Hey Neighbor! Ways To Be More Connected and Less Isolated
It feels like the world has turned upside down these days. If you're like me, you are trying to figure out how to work from home, manage the kids who are out of school, make changes to keep my business going, and find ways to support our community.
Neighborhoods are more important now than ever. We are all stuck at home together, but many people feel more isolated.
Isn't it incredible that in the hustle and bustle of our usual lives, we often don't even know the people who live on our block! Maybe this is an opportunity to create stronger neighborhoods. There are things you can do to connect with those around you while still respecting "social distancing."
If you have a home owners association or neighborhood organization, reach out to the leadership, who likely have contact information for the neighborhood. Maybe you even have a directory of your neighbors.
If your neighborhood doesn't have a Facebook Group, start one! The teenagers can probably help with this and get the word out to each other (and the parents too!). It's a great place to stay connected and post updates, questions, requests, etc...
Make time to call people in your neighborhood or contacts list. Being quarantined at home, a simple phone call can make a huge difference to someone. And you too! Aren't you craving real conversations? Although we don't use them in this way the majority of the time, that's what our phones are designed for!
Challenging circumstances call for creative solutions. What can you do that brings people together, without actually bringing people together!?
Spring has officially started! One idea is to do a Spring Flower Scavenger Hunt.
Use your communication platforms to set a date and encourage moms and kids to make a Spring Flower art project and hang it in a window or by the front door. Then, on the appointed day, kids and families can walk around (respecting social distancing, of course) and see how many spring flowers they can find in the windows.
What other creative ideas and solutions can you think of?
If we can help, let us know. Our agents are out and about in the community, and we are happy to be supportive in whatever way we can.
Let's stick together!
