Admit it: not so long ago, you had a bucket list of places where you wanted to go and things you wanted to do. It’s okay; many of us were just the same. But if there is one thing recent events have taught us, it is that what matters most is not where we are, but who we are with. People crave connection, and it is something that is available every day in so many ways.
Gather your favourite people together for a shared activity. Whether it’s a guided hike or a yoga class, you’re creating memories even as you add another layer to your togetherness. Not near your loved ones? Connecting with strangers can also give you a lift; it can be as simple as chatting with farmers about their produce at a market, or striking up a conversation with a passer-by on a bushwalk.
