Social distancing and connecting in Palm Beach County can still be a challenge even with less stringent social distancing restrictions.There are still plenty of ways to stay connected to friends, family, and coworkers, even while practicing responsible social distancing. Some people are loners and do not mind keeping others at arm’s length. However, the vast majority of us find isolation challenging. Here are a few of the things you can use to keep your sanity by staying connected.

Virtual Book Club

If you long to connect with people who are interested in similar things as you, then you should consider joining a virtual book club. Book clubs are an excellent way to meet new people and learn about fantastic books that you can enjoy. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of book clubs online for you to explore. You can pick the club that matches your interests. Reading is a great way to stimulate your brain and relax your body. There are still plenty of ways to stay connected to friends, family, and coworkers, even while practicing responsible social distancing. Here are a few of the things you can use to keep your sanity by staying connected while in isolation.

Netflix Party

Most people love to Netflix and chill. However, it is always better when you have someone that you can watch a new series or movie with rather than alone. You can now hook up to a Netflix party and make isolation seem less boring. Netflix Party is a chrome extension that allows you to watch movies in real time with your friends. After installing it through the Chrome Web Store, start watching a movie or show like normal. Then click on the small ‘NP’. You will see a URL to share with whoever you want to join.

 

Marco Polo App

Marco Polo lets you talk to your friends through video chat — but it is not live. Their push-to-talk feature creates a sort of digital walkie talkie where you leave someone a video, or ‘Polo’, and they watch it whenever they get the chance. This app is for people who want to see their loved ones’ faces, they want to hear what they are up to, but they might not have the time to sit there and video chat.

 

HouseParty

You may have already heard of this one. It has become the app to have while in isolation. Houseparty lets you video chat with up to 8 people and is incredibly simple to jump into. The main menu is a default display of your front-facing camera. Swipe up to see your friends list and if you do not have any, you can add them by name, through contacts, Facebook or just send them the link.
