How To Do It
The pandemic has been hard on all of us. Aside from the obvious problems and concerns about our health, we also deal with a lot of loneliness and isolation. It is in human nature to be around people, and since we can’t quite do it in person as much, we had to adapt to new ways.
This is the perfect time to reach out to friends either old or existing ones. Thankfully, we have the technology, websites, and groups like Charlie Eissa where you can find your friends and reconnect with them easily. Since time is all we have now, you can set up dates, and even do some fun activities together. Dinner dates where you can talk, and get to know each other more, are still a thing. You can cook something in your home, open up a bottle of wine, and enjoy it together online.
It maybe isn’t as good as the real thing, but it will be more than enough. Setting up a specific time of the day, like morning, for example, can become your routine. You can do it over morning coffee, before bed, or while cooking lunch. Talk about the books you have just finished or the series you are starting, share recipes and home workout routines, and you will begin to feel connected again. If you can’t find someone, use Charlie Eissa to reach and contact them, and create a lockdown socializing routine.
Reconnecting during the pandemic can be challenging, but it does not have to be difficult. If you just show a bit of effort, and you have a true desire to do it, it can be so beneficial for your relationship, and your mental health as well.
