As the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic moves into the shorter days and colder weather of winter, many of us face additional challenges and hardships.

Feeling isolated and lonely can take a heavy toll on your mental and physical health. It can send your stress levels soaring, trigger anxiety and depression, and increaseyour risk for heart disease and stroke.
