Strong relationships are important to your happiness and a healthy life.
This last year, many have felt alone and lonely. We’ve been apart from family, friends and co-workers.
As we continue navigating a global pandemic, it is crucial to identify how to strengthen relationships even from afar.
The need for human connection perhaps has never been as important to our mental health as it is now. Adults and kids need their peers, eye contact and physical proximity. In the absence of that, making efforts to video chat, listen to someone’s voice, send pictures and handwritten letters can truly help. It reminds those we care about that they matter. That they are important and thought about. Even if we can’t all hug yet, we can make sure we are caring and expressing affection in other ways.
