Top Tips for Beating Loneliness as a Mum

Finding time for yourself can be difficult as a mum and talking about feeling lonely can sometimes be even harder. Emily has kindly put together these tips to help other mums that might be experiencing loneliness.

1) Find Classes

Baby classes aren’t just for baby – they are for you too! Head to your local library or children’s’ centre for free or cheap activities. There are also some great apps  to find what paid baby classes are on near to you. It’s so important to get out of the house.

 

2) Get off Social Media

Social media may make you feel more connected to your friends or peers, but it only makes you feel more lonely in the long run. You find yourself comparing your life to the “rose tinted” lives of those around you. Pick up the phone and arrange to see a friend instead.

 

3) Build a Mum Community around you

It’s so important to have people close to you who are experiencing the ups and downs of motherhood. We used to do motherhood together, but now are so often struggling on alone. Find local mums for safe playdates using the free MummyLinks app.
