Connecting with Your Loved One During a Pandemic

Humans are social creatures. While we certainly have the strength and intelligence to overcome almost any adversity, there is no doubt that we are hardwired to seek connection with others.

Unfortunately, the pandemic has hindered such connections tremendously via regulations and lockdown. On the bright side, we live in an era where modern technology can bring us closer to others anytime, anywhere.

Here are suggestions to stay connected with your loved ones during this pandemic:

  1. Schedule a Zoom or Skype Call.

Messaging apps like Zoom, Skype, and even Google Meet has features that enable you to bond with friends and family through the internet. After signing up with a username and email, ask your loved ones for their ID or email address and schedule a video chat so you can catch up on things.

  1. Play Online Games Together.

Spending time with friends and family doesn’t have to be costly. An example of low-cost bonding activity is playing online games together. Some examples include online jeopardy, Pictionary, and the incredibly popular Among Us.

  1. Schedule a Small Get-Together.

Now that restrictions are slowly easing up, it’s time to plan some actual meet-ups. However, there may be a limit to the number of people allowed in certain areas. Nevertheless, consider scheduling a small party with games, snacks, and movies but follow proper guidelines.

  1. Make Homemade Cards or Letters.

Way before the internet played a crucial role in our lives, people used to write letters regularly. While the art of letter writing is still alive and well, making homemade cards and sending care packages to your loved ones during this time can bring a huge smile to their faces.

While the internet cannot wholly replace face-to-face contact, we still have to follow the rules and regulations. We should also use the many options available to us via the internet. Good luck!
