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

Find an old photo of friends or family and share it with them

Put 5 minutes aside to find out how someone really is

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

Try something new!
