While the COVID-19 pandemic led to so many people being kept apart, it also brought many people closer together than they have been. During difficult times is when you need your loved ones the most and all over the world, there are incredible stories of human beings going above and beyond to show their loving and caring side during the challenges of lockdown.
Being romantic and showing that you care during lockdown doesn’t have to mean a massive, outward, showcase of emotions. In fact, sometimes it can be the smallest, most simple things that really show the people that we love, how much we care about them. During the lockdowns, being there has never been more important and people found a range of creative ways to spread the love throughout the Coronavirus crisis.
Let’s take a look at just a few ways that people have been keeping love alive during lockdown.
Online services have become more efficient than ever as more consumers embrace shopping online and more companies turn to eCommerce solutions to meet their customer’s needs. This has made it easier for people to send gifts, big and small, to show their loved ones that they are thinking of them during COVID. Services such as flower delivery in South Yarra have become increasingly popular as more consumers look for ways to show their love to those they are not physically close to.
Whether you are catching up with family and friends to show them you care or you are at the beginning of a relationship, a Zoom date is a great way to spend some meaningful time together. To make your time together a little more fun, why not play an online game together, organise a quiz or share old photos you’ve discovered on your phone during lockdown? Spending time together, even virtually, is a great way to spread the love when you can’t be there in person with those that you care about.
Picking Up The Phone
There are so many different ways for us to keep in contact that sometimes simply picking up the phone and making a call is overlooked. An impromptu call to check in on a friend or family member, or to catch up with your significant other to tell them you are thinking about them will always be appreciated. A simple phone call might seem insignificant but it is much more meaningful than liking a social media post and shows that you are willing to really make time for the important people in your life.
Listening And Being There
There’s no better way to show those that you care about that you love and appreciate them than being there for them. The COVID-19 pandemic has been very difficult for a lot of people and offering your support can go a long way to making someone feel cared for, valued and loved. Whether it’s listening to your loved one’s problems with compassion or helping someone with something they are struggling with, going the extra mile for the people you care with will let them know that you love them and care about them.
Let Love And Compassion Continue To Flow Post-COVID
The Coronavirus crisis turned the world upside down and it’s not over yet. During these uncertain times, we all need to be there for each other and make the extra effort to show the people we care about that we are there for them. Showing that you care can be as simple as picking up the phone and saying hello or listening when someone needs you. As we move closer to the post-COVID era, we need to learn to appreciate all that we lost through the pandemic and let love and our compassion for one another grow as we prepare for the “new norm” post-COVID.
