Social Distancing is Not Social Isolation- Tips to keep the Party Spirit High in tough times
Practicing Social Distancing is to maintain 6 feet distance from individuals, but this distance does not need to disturb one’s social and emotional health. Social Isolation has a direct unhealthy impact on one’s emotional health. In the dark and uncertain times the past year has brought with it, it is easy to confuse Social Isolation, and Social Distancing as the concept of Social Distancing is a new addition to our lives.
To make sure the two concepts do not overlap or are not confused, we have to be creative to maintain our social lives while maintaining a distance from one another. Humans are social animals, and we must interact with other humans to maintain our well-being and sanity.
How to follow social distancing without social isolation
Let’s take a look at some interesting methods to maintain social distancing and not Social Isolation.
Maintaining Your Primary Connections
Make sure you maintain strong connections with the primary members of your social life. Members of your daily life- parents, family, and friends should be kept in the close loop through a virtual connection to maintain one’s social health. In a Global Pandemic, maintaining connections with your loved ones is the only way to go by each day.
Participating in online games and virtual events is always an excellent method to keep in touch and entertain. A glass of your favorite wine is the best way to complement these virtual times with your loved ones. Enhance this unique wine experience as you embark on these online endeavors with our wine accessories collection to back you up.
Go Minimalistic for Social Gatherings
Since the world has opened up minimally post the national lockdowns seen in multiple countries, people have started moving out of their houses to meet up with family and friends. Gatherings of 4-5 people with adequate social distancing maintained can do very good to one’s mind and mood. However, all members of the gathering should ensure they are in the pink of health with no symptoms to enjoy this moment themself and allow the others to do so. A small gathering over a Sunday brunch with close family or friends would be the perfect set up.
