4 ways to fight loneliness

Understanding your feeling of loneliness

In order to make changes that will truly help you, you will need to take some time to figure out why you are feeling lonely.For example, say you assume that you are lonely because you don’t have enough friends and you go out and make more friends. You may still feel lonely after making new friends if your loneliness is the result of having too many friends and a lack of meaningful connections. Consider some of the following questions to help you determine why you are feeling lonely:

  Fribo

Fribo operates by listening for what’s called “living noise,” which is all of the stuff in your home that makes noise besides you. The robot’s voice recognition is minimal (and it doesn’t record voices), so it’s much more private than something like Alexa. It’s also smarter in many ways, with the ability to understand what’s going on in its environment just by listening.

Specialized apps

If you’re ever bored and alone there are plenty of bizarre apps available online that will entertain you to a certain extent. If you’re just lonely these apps will also offer some comfort, or so according to their descriptions. Hundreds of apps like Pocket Boyfriend and Back Talk — which have avatars talking back to you — have been launched by developers over the years, and even though they are just silly apps that make no sense, they manage to stay on the market.

New Communities

From dinners that are made to integrate people to event like the ones put on by Daily Guru, there are also many local communities of diverse interests to join. Co-housing, or intentional communities of private homes clustered around shared spaces, has also become a great alternative to alleviate loneliness.
