We are all missing someone right now whether it’s friends, family members, or S.O. There are ways we can still support them and stay in touch with them. While we continue social distancing here are our favorite ways to stay in touch.
1. Send More Than Just a Simple Text
This could be a meme, funny Youtube video, or a funny Tiktok, gifs, pictures, or posts that made you think of them. A simple text asking how their day went goes a long way too.
2. Send Them a Letter
Write a letter to send them some happy mail and show you care.
3. Facetime Often
Facetime them often and try one of the apps where you can both watch a movie or show together. It could also be fun to Facetime while you each go on a walk or cook dinner separately.
4. Send Them Old Videos or Photos of You Together
Share your favorite memories of the two of you together with old photos or videos.
5. Ask About the Details
Most of our days right now are pretty much the same and asking about the little details really shows you care.
6. Send Them a Book in the Mail
This is something I recently did with my college roommates. Since our semester was cut short we have been sending each other books and letters. I have also sent a couple of friends who I miss cards with pictures of us in them to cheer them up.
7. Leave Bake Goods in Their Mailbox
If you have been baking a lot like myself recently, if they live close enough, drop off some baked goods in their mailbox. Having a surprising pizza delivered would be a nice surprise too.
8. Tell Them You Love Them
This one is the simplest, but can go very far and mean a lot.
I hope these gave you some new ideas to stay in touch with those who mean the most during this difficult time.
