. . . And Connect
While we are spending more time in close proximity, we may not be connecting with one another. Try slowing down, putting away your phone, and connecting by:
- Using your schedule to build in connection points throughout the day.
- Leveraging mealtimes and bedtime as natural connection points.
- Practicing shared deep breathing as described above.
Pro Tip: Friends, grandparents, and other relatives can be a great source of virtual support. Grandparents, especially, may enjoy scheduling some virtual “me” time with their grandchildren.
