It’s strange to think that just two months ago, we were celebrating Valentine’s Day. Together with my fellow single friends, I made dinner and danced the night away. We could hug each other, wander to the pub, form a tightly knit queue for pizza, slump on the sofa the next day and binge watch Love Is Blind. We never stopped to think just how lucky we were.
They say you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone. But even now we can still feel connected to each other and to ourselves. I asked Starling staff and customers for their tips on how to feel connected during lockdown. Their recommendations, shared on social media and on Slack, are below.
Staying in touch with friends and family
I have never felt more grateful for technology. Today, we can talk to and see friends and family with the click of a button. There are plenty of platforms out there to use for video calls, many of which have been recommended by Starling customers. Otherwise, stick to good old fashioned phone calls. Just hearing someone else’s voice can make such a difference.
