As COVID-19 continues to keep most of us at home, as social beings, we naturally crave human interaction and connections. There are some safe ways to keep you connected with your friends and family this winter without feeling like you are completely isolated. Here's a list of ways that you can still feel connected to your friends and family.
Hang Out on Zoom. As a lot of us continue to study and work from home, you may be familiar with video conferencing software such as Zoom. Well do you also know that you can use Zoom for socializing? Whether you round up your crew to have family catchup, happy hours, parties or breakfasts over Zoom, you can do this all in the comfort and safety of your own home.
Try an Online Workout Class. If you want to stay active and healthy but still find it challenging to work out alone at home, then we've got a solution for you. Take an online workout class and get physical. You can invite your pals to join for yoga, power workouts, Pilates, dancing, and much more. Additionally, if you pay to attend these classes, you're supporting people who have lost regular clients in the fitness industry.
Host a Netflix Watch Party. Teleparty formerly known as Netflix Party couldn't have come at a better than now. Teleparty allows you to synchronize video playback on Netflix, Disney+, Hulu and HBO so that you can now safely hold long-distance online movie nights with your friends, and TV watch parties.
Start or Join a Book Club. Get excited about reading and get social at the same time. Starting your own book club is easy; just select a book and schedule times to meet and discuss the chapters you choose to read for that session. Reading can be more fun when you're doing it together.
Play Virtual Online Games. Even if you are not much of a gamer and are more of an unconventional gamer, there's a game for everyone online. Skribbl is a free drawing game and guessing name similar to Pictionary. Jackbox is a virtual game room with various mini competitive games where your cellphones are your controllers.
