Coping with COVID-19 – Tip of the Week3 Jun 2020
Our families, friends and colleagues are all important relationships that need to be nurtured, especially through times of adversity.
Making your catch-ups virtual is a creative way to stay connected, even when we must be apart.
- Schedule a virtual dinner date. Many platforms offer multi-person video calling including Whatsapp, Skype, Google Hangouts, Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and House Party.
- Have a distance movie night. The streaming service Netflix is offering ‘Netflix Party’, which synchronises the video and creates an online chat for the people in your group who are watching together, but separately. If you use a different service, counting-down to hitting ‘play’ over the phone and texting while you watch will work too.
- Enjoy after-work mocktails. Brush up on your bartending skills and share some mocktail recipes with your friends.
Although it might feel strange at first, be bold with suggesting new ways for your friends and family to maintain your bond.
