3 Fun Ideas to Keep You In-Touch With Long-Distance Loved Ones

by David Thomas 08/15/2022

Most of us are fairly accustomed to using long-distance technologies. But did you know you can use those same long-distance technologies to do more than communicate with the office? Here are 3 excellently entertaining ways to stay in-touch with your loved ones while having a blast.

Virtual Tea/Coffee

Having a warm cup of tea or coffee with loved ones sounds like a well-deserved bout of relaxation for most. Unfortunately, whatever the circumstance, sometimes we don’t get the opportunity. This is where long-distance virtual morning hangouts could come into play.

Set your coffee pot or tea kettle to brew a fresh pot of your favorite. Have a designated time in the morning picked out, maybe even the usual time that you would meet up. Then load your preferred platform and let the good times pour in.

Virtual Book Club

There is an allure to chatting about shared interests. Book clubs are a great way to add a little structure to that conversation. They’re also an astounding way to hang out with several close loved ones at once. Hosting a virtual book club is no different.

Send a mass text or email with a few books from everyone’s list. Vote on which to read and have fun setting up times each week (or more frequently) to have a nice, relaxing chat about your book choice while catching up on some much-deserved time spent together.

Virtual Game Night

Virtual game nights have come a long way. Where we were once stuck with a limited amount of options, it seems the world of collaborative gaming has opened up. With some platforms offering a hefty library of tabletop game simulations and ways to connect with a group of people, the options are nearly endless.

Game nights also seem to run better when you have two designated machines. These can be tablets and cell phones or laptops and webcams. Just be sure to have one device for the game itself so you don’t lose out on any performance between video chatting software and the game.
