    I’d like to know how others are staying connected, please share your ideas!

    Some methods I use are:

    Schedule a virtual coffee meeting with people you know. Platforms like Zoom and Google Hangouts are great for this.

    Post a question on your social media platform. Ask simple things like where do people like to hike, or favorite movie, or color. It’s a great way to possibly learn something new about your friends.

    Engage in group chats or texts. I like this idea because it can simulate the banter of a room full of people.

    Send a letter or care package. You can drop something off on the porch or send it through the mail. I always enjoyed reading letters or getting a package from others.

    Share recipes through email or social media. With eating out a lot less I find myself asking others what they are cooking so I don’t grow tired of the favorite dishes I already make.

    Virtual lunch dates or family dinners. There’s nothing like having a chat while eating.

    Use technology to read to someone or take turns reading to each other. I like this idea for little ones.

    Seek out other people who share your interests on social media or the internet. THis is a great way to meet new people while social distancing is in effect.
