Lonely in a New City? Here’s What You Can Do

Lonely in a New City? Here’s What You Can Do

Nothing can make you feel more than a grown up than packaging your bags and leaving your hometown for good. But one thing you may not have considered is that with freedom come challenges like making new friends and battling loneliness in new surroundings. Here are some things you can do to fight loneliness in a new city:

Go Explore

You must have heard this advice a numerous times but this is because it is an excellent advice. Go out and explore your new surroundings. Find a coffee shop where you can regularly hang out and go to places which you haven’t seen in your hometown. However, remember to stay safe and always carry an emergency contact number.

Bring a Book Outside

Well, it can be any indoor activity but the idea is to find a nice spot and do your indoor activities outside. For example, read a book, knit, write or paint. Pick a beautiful park or go to an interesting coffee shop.

Sign Up for a Club or Class

Pick something you are passionate about or always wanted to learn and sign up for a class. It can be anything from a reading circle, slam poetry group, food club, or even a beginner class for pottery. This is the best way to meet people who have common interests.

Phone Your Friends Home

Missing home is one of the major causes of depression in a new place. If you start feeling alone pick up the phone and call your best friend, mom, or siblings back home. Tell them about the new things you find in the city and ask for stories from your hometown.

Once you start doing these things you will feel all your fears and emptiness about leaving home melting away. Embrace your new life and don’t shy away from taking chances. After all, new experiences are as good as therapy.
