Tips to Stay Socially Connected 
  • Send someone a virtual hug!

  • Coordinate regular FaceTimes/Skype/Zoom chats with friends

  • Sweat together & take an at-home exercise class together via Zoom.

  • Thinking of someone? Maybe let them know via text, phone call, or hand-written note.

  • Pop some popcorn & host a virtual Netflix Party that lets you have a watch party with friends.

  • Show off your moves and have a live, virtual dance party with friends via Zoom.

  • Host a virtual game night/House Party-- play pictionary or charades via Zoom, Scrabble, Codenames, Cards Against Humanity, Jack Box Game, and more!

  • Spirituality and religion could also offer a sense of connectedness and groundedness during a challenging time.
