IDEAS TO CONNECT
If possible, take time each day to be with your family, for example: try arranging a fixed time to eat dinner together.
Make the most of technology to stay in touch with friends and family. Video chat apps like Skype, Zoom and Face Time are useful, especially if you live far apart
Talk to someone instead of sending an email or texting
Try switching off the TV to talk, or play a game with your friends or family
Ask how someone's weekend was and really listen when they tell you
Write a postcard to someone
Put 5 minutes aside to find out how someone really is
Find an old photo of friends or family and share it with them
Don't use your phone for a day!
Arrange a day out with friends you have not seen for a while
Speak to someone new
Ask your parents or grandparents about their childhood
