How to Stay Connected during Covid-19 Period?
When the Covid-19 wave came so suddenly and unexpectedly, hitting us and the world, staying connected in our social lives have also abruptly flipped into the virtual world.
However, it is important to have a balance and not neglect our social lives because our emotional and mental well-being is just as important as our physical health. Staying connected can be a major mental support to us, affecting our psychological health.
With the spread of Covid-19, it has pushed society to make do with more online work and online meetups - creating the new norm.
Existing and new online platforms are now the frequent platforms used for meetings, conference and casual meet ups.
To adopt this new lifestyle, some free online video platforms that organizations and individuals have started using during this Covid-19 season are Skype, Google Hangouts, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams – allowing the work and communication to flow and function even despite not being able to meet up face-to-face.
Want to meet up but also want to avoid the crowd? Having online meals together could help you to get the best of both worlds – helping you to stay in touch and catch up with your colleagues and the seemingly long-lost friends during this Covid-19 period.
Set a date, prepare your lunch beforehand or during the video call. You can cook, eat chat while being on the video together. Everyone can show off what they had prepared too, having fun in the process, showing their lifestyle in the conversations.
Sending Welfare Gifts
Little gifts of encouragement during this Covid-19 season can also show that you are thinking and concerned about their well-being.
Gifts doesn’t have to be expensive; it could be just sending them their favourite food or drinks via widely available food delivery app such as Food panda and Grab food. Or, it could be a small gift to encourage and help them through this covid-19 period.
