We all recognize the importance of checking in on loved ones over the holiday season, but as your calendar fills up it can be tough to carve out time. The holiday season is challenging for many people who struggle with isolation, have had a difficult year, or who have recently lost someone. Taking the time to stay connected, send well wishes, and talking to them can go a long way.
If you want to find extra ways to add in self care over the holidays, check out our blog here.
These Applets integrate smart devices and services to make it easy to stay in touch and act as reminders to reach out to the people who matter most.
Set a monthly or weekly notification to call a friend. If you schedule time on your calendar to unwind or go for a walk, use that as a trigger to receive regular reminders.
Send an emails, text, or chat message
It can be just as important to remind others that you are there for them. Send an email when you are in town or use the note widget to send a quick message that will put a smile on someone’s face.
Share articles and photos
Send blogs, articles, or uplifting news pieces to your family to share a little holiday cheer. Or, automatically forward the photos you post to make sure they can share the special moments even if they can’t make it in person.
Go check out the light displays in your city, get tickets for an upcoming concert, or connect over a virtual game night if you can’t be together in person. Creating opportunities to spend time together shows the people in your life that they matter. Have reminders for online game nights, or text someone to let them know you’re on your way.
