Loneliness can be overcome.
It does require a conscious effort on your part to make a change.
Making a change, in the long run, will make you happier, healthier and have a positive impact on you personally.


Ms Tracey Crouch, Minster for Loneliness has stated

"People are beginning to talk about it a lot more.  We're beginning to recognise the health impact of loneliness and why it's important to remove the stigma around talking about it in order to ensure that we have better physical and mental wellbeing."

Loneliness can be attributed to low self-esteem and lack of confidence.  People who lack confidence in themselves often believe that they are unworthy of the attention or regard of other people. This can lead to isolation and chronic loneliness.

Other contributing factors include situational variables, such as physical isolation, moving to a new location, and divorce. The death of someone significant in a person's life can also lead to feelings of loneliness. Loneliness can also be a symptom of a psychological disorder such as depression. 

According to British Red Cross research in 2016 - 9 billion adults of all ages and backgrounds are often lonely.

Research also shows that loneliness can impact stress, heart health, and the body’s immune system.  But these are not the only areas in which loneliness takes its toll.

"Lonely adults consume more alcohol and get less exercise than those who are not lonely. Their diet is higher in fat, their sleep is less efficient, and they report more daytime fatigue”.

Think about what is making you feel lonely.


Being alone is not the same as being lonely. There is nothing wrong with being on your own if you are comfortable with it.

If you're on this page, however, something probably doesn’t feel quite right for you

It might be that you have a  persistent feeling of numbness, or nothingness, loss and/or lack of direction.

Considering how you feel generally is the first step. Feeling lonely can be very stressful and can have a big impact on your general wellbeing, which might make it even harder to make positive steps to feel better. 

Think about how some of the following are affecting how you feel and whether you can do anything to change them:

We might associate stress with things like work or family pressure, but research has shown that being lonely also causes high levels of stress.
Getting too little or too much sleep can have a big impact on how you feel.
Low Self-esteem
Feeling lonely can have a big impact on your confidence and self-esteem, which can only make it harder to open up and make new connections. 
Movement & Exercise
Our mental and physical health are closely linked. Taking up sport or exercise can help you feel better in lots of different ways. 
Exploring how what you eat affects your mood might help you to feel better. 
Open up
Its ok to ask for help. Family and friends, whilst well intentioned are often not the best people to help you.
