The havoc of the Coronavirus has spread in this world in such a way that it is difficult to guess what will happen next. People all over the world are forced to stay at home, so they are bound to be bored. Actually we’re attempting ‘physical’ isolation, not ‘social,’ and of course, Social distancing and self-isolation are difficult for many people.
In such a situation, the question arises how we remained connected socially even after making physical distance.
In this article, we can discuss some such things by adopting which we can stay connected socially.
Let’s know what those ways are…
A human being is a social animal who loves to sit and talk with other people but the risk of infection of the virus has increased so much that if people meet, they can become infected. In this situation, the only solution is physical distancing. While following physical distancing, we can stay connected with people socially by call and video conferencing. It will improve your mental health. People who are doing work from home are also resorting to video conferencing and calls to do their work smoothly with the help of various apps like Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.
It is true that virtual communication can not give that satisfying feel as in-person contact, but it is a better way to remain contactless.
Technology has made a huge contribution to removing the loneliness of people. Already, people spend their time on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and WhatsApp. Today their share has increased even more when people are forced to live in their homes. While this virus has eradicated people, technology has brought people closer.
Reconnect with family
In this part of the race life, we had started giving less time to our family, but this virus has also made us understand the importance of family. As we are at home now, we should take it as a positive opportunity that we should enjoy and make life happy. Staying at home, we can also fulfill our hobbies and can also do various activities like… Cooking and eat dinner together, play games and puzzles, gardening, and many more.
Support each other
This is a difficult time and one day we will all be able to get rid of this, but we have to help each other as much as possible so that more people can emerge from it. Today’s environment has definitely ruined people’s lives. In such a situation, positive social support can improve our resilience for coping with stress and positive social interactions(even remotely) can help reduce loneliness.
Find an engaging activity
It is obvious that the same work cannot be done all day. By trying something new, we can make our boredom deaf day better. For this, we have to be creative and it depends on you, how you can make your day better. Some people spend time on calls to keep themselves engrossed, others spend their time in things like cooking and craft. Some people also play indoor games to keep themselves busy and most people spend their time on TV and the Internet.
Virtual classes and events
