Netflix Party

Watch Netflix with your friends with this Chrome Extension that synchronizes what you are watching and lets you chat with your friends during the show or movie. 

Play Video Games with Friends

video games

Video games aren’t just for your kids. Kick them off of Fortnite for a bit so that you can play games with your friends. You need socialization just as much as your kids. Jump online and play a round of video games with your buddies. Act like a kid again and enjoy your free time. 

Teleconferencing with friends and community

Set up Zoom, Facebook or Skype chats with your friends and community. I’m seeing people from a lot of my communities including church, school and meditation groups get together with online chats. This is a great way to keep from being socially isolated. Keep your friends and loved ones close, but not too close during this time. 

Keep checking back to more updates. I’ll keep adding more ideas as I see them. Stay well my friends!
