You are likely to feel lonely from time to time. 

This is a feeling you are likely to have even if you have several friends or family members around you. 

Fortunately, these three things can help you deal with loneliness:

1. Volunteer

When you feel lonely, you could use the time positively by helping others.

As you feel more alienated and probably start having evil thoughts, you could use the time to give back to society.

As you offer a helping hand, your emotional well-being is enhanced. 

Whenever you spare time to help the less fortunate in society or the elderly, you will notice how valuable you are in positively changing society. 

This feeling will motivate you to continue volunteering, and you will never feel lonely.

2. Take a walk

An evening or morning walk is usually great, although you are free to walk at any time. 

Because loneliness is associated with inactivity and being alone, counter it by taking a walk once you start feeling deserted. 

Walking needs concentration, and this can help you shift attention from what might be bothering you.

3. Sign up for a class

Think about the best thing you love doing and seek a group that offers related classes near you. 

In case you love dancing, join a dance class. 

This will keep you busy, and you are likely to make new friends. 

You could also join your favourite sports team in the neighbourhood.
