One of the best ways to overcome our own sadness and loneliness is to feel like you’re brightening someone else’s day. If the holiday season has you feeling low, go out of your way to connect with someone else who may be feeling the same thing, such as an older adult. If there aren’t any in your life, try connecting with a virtual volunteer opportunity through a nursing home or senior citizen center!
