We talked with our relationship expert, Donny Meacham, who gave some insight on how to handle family right now.
1. Find some 'me time'
It is important to find that time alone away from everyone you have been cooped up with all year. Get out of the house and do something you love whether that is going on a walk, painting or even watching a movie.
Donny says it is important for everyone in the family to get that time to be alone and have that time for yourself! "Family time is important but me time is equally as important," Donny says.
2. Video chat with loved ones
Times like this call for different social interactions. By now, everyone has been on a zoom call or something of the sort for work, school, meetings and so on.
It is just as important to have those zoom calls to catch up with family, friends and people you love.
The face to face interaction doesn't have to be left in the dust because video works just as well. "A facial connection is going to be more special," donny says. "reconnecting with loved ones during this difficult time is going to overall better your mental health."
