Owner Of A Lonely Heart, You Could Soon Be The Owner Of A Sick Heart!

American National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255

The owner of a lonely heart could soon be the owner of a sick heart. More than a hundred scientific studies have proven that loneliness is equivalent to smoking about a pack of cigarettes a day and that, we know, can lead to heart disease. Loneliness can be a stronger predictor of early death than obesity or a sedentary life style.

My interest is in showing you how to overcome loneliness.

Usually when a person says s/he is an owner of a lonely heart that person is freshly out of a relationship.


If you have just broken up with someone, realize that the feeling of loneliness will pass as soon as you find yourself in another relationship. You just need time to gather yourself. Those feelings can even be mitigated simply by finding new friends.

A small percentage of people who make that statement, are suffering from chronic loneliness. A person is suffering from chronic loneliness is at a high risk of suffering the health consequences of loneliness.

So what are the solutions?

  • Start volunteering. 
  • Become a member of a religious organization.
  • Ensure that the amount of time you spend online or in front of the television is only twenty percent of your free time.
  • Eat some of your meals in restaurants and extend invitations to any one you know who might be willing to join you.
  • Find the purpose of your life and start working to achieve it.
  • Stop trying to regain your old relationship.

  • Take the time to befriend yourself.
  • Get a pet.
  • Meditate.
  • Make plans for the future instead of thinking of the past.
  • Think positively. Resist the human urge to think negatively.
  • Take actions to reach out to people.

Loneliness causes a person's thought process to turn negative.

Be aware of that and consciously turn your thought process to a positive thought process. You are going to need a positive thought process to weather the experiences you will have as you work to overcome your loneliness and become an owner of friendly heart.
