Wholesome Together: Keep in Touch with Your Community This Season
Winter is coming. As the weather gets colder, the warmth of your bed becomes more and more alluring. Though, there’s more than one way to keep your heart warm, and that is through staying in touch with the wholesome and friendly community around you.
If you’re looking to melt away the lonely winter blues, then it’s time to get out of bed and see what your friends, family, and neighbours are up to! Read on for clever tips on connecting with your community during this winter season.
Check Out Nearby Events
Attending nearby events can be an incredible opportunity to meet new people within your community and share common experiences.
No matter how uneventful a day can be, there is always something happening around you. Attending nearby community events is an excellent way to meet new people who share common interests. These events could feature several fun activities like karaoke, board game parties, and trivia nights.
Not sure where to find these events? An online app called Eventbrite is a great choice for finding out what’s happening around you. You can also filter your search to find events that interest you on a certain day, including ones that are free.
Don’t feel like going the extra distance? There are various virtual events that you can attend from the comfort of your own home. Skyline Living properties across Canada usually host multiple in-person and virtual events throughout the year, so you never have to travel far to spend a wonderful time with members of your community.
Host an Event
Why not bring out your community yourself? Invite your friends, family, and neighbours out to socialize and establish memorable connections.
Take matters into your own hands and host an event yourself! Feel free to invite anybody you’d like, whether it’s friends, family, or neighbours. This event can take many forms, such as a walk around the neighbourhood, a social night at a nearby restaurant/bar, or a movie marathon at your place.
It may be difficult to plan an event by merely messaging people to attend, but Facebook has an event-hosting feature where you can include all the necessary details, such as the place, time, and any other information that your guests need to know. Take a peek at this informative guide on how to use this feature.
If you seek a bigger space for large-scale gatherings, some of our Skyline Living properties have amenity spaces available for tenants that feature a social lounge with TV, billiards room, and/or an outdoor terrace/patio. Please visit the Skyline Living website to learn more.
Help Out Your Community
You have the power to make a positive impact on your community, whether through a selfless act or merely a smile.
Bring out your altruistic side and help the community around you. Spare some change or non-perishable food items to a nearby homeless shelter, volunteer at a charity, or bring a smile to someone’s face with a compliment or a selfless act. Not only will you bring about a positive change to your community, but you may develop meaningful connections with people you meet along the way.
