Coping with Holiday Loneliness: Tip 3

Whether you have a toolkit of coping strategies already in place, or whether you need to begin developing that toolkit, when we have “go-to” strategies to overcome difficult emotions, then we are more likely to employ those strategies in times of distress. 

Think about what works for you when you are feeling low. Are you someone who enjoys being outside, going for walks and breathing in the fresh air? Or maybe, you prefer to seek out close friends for companionship. 

Regardless of what works for you when you are lonely, it’s important to know what that is and employ that strategy as soon as possible into your feelings of loneliness.
