- Not having enough social contact or
- being surrounded by people but not feeling understood listened to or cared for

Find yourself alone more than you wish?
Suppose you could reach out to more people globally and locally safely?
Locally may not offer you the opportunity to interact with others? Maybe it is too expensive to travel further afield or you can not for reasons of health or disability? Maybe you don’t want to spend time on clogged roads or expensive public transport? Which means you may not have access to other people as often as you would like?

3 ways to lead a life with less stress :
- Don’t fret over spilt milk. There are bigger things to worry about so do not stress yourself over things that tomorrow or next month will look unimportant.
- Look after yourself better. If you do not care about your health then why should anyone else? Prioritise your needs. Focus on your own wellbeing more.
- Divert your mind. Find something constructive to do in your spare to take your mind off of stress at work or at home.
Build stress reduction into your life in the same way you prioritise other parts of your life. Don’t neglect what you need.
