5 Tips to combat loneliness during the summer

Summer. The time of year that comes and goes far too quickly. A time for rest, recuperation, and relaxation. For going on vacation and soaking up the rays. To summarise, this is most people's favourite time of year. However, some people experience feelings of loneliness during the summer months. Being away from work and away from your normal routine can make you feel isolated if you don't have anything to do with those long hours. The suggestions below can assist you in overcoming feelings of loneliness during the summer.

  1. Take time to get out of the house.

  • Resist the urge to further isolate yourself by leaving your house. Getting out the house, even if only to go for a walk in the park or to the store, will allow you to interact with others. Speaking with others makes us feel more connected to others, which makes us feel less lonely.

  1. Go on a social media detox.

  • By going on a social media cleanse, you can avoid being bombarded with photos of what everyone else is up to this summer. This prevents FOMO (fear of missing out), which exacerbates feelings of loneliness.

  1. Connect with others.

  • Summer is the ideal time to reconnect with people you haven’t seen in a long time due to life commitments. Reconnect with old university and high school friends. Travel across the country to see family you haven’t seen in a long time.

  1. Plan a fun gathering.

  • Plan a summer-themed get-together with your friends and family. Preparing for a picnic, BBQ, or garden party gives you something to look forward to and reminds you that you are loved by others.

  1. Restart a hobby.

  • Remember that hobby you gave up when your job took over your life? That one! Summer is an excellent time to pick up any hobbies you’ve put on hold due to work obligations. Sign up for that pottery class you’ve been meaning to take or join that local swimming club you’ve been meaning to join. It will provide you with the opportunity to meet new people who share your interests.
