Researches at Brigham Young University spent the last 35 years exploring how loneliness, living alone and social isolation affect people.

They find that people who felt lonely had a 26% higher risk of dying earlier. That’s higher than heavy drinking or even smoking.

Researchers suggest reaching out to friends and family to deepen those relationships.
