Recently most of the articles focus on how social networks are making us lonelier than ever, this is a contradicting statement isn’t it? I would say no! Not every social network is harmful, I would rephrase by saying no social network is harmful until your mind is in control.
Everything happens in mind, our likes, dislikes, love, hatred, we feel everything based on a person or situations and this changes with time. Same happens with social media, when you start feeling cosy staying on social media for ours, it will influence your mind!
Loneliness has become a universal human activity now! Once you start feeling lonely, it would rather increase and shadow you in everything you think and do. Better prevent than to deal with it. How can you prevent loneliness when everyone around is facing some sort of syndrome related to loneliness?
Earlier we have discussed why are you feeling lonelier than ever! And I mentioned some interesting surveys on people of different ages dealing loneliness. Social media has been the major culprit in making us feel lonelier than ever. Now let’s see how to deal with it?
Get rid of loneliness
In my opinion loneliness is not less than a monster in todays world. We all are so busy making our life and money that we stopped bothering about own blood relations. The emotional quotient in humans is declining hence the reason of loneliness. Remember when did you laugh heartfully in a real conversation with your friends or family without any stress and pressure in mind? Its ok! It can be hard to recollect, let it go!
Are you still thinking that you are a healthy human mentally? I would say obviously not! Realize that loneliness is the most dangerous disease today. Now get rid of it! It isn’t easy to get back to normal but serious and dedicated measures can help it make easier.
How can you overcome loneliness?
Everyone would say start cutting your time on social media apps. Put a time tracker on how much time you spend on each app and cut that to minimum and make sure time for social media is near to 30 minutes. There are surveys that social media is the reason for people to feel lonelier and insecure too. Understand why existing social media is making you feel insecure! This can help you more determined.
I believe in knowing the reason for a disease by patient so that he/she can prevent it next time and be careful. Also remember than loneliness can affect as badly as any physical ailment and even more sometimes.
Travel more and spend time outdoors and avoid staying alone in closed rooms. Experience the nature and observe people and their emotions. There is lot of happiness out there, it just the way we see it!
If you are interested in pets, people say pets help in overcoming loneliness as we start feeling someone is listening to us and someone is there for us who is not going to leave. I have seen most of the people having pets after a breakup!
Start being social with people. Wish people, start a conversation, ask them for a coffee or a walk. Plan dinners or weekends with friends or family and speak out your heart. You can choose your bet buddy too. Choose a person whom you can rely on to share everything you feel which really makes you feel millions of times better than ever.
These days loneliness starts only when you never let out your feelings to anyone and they star to pile up inside you and start ruling over you. Start letting them out to a person you trust and see the flip of magic in life. Wait, scroll down to next for the best magic.
