Covid has messed up all of our routines and many of the people we used to see are now off limits.
But we still need to connect and we still need each other.
We’ve come up with a few ideas you can intentionally act on to stay connected.
Why not create a Virtual Bubble?
Pick two or three people who you will reach out to and connect with online on a regular basis. Invite them in to your virtual bubble and stay in touch supporting them with what they may need, and in turn, they may support you with what you need. The best relationships are reciprocal.
You’ll be living in your neighbourhood long after Covid so why not strengthen your relationships now.
Last week’s post GETTING INVOLVED BY GETTING CREATIVE listed many different types of events you can get involved with. Get out a calendar, pick a few things to look forward to and invite a friend to join you. Concerts, museum tours, dinner parties, and many other ideas all
What can you post that will encourage others to participate in a new conversation?
Making some bread, share it with a neighbour.
Haven’t spoken to that cousin in three years, give them call.
Looking for a partner for an online game, invite someone.
Don’t think twice about doing something nice. Now is the time for action and spontaneity.
