So. Yesterday I mentioned a few ways of trying to stop missing friends by keeping in touch with them.
Staying in touch with people isn’t always the best way to deal with missing friends, though. For example, if you’re between sending letters or emails, and your friends are unable to talk real time, it doesn’t necessarily make sense to write another letter.
So here are some ways to try to stop missing friends that are generally solitary activities, anyways.
1) Write. This works especially well if you’ve got stories you want to tell.
2) Research. Learn something new! And then, you’ll be able to share something with your friends. Possibly. At the very least, you’ll have learned something. And that’s worthwhile.
3) Read a good book. This is one of my personal favorite options. Especially if it’s a favorite book you haven’t read for a while. Then it’s like visiting an old friend again. And it’s also something you wouldn’t want to do if your friends were around. So savor it! You’ve got opportunities to do fun things on your own!
4) Take a nap. This of course is only a temporary fix. But it does sometimes help- especially if you’re missing people because you’re tired.
5) Play a computer game / video game / something you can do on your own. I don’t have as much experience with this, except for online flash games. But even so, once again that’s something you probably wouldn’t have done with your friends as much, so it’s something you can do on your own, and not feel guilty about doing.
So there you go. I hope that helps!
