Here are a few facts about the illustration: • 56×76 cm sheet (22×30″) • 300 hours of work • Millions of handmade dots & lines I hope you’ll like it :) More info: Xavier’s Facebook | Remy’s Facebook. How to beat loneliness. Loneliness is a subjective feeling. You may be surrounded by other people, friends, family, workmates — yet still feel emotionally or socially disconnected from those around you.

Other people are not guaranteed to shield us against the raw emotional pain that loneliness inflicts. But raw emotional pain is only the beginning of the damage loneliness can cause. It has a huge impact on our physical health as well. Loneliness activates our physical and psychological stress responses and suppresses the function of our immune systems. This puts us at increased risk for developing all kinds of illness and diseases, including cardiovascular disease. Emerging from loneliness is far more challenging than we realize. There are many paths to loneliness. Unfortunately, emerging from loneliness is far more challenging than we realize, as the psychological wounds it inflicts create a trap from which it is difficult to break free.

When you fall in love, the center of your universe shifts. Days and nights, steps and breaths start spinning around one particular person. There's weakness in your knees and a tremor in your voice. Your heart is beating like crazy. Now multiply it by a thousand. That's the kind of love slam poet Neil Hilborn describes in his viral poem "OCD. " "The first time I saw her, everything in my head went quiet. Hilborn, who has obsessive-compulsive disorder, wrote this ode to love back in 2011.

"I asked her out six times. "She loved that I had to kiss her goodbye 16 times, or 24 times if it was Wednesday. " In his Reddit AMA, Hilborn shared that the tics in his performance were intentional, but there were times when they become real. "Now I just think about who else is kissing her.

Hilborn also shared the fact that the girl from the poem was indeed present when he performed it in front of a big audience. Listen to Hilborn's full poem below.

In 1972, Matthieu Ricard had a promising career in biochemistry, trying to figure out the secrets of E. coli bacteria. A chance encounter with Buddhism led to an about turn, and Ricard has spent the past 40+ years living in the Himalayas, studying mindfulness and happiness. In this free-wheeling discussion at TED Global in October 2014, Ricard talked with journalist and writer Pico Iyer about some of the things they’ve learned over the years, not least the importance of being conscious about mental health and how to spend time meaningfully.

An edited version of the conversation, moderated by TED Radio Hour host Guy Raz, follows. First, Pico Iyer on how he became taken with the idea of staying still: Pico Iyer: When I was in my twenties, I had this wonderful 25th-floor office in midtown Manhattan, in Rockefeller Center — and I had a really exhilarating life, I thought, writing on world affairs for Time magazine. And so I left all that behind. MR: I hear that a lot. PI: Yes. Polyphonic Overtone Singing Demonstrated by Anna-Maria Hefele.

The Complete Guide To All Those Terrible 'Social Media is Making Us Lonelier' Videos. Social media, cell phones and modern technology are destroying our social lives, making us so very lonely and – ironically enough for a “jacked in” generation – disconnected. That’s the line you’re going to keep hearing from a very special kind of pretentious person who likes to lecture you about how they’re not one of those stupid sheeple who stare at their glowing screens like slack-jawed consumerist robots, sacrificing their precious and limited lives on the altar of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. While this message can be shared via any medium – from obnoxious status updates about how they’re “going off the grid” to vaguely-scientific claims about how social media impacts peer-group interaction – it’s at its worst when it comes in the form of a preachy, irony-blind viral video that couldn’t have conceivably succeeded without a swarm of uncritical social media users to share it for them.
