Staying connected with your loved ones and friends can be a challenge -- especially in recent months -- and The Doctors share some tips on how to maintain relationships with the people who are important in your life.
For Dr. Andrew Ordon and his wife, he credits their strong friendship for keeping them connected through their ups and downs over the course of their 30-plus years of marriage. "We really try to make the small things a special event," he shares, explaining even something like taking a walk together having a meal, or relaxing while watching TV helps them stay connected.
He also says "listening to each other" plays a big role in helping to keep their relationships strong.
The Doctors share even more tips on how to stay connected with the people in your life, which include:
Handwrite letters and notes - Doing this instead of texting or emailing can provide more texture and emotion to your thoughts.
Join a group - Regularly surrounding yourself with people who have similar interests will ensure you and your loved one will have a group activity to look forward to.
Practice kindness - Taking part in a project that benefits and helps someone in need, for example at a food bank or senior center, will help to foster an emotional connection that can reward the consciousness and heart of everyone involved.
