See friends to build your sense of membership. Consider joining a support group to make new friends.
Try to do something you love every day. That might mean dancing, watching a favorite TV program, working in the garden, painting, or reading.
Find ways to relax, such as meditation, yoga, massage, bathing, or hiking.
