Together Time: Staying Connected with Friends and Family is Easier Than Ever
Throughout the years and across the miles, we sometimes lose touch with the people we hold dear. Maintaining relationships takes time and effort from both parties—an act that’s often challenged by busy schedules and long distances. This month, make it a priority to touch base with a family member or reconnect with an old friend, using our three tips for staying connected.
1. Re-Learn the Lost Art of Letter Writing
When is the last time you received a letter in the mail? Revive the art of letter writing by breaking out the ol’ pen and paper and crafting a heartfelt note—just because! Not only will you have an excuse to purchase new stationary, but you’ll have a lovely keepsake account of conversations with your kin.
2. Video Calls Are Like Being There.
Advances in communication like “Facetime” make it possible for you to chat with family and friends “face to face.” Video calling on smart phones, tablets, email platforms and more might not be the same as seeing your cross-country bestie in person, but it is definitely the next best thing.
3. Every Picture Tells a Story. Share them.
Nowadays, it’s effortless to share pictures and videos with each other in real time, so we can all live in the moment with one another. It’s such an amazing time we live in. Whether we’re 10 miles or 10 thousand miles away, three states or three continents away, we are more connected than ever before.
