Staying In Touch With Those You Love

Due to current social distancing guidelines, it’s important that we get creative with how to stay in contact with the people we love.

The good news is that many options to see loved ones are available when you can’t interact in person, including apps like Zoom, Skype, Facetime, and Facebook Messenger!

When contacting your loved ones, here are several activity suggestions:

  • Talk about a favorite memory.
  • Talk about exciting future plans.
  • Sing a song together.
  • Read a book together.
  • Read an original poem to them.
  • Write a story together.
  • Create a recipe together.
  • Share some old photos so that you can enjoy them together.
  • Learn a few good jokes to help them laugh.

Online games are another great way to spend time with a loved one. Popular online games include Bingo, Scrabble, Card Games, and many more.

Traditional letter writing has gone to the wayside in recent years, but there is something warm and caring in a carefully handwritten message: the unique script that belongs to a friend, the feel of the paper in your hands, and the excitement that comes with the arrival of a letter meant only for you.

A personal letter is certain to brighten up a loved one’s day, and along with your letter, you can also send original artwork. Using your favorite media, create a bright and beautiful piece of art that will bring a smile to your loved one’s face.

Let the people in your life know how you feel about them and how they have positively impacted your life. It can offer a great amount of comfort to those who may be feeling isolated.
