No-one to talk to?




Feeling like you have no-one to talk to can negatively affect your well-being; loneliness has been linked to poor mental and physical health. Talking to another person, in person and /or on-line helps to release some of this negativity and can have a positive impact on your health and well-being, helping you to feel better.


During this time of year and with the pandemic affecting once again social plans, in-person university lectures and working life, this feeling of loneliness may perhaps be even stronger.

It is important to not suffer alone and get overwhelmed by how you are feeling. You are not alone.


Here are 10 helpful tips if you are feeling that you have no-one to talk to:


Tip #1 - Reach out to a friend or family member

Tip #2 - Reach out to a support service, support group and/or a helpline (Samaritans 116 123)

Tip #3 - Wait for the feeling to pass-remind yourself that feelings are temporary

Tip #4 - Do some exercise-go to the gym, go for a run with a friend, play a team sport

Tip #5 - Express how you are feeling through art, drawing, painting or write it down

Tip #6 - Start a new group class for a hobby or interest, even if it has to start on-line.

Tip #7 - Eat healthily; make or buy yourself your favourite healthy meal

Tip #8 - Make a list and build a support system of people that you can turn to when you need to talk to someone

Tip #9 - Reconnect with people you used to know

Tip #10 - Be kind to yourself; do something that will make you feel good
