Tip 2 - Stop looking at Facebook
Stop looking at Facebook in lonely moments.
It's all very easy to connect on Facebook. Friends and acquaintances share photo's of parties, holidays, nice days out. All the nice aspects of their lives are shared.
The difficult parts are there, but you don't get to see them. This way you get a distorted image of the truth.
And when you don't feel well, that nice image of others doesn't help you. It can create jealousy or make you feel even more lonely. So: don't look at Facebook when you feel lonely!
Tip 3 - Examine your loneliness
Realize the difference between "being lonely" (no family, friends, acquaintances) and "feeling lonely".
> What is the difference?
> Examine the feeling, did you feel like that before?
> Examine the source from which it came.
> What could make you feel less lonely?
Tip 5 - Keep a gratefulness diary
Keep a gratefulness diary.
Gratefulness is like a medicine for body and spirit. Research shows that people that are grateful, are happier in life, more successful, more forgiving and have more energy.
Grateful people are less likely to get a burn-out, depression or fears. Gratefulness is not a quality you are born with, it is something you can develop! You can start even today with a gratefulness diary and you will be surprised by the effect.
Write down every day 5 things you feel grateful for.
