    I’m thankful to still be working and have a good support system. I have my work bestie who I see at work, my husband who gives so much support, and I’m able to video chat with my family.

    I think be kind to youraelf should come first and foremost. Then once you are able to take care of your own mental health, you can then spend your energies in being there for everybody else.

    It’s so important that we keep in contact with our loved ones and the outside world. Loneliness can lead to depression and even anxiety about re-joining the world.
    Thank you for writing and sharing this informative post.

    Thankfully I’m an introvert so I haven’t had many issues. My daughter is an extrovert and has been texting and calling friends. She still misses them though and can’t wait to see them in person again.

    This is so true! I am thankful that I have my family and friends around but for those that don’t I’m sure it is really tough at this time!

    With being a stay at home mom, I have been used to staying at home with my boys. It was tough to get into a routine with having my husband work from home but we have gotten to a good point. I just miss taking the kids out into public and missing family members. We have done a lot of video chats.

    My family is all here so I have not experienced loneliness. My mom on the other hand is all alone and she is having a tough time

    Thanks for sharing this. It is a difficult time we are living through and I am certainly feeling the loneliness as the days turn to weeks, now months.

    Thank you for sharing this. It is SO important to raise awareness about the impact of loneliness and isolation on our mental health, and the steps that we can take to combat that. My husband is still working outside the house, so he’s getting that social interaction, but we’ve also had him doing our grocery shopping, pet food shopping, etc. The result? I literally don’t leave the house… I’ve been trying to make a point of checking in with friends and family, and I’ve been enjoying the chance to video call with people occasionally.

    Social distancing and isolation has definitely made it more difficult for those who are alone. It’s great to be reminded to reach out to others who may be experiencing loneliness too!

    I think that part of the rise in loneliness is due to social media. A lot of people may gain the idea that others are always out and about with people,while they are at home. When in reality a lot of photos are staged, and can be from months prior. It’s important for all of us to check up on one another.

    Be kind to others and yourself can be really helpful but I really during this lockdown I’m really missing family and friends. Everything you said is so true.

    I’ve never heard of the ‘Let’s Talk Loneliness’ scheme you spoke about, I think they should advertise it a lot more, especially during this time! I’m lucky to be surrounded by my family, but I do know other people who are alone during this time and I call them as much as I can, I just hope that it helps.

    Just because we are able to connect online, doesn’t take away from the fact that we need genuine human interaction. Physical contact and face-to-face interactions are important.

    if no one helps us, let’s help ourselves. interact and initiate. We can;t always rely on somebdy else to make us happy. during this pandemic, let’s be the source of the happiness instead of asking it from others. 🙂 great post!

    Great post! Even though we may be quarantined we can still find ways to connect with people via video and phone to keep human interaction intact.

    Absolutely love the idea of sending out a physical card. It’s something that people seldom do these days. The only physical mail I get are bills! Lol.

    Thank you for sharing these tips, it’s really hard to live in crisis like this.. some may feel isolated and lonely. Adding to your list, we have to keep ourselves busy too, something that will refocus our attention. Stay safe!

    As an essential worker, even if I go outside to work, I still feel isolated when I am off work since I do not want anyone near me just in case I am a carrier. Thanks for the boost in keeping our emotional health in check.
