We all have a need for human connection.
It’s just the way our brains work. Right now we are being encouraged to stay at home and self-isolate.
Yes, staying at home is the best thing we can do right now to prevent the virus from spreading.
However, that doesn’t mean we should completely cut off all communication.
Stressful times can help bring people together.
Several studies show that spending time with others during threatening situations can reduce stress. Just knowing someone else is there can be very comforting.
Thanks to social media, there are so many ways we can stay in contact with friends and family in the comfort of our own homes.
There are several free video chatting services out there. Talking on the phone is great, but sometimes it isn’t enough. Video chatting can help feel closer to our loved ones.
If you want to go the extra mile, you can even organize large group video chats with friends and family.
We all know the best part of a movie is discussing it with friends and family.
Just because you can’t be in the same room, doesn’t mean you can’t still discuss the movie.
Call up some friends and schedule a time to watch a film virtually. You can text or video chat throughout the film and bet what will happen next!
We’re all in this together!
