In the midst of Corona, many of us find ourselves staying home a great deal more, and while it may seem minor compared to other concerns, it can be a real challenge to continue to socialize and connect with others while maintaining the physical distance recommended by many medical professionals.
Granted, there are many computer and console games with a strong online environment, and there are systems like Facebook and Discord, and the option to talk on the phone or text, but I think in some cases what really helps is finding ways to recreate some aspects of the activities we used to engage in regularly.
For me, three things come to mind:
- Round table discussions
- Watching movies & shows with friends
- Playing board/card/dice games together
Here are my thoughts on each of them.
