Staying Connected From a Far
As we are well into out second month of social distancing, it is very important to continue social interactions with love ones and friends. Although we can not actually be together, there are many ways to find time to connect while keeping everyone safe from the virus. With that being said, this is also a perfect to reconnect with people from your past that you have maybe not talked to in awhile. At this point, we have nothing but time; why not use this time to grow more relationships? Below is a list of some of our favorite ways to stay connected!
Set up a zoom happy hour - Although many of us are not 21 yet, you can have a "happy hour" where you just take time to connect with an old friend. You can add up to 100 people on a zoom call so find a big group of people to connect with!
Make a set time to talk to friends every week - I have a group of friends with a set zoom time every week! On Thursday nights at 8, we always get on zoom and update everyone on our lives and catch up.
Send a gift - There are many websites that can set up sending flowers, customs jewelry, or even a nice note. Elia and I have found a website that will make custom jewlwery with a saying and send it to a friend via snail mail. All of the proceeds from the sales for directly to COVID relief fund. Click here to send one to a friend!
Write a hand written note - This is such a sweet and personal way to show someone you are thinking of them. Handwritten notes seem to be a thing of the past, but writing one can show extra effort and thought. Take the time to write a hand written note and deliver it to your friends door or send it in the mail.
Chalk bomb someone's drive way - Take some chalk and go color your friends driveway if the live close! This is a great way to get creative and give a personal message about how much you love them.
Bake a treat - Bake your friend / family member's favorite treat and deliver it at their door. Baking is a great way to keep you busy and a great way to show a friend you are thinking about them.
