Dealing with Loneliness

With mandated social distancing, it is only natural to feel an increase in loneliness when we may be separated from family and friends. Be kind to yourself and know that there is nothing wrong with you.

Become Socially Creative

Being creative and learning new ways to work and connect with others is key. Set up/join a virtual game night, karaoke or trivia challenge. Try joining a personal interest group (e.g., online fitness classes, a video game tournament or book club).
