How to Be There for People Who Are Social Distancing on Their Own

Social distancing is much easier when you’re sharing your home with your family members, partner, or roommates, but not everyone is lucky enough to have some company. Some people are forced to isolate on their own, and here’s how you can provide them with the support they need.

Regular Chats

Being in quarantine on your own can get super-lonely, so make sure to be there for people who are in this position. Reach out to them, see if they want to talk to pass the time, and try to keep the conversation light and focus on the positive stories.

Shared Activities

Even when you’re not video chatting with your loved ones who are isolating alone, there are still many things you can do together. Watch a show or read a book that you’re going to discuss later, or consider doing your workout together.

Care Packages

Even if you can’t see your friends and family in person, you can still send random gifts their way. Prepare a care package that contains their favorite snacks or spa day essentials, and we’re sure it will put a smile on their face.
