Whilst for a good number, the challenges of lockdown might be rooted in living alone in isolation, for many, they have the fortune of being in a household with other people. Regardless of your living situation, there are always ways to connect, both in person, and online.
Research has shown that connection is very natural to us as human beings. We resonate with others. For example, when somebody close to you walks into a room, we internally mirror them, we recognise their feelings and take them on internally – whether that be through a smile or a frown. And these days, picking up on these physical and emotional queues are also possible virtually! As socially connected beings, this is an instinctive trait we often do without even realising.
Today, is therefore, about cherishing and making time for the people we can connect with at home and online.
