Discover another distraction that will pull in new individuals throughout your life, for example, moving, cooking class, yoga or rec center. Whatever your specific investment is, there must be some movement in this world you generally needed to attempt, yet never had time.

When you have everything recorded, it will be much simpler to understand that being forlorn is inward condition of being and doesn't generally rely on upon what number of individuals we're encompassed by, however all the more what number of intriguing discussions we have with ourselves. 

Go and Explore New Places

Make a Challenge for Yourself

Meditate

Bond with a Dog

Pets, especially dogs, are protective against loneliness. There are many reasons why this strategy works: Dogs get you out and about, they’re naturally social creatures, and you’ll have a living being to care about. If you’re not in a position to own a dog, find ways to help care for other people’s dogs or volunteer to help dogs at a shelter that need loving attention. Other pets, such as cats and fish, can also help ease loneliness.

Have Realistic Standards

Loneliness is a mismatch between your ideal and what you actually have,Part of the solution may be to accept that you can have fun and light conversation with a variety of people, and that it’s okay if they don’t become lifelong confidantes. Also, reflect on whether you have any unrealistic standards that are making it hard to connect with others and stop feeling lonely, such as expecting too much from a new friendship too quickly or relying on another person too much.



Think Beyond Yourself

Depression can make you feel very self-focused, meaning that everything is all about you. But remind yourself that if you ask a co-worker to join you for lunch and the person can’t make it, you shouldn’t automatically assume that he or she has rejected you. The person might have a previous lunch date or too much work to leave his or her desk.

Reach Out to a Lonely Person

Whether you’re feeling lonely now or just know how it feels, you may get an emotional boost from befriending someone else who’s lonely. Some people may view loneliness as contagious, and therefore lonely people often become even more isolated. We believe there is a responsibility in the community to reach out to people who are suffering,. In doing so, you can help others and yourself, too. Examples include volunteering for an organization that helps elderly people or visiting a neighbor who’s lost a spouse.

  5. I do some of them when I used to feel lonely. I'd travel, read, or do some personal project. Often, I go to the Blessed Sacrament to meditate and pray. It makes me realize there's a world bigger than I am where others may share or experience what I also go through. Writing and photography is also a good therapy for me. -Claire Algarme

  7. Have realistic standards is the key virtue. We need to be content with what we have and count our blessings. Looking constantly for things you do not have will make you not only lonely, but miserable.

  9. I think that in your list, the most important of all is to think beyond yourself. Many people are lonely (and depressed at that) because they're so focused on themselves. When they do so, it reduces your world and takes your eyes off the blessings and the goodness around you.
