ways to handle lonliness
I am confused today but going to try to post this.
Loneliness can be as hard as having company. Boredom and loneliness go hand in hand.
If you have found a way to work with loneliness please share.
I chat with familiar people at thrift stores once a week while exploring the store.
Neighbor will speak in passing when I walk my dog.
I joined a few FB groups and "chat" there.
I take my camera on walks and commune with natural world.
Go someplace to swim or do winter walking.
Volunteer at an animal shelter or charity (hospice and St Vincent de Paul have shops that need people to sort items, hang them, and easy to make friends there)
Pick up roadside garbage.
gardening, remove weeds, water plants
feed the birds
sitting at airports watching planes take off and land
art projects from very small to painting a wall
exercise classes that suit you - yoga, silver sneakers aerobic, dance class
Canada has been inventing ways to have company and enjoy her love of art. If I were musically inclined or had a way to get to a class I would like to have taken beginner voice lessons. I do sing when I am by myself on my walks.
we have to reinvent our worlds to suit our needs.
