Johann Hari, author of "Lost Connections", reveals why the root of the depression epidemic in the United States is not caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain, but rather with the individualistic way of life that is predominant throughout the United States. So if you haven't found your tribe yet, then you should consider building or joining a cohousing community!
Thanks in no small part to the digitization of our social lives, depression is becoming a bigger and bigger issue in western societies. In the space of just one... generation, we've closed ourselves off and now spend more time in front of screens — on average, 10 hours a day according to a Nielsen report — than we do with our loved ones. The New York Times journalist and author Johann Hari explains that this isn't at all how the human species is supposed to behave. He suggests more actual face time with people, more community, and above all: becoming the social creatures that we have been for millennia.
