Affirmation Reflections: I Cope with Loneliness

I make it a point to reach out to others so I can stay social and happy even when external events make it necessary for me to distance from others.

To help me stay positive, I manage stress with relaxing activities, eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and sleep well.

I draw closer to my family. I enjoy family dinners and bedtime stories. I have deep conversations with my partner. I hug my children. We play games, do crafts, and share household chores.

I stay in touch with friends. We catch up with each other during virtual coffee dates and birthday parties. We play games and chat while watching movies together online.

I interact with colleagues. I participate in meetings and happy hours on Zoom. I use apps to work with remote team members and talk about our weekend plans.

I contribute to discussions online. I join groups and forums that share my interests in organic gardening and scuba diving.

I engage with my community. I volunteer to design posters and tutor children from the safety of my home. I wave to my neighbors while I walk around the block.

I fill my free time with meaningful activities. I write in my journal and work on my hobbies.

Today, I feel connected and cared for. I build strong and supportive relationships. Focusing on my life purpose and reaching out to others helps me to overcome loneliness.
