How to Show Love During Tough Times
As social distancing rules continue, we understand how you could be losing your patience about seeing your friends and family. Here are some tips on how to show love to the important people in your life during this time.
Stay close to your loved ones at home.
We totally understand. It’s difficult to be stuck in a house with the same people for a long period of time. However, do not let this break down your relationships that matter the most. Instead, find fun ways to spend time together in the house. The options are endless! Have a movie night with homemade snacks, build a fort, cook dinner together, or even create a mini at-home vacation with decorations and props. To keep the relationships you need in quarantine, you need to show a little extra love and effort.
Check in on your distant relatives and family.
Considering it may be hard to hop on a plane and see your far-away family right now, it’s important to take time out of your day to reach out and check in. Your family may be feeling lonely at this time as well, and we guarantee it would make their day if you called to chat about the good things in life! Wouldn’t you want them to do the same thing for you?
Host a socially-distant event.
If you have friends and family that live close to you, coordinate an event where you can see each other six feet apart. This can be a spaced out picnic, cook out, or simply just sitting in a circle of chairs and catching up. You could even do a Zoom happy hour! We get it, and it can be totally hard to not want to give your friends and family hugs right now, but seeing each other’s faces in person can make it feel so much more real than seeing them on a screen. As always, make sure to follow CDC guidelines during your get together.
Send a thoughtful gift with a letter.
Nothing is more thoughtful than a gift made with love and intention. Missing someone dearly? Send them a gift and letter to let them know you’re thinking about them. Instead of sending a text filled with your thoughts and feelings, write it all down on paper and toss it in the mail. It’s such a personal way to feel closer to someone.
