10 Tips On How To Stop Feeling Lonely

A sad new study says that long-term, chronic loneliness is worse for your physical health than obesity. Researchers say that loneliness is linked to higher levels of stress, high blood pressure, and a weaker immune system… all things that can seriously mess up your health.

Don’t get too freaked out if you’ve been feeling a little lonely for the past few months. I think this study is referring to people who have been feeling miserably lonely for years of their lives. We all get a little down in the dumps about feeling lonely once in a while – sometimes it lasts a few days, sometimes a few months. Whether you’re lonely because you just went through a breakup, you’re sick of being single, or you don’t have many friends, one thing is for sure: it’s not a great feeling at all.

Speaking from my own experience, I know how much loneliness can get to you. As a 14-year-old freshman in high school, I felt a loneliness that I can’t quite explain, even now. It didn’t make sense – I had a loving family, a decent amount of friends, and I was involved in a lot of different after-school activities. But at the same time, I was falling out with a lot of my oldest friends, and it was making me feel completely alone in the world. I felt this way a second time in college, after breaking up with my boyfriend of five years. Both times, I learned how to snap myself out of it, and now I’d love to help anyone else feeling that way.

So, if you feel like you have no one to turn to, and you’re sick of being alone in your room all day, here are 10 tips on how to stop feeling lonely. Good luck, girls.
