With a little creativity, you can still find ways to share a meal with loved ones, even if you’re home alone. Contact a friend, family member or group and share the recipe you’re about to make, encouraging them to give it a try as well. Once you’ve made your meal, video chat with them and enjoy your creations together, comparing notes on the food and your experience making it. If you’re at home with your family, use the meal as an opportunity to connect with each other and talk about something other than the daily grind. A great conversation starter could be having everyone list one thing they’re grateful for or one thing they’re proud they accomplished that day or week.
Adapting our routines gives us the ability to practice positive productivity and wellness during these uncertain times. And maintaining a healthy routine when it comes to mealtime will keep our minds and bodies well.
