“Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.” -Charles Swindoll
Stay happy during these difficult times. I’ve practiced “remote relationships” since returning to Ireland in 2017. Here’s a few ways I stay connected, while social distancing:
Meet up via Google Meet, Zoom or Teams. Besides talking and catching up, there are many virtual board games available on Steam for group interaction. I’ve been lucky to have Settlers of Catan and Talisman games with friends recently... and we really enjoy the camaraderie.
Pick up the phone and call those you are close with. FaceTime is awesome - see your loved ones, chat for hours, for free!
Write letters — who doesn’t enjoy receiving a letter in the mail?
Text those who you love that you are thinking of them.
I’m lucky — I have a quaran“team” – people in my “bubble” limiting social interaction so we can spend time together.
Play D&D! The ultimate escape!
