death.” We’re publishing this interview on memorial Day in the US – a public holiday which for many people is a day of socialization, family gatherings and fun events away from work. Laura Putnam is the founder of Motion Infusion – a company with a mission to bring movement to the workplace.  She’s also an advocate for measures to combat the loneliness and isolation that many people feel through a lack of social connections.
