POSITIVE WAYS TO DEAL WITH LONELINESS
Well, now you have a fair idea of just how it impacts some aspects of your overall health. So, you should do what’s within your power to overcome the feeling.
Try to step out more often, make new connections if old connections seem lost or broken. Break away from the vicious circle of social media and the virtual world which can leave you isolated from reality. Indulge in hobbies or activities you like because even if it may be ‘me time’, it will make you feel happy. Practice gratitude and mindfulness to feel more optimistic about life, and you will reduce your feelings of loneliness.
