Today, it’s challenging to have a great social life.
This was true even before Covid-19 became an issue. We are all different and are responding differently to the current situation. In the not-so-distant past, some people believed that it was boring to stay at home during the evenings and the weekends and looked for an excuse to get out of the house. But now, between streaming services, the internet, smartphones, and video games, it’s much easier to find an excuse to stay home.
Covid-19 has only made the situation even more challenging. Now, there is a legitimate reason to avoid others. While a few select people seem to thrive with very little human contact, most people need to spend time with others to stay emotionally healthy and happy.
Luckily, there are still things you can do to help maintain your emotional health, even when your time with others is reduced.
