Managing Holiday Loneliness

Loneliness and Your Wellbeing

Loneliness can have profound impacts on one’s physical and mental health. These effects, while always challenging, can become particularly acute during the holiday season. Feelings of isolation can lead to extreme sadness, stress, and even exacerbate existing mental health issues. And while the impacts of loneliness can be strong, the healing power of human connection is stronger.

Reaching out to friends, family, or acquaintances in any form can be a powerful first step. What’s more, engaging in community events or volunteering can provide a sense of belonging and purpose while simultaneously building social bonds. The healing power of connection is profound but it can be challenging to start. This week, we’re spotlighting the power of love, community, and friendship on one’s overall wellbeing and offering resources to help anyone combat feelings of loneliness and isolation this holiday season.
