It can be hard to stay in touch with loved ones during a pandemic. Here’s how you can communicate virtually and have fun with friends and family from home!
If you have a smartphone, tablet, or a computer with a webcam, you will be able to call your loved ones and reunite. Make sure that you have a strong internet connection so that you can talk and listen clearly without any delay or glitches.
Virtual Dinner Party
Maybe you want your catch-up to be sophisticated; a virtual dinner party will achieve this! Cook a delicious meal and eat with your friends as you chat and bond over food. Perhaps you could even swap recipes that you have been loving during the lockdown. Bon appetit!
Special Occasions Online
If you have a big celebration coming up, you should consider streaming the event virtually. From birthdays to weddings, people worldwide have used video conferencing applications to share their special moments with the ones they love most. Using virtual utilities to collect cash gifts or include friends and family as an audience, the internet is a great way to enhance an important get-together and make your guests feel involved.
Online quizzes with friends and family have been a popular trend since last year. Gather some loved ones and take turns hosting a quiz night! Why not choose topics special to you and your friends and make it an evening to remember?
We don’t always have aligned schedules with our friends, but there are ways to get around this issue. Record and send a thoughtful video or audio message to your friend and let them know you are thinking of them. Whether it is a long video or a short voice note, they will appreciate the effort and want to return the favour.
Never underestimate the power of texting! Send a caring or funny message to your friend and brighten their day. If you come across an online clip or image you think they would like, share it with them! It’s so easy and is an effective way to maintain good relationships.
