This year’s holiday season is different for many people compared to the previous year, especially for those who are single because many are afraid to go on vacation because of the high Covid-19 case.
Being separated from family and friends makes many feel lonely, especially when they are stuck in the house without doing anything.
Don’t worry, there are actually various ways you can do to please yourself, including;
- Virtual meetings
Not being able to meet family or friends is not a reason not to be in touch with them but today’s technology such as video calls can be used to cure longing.
Virtual meetings are a simple, effective and easy alternative to gathering and are able to reduce feelings of loneliness.
- Set up a morning routine
Doing a routine every morning can cure feelings of loneliness during the current holiday season. You don’t need an overwhelming routine just to prepare breakfast or exercise.
Having a regular routine every day can help improve your quality of life.
- Create your own tradition
Loneliness is our own feeling and it can be changed. Instead of continuing to grieve, what your own tradition says that you can do every month or year so that it can remind you of certain moments in life.
For example, the tradition of watching your favorite movie or preparing a special dinner. Even when alone, it can shift your focus to the more exciting things.
- Express your loneliness
Perhaps many of us prefer to keep feeling lonely without talking to anyone. But in fact, if it is expressed, it can make us feel relieved and reduce feelings of loneliness.
