Whether you’re social distancing by choice or out of necessity, loneliness and feelings of isolation are normal.
Here are some ways to stay connected with your friends, family, and community from afar.
- Share photos with your friends and family via social media so that they can see what you’re up to and you can stay up to date with what’s happening in their lives. Wondering where to start? Try taking a selfie or sharing photos of a project you’re working on.
- Nothing beats an in-person face to face conversation, but a virtual hangout can get you pretty close. Schedule times to get online and meet up with your friends and family via Zoom, Google Hangouts, FaceTime, or another video hangout platform.
Start a Conversation
- A conversation doesn’t have to be scheduled and it doesn’t have to occur over video. Text messages and phone calls are another good way to start a conversation and push back feelings of loneliness.
Engage in Self Care
- Take time to pamper yourself by indulging in a long bath, meditating, or participating in a virtual fitness class. These activities will help you relax and encourage a positive mindset that will help to offset loneliness.
