Schedule Check-In Time
We get it. At the end of a long work or school day, sometimes all you want to do is eat dinner and go to sleep. We all have those evenings once in a while, and that’s completely okay.
But here’s the deal – when you do something so often, it can easily become a habit.
If you feel like you don’t have the time to reach out to friends and family, go ahead and set regular reminders for yourself.
When that reminder goes off, all you need to do is call or text one friend to check in and say hi.
Create a Routine
Solo spontaneous outings and adventures can be a lot of fun – but so can routine.
Having a set weekly or even bi-weekly get-together scheduled in your calendar will eliminate the need to text back and forth to figure out logistics.
It may take some planning at first, but it will be worth it.
Work Towards Common Goals
Goals are very personal and should be done for you and only you.
You should never feel pressured to do something you don’t want to do because you feel like it’ll make your friend happy.
However, if you and a friend share the same goal, you can definitely work towards it together.
That way, you can experience the journey together and even bounce ideas off one another.
Let’s say you and a friend both want to become fluent in French. Quizzing one another or watching French movies together can help make the overall process a little more fun and even deepen your relationship.
