What is loneliness?
Loneliness is the feeling we get when our need for social contact and close relationships goes unmet. Loneliness is different from being alone — it can happen even when we’re surrounded by others. On the contrary, some may feel perfectly content living in solitude.
Chronic loneliness can lead to decreased energy, feelings of self-doubt, hopelessness, anxiousness, trouble sleeping, and changes in appetite.
How can loneliness be addressed?
Loneliness can often come on as a result of big life changes. For example, the death of a loved one, changing jobs, moving to a new city, starting university can all bring on feelings of loneliness and isolation. We can manage loneliness by focusing on social relationships and connection.
