Getting Back to Socialising

on 5 August 2021 0

Our second instalment in partnership with RAMH takes a look at getting back to socialising.

It’s ok to feel nervous about going back out socialising. It’s ok to feel uncertain about what you feel comfortable with. With so much information about what to do and not to do it can be overwhelming.

  • Take your time – don’t feel rushed into socialising, but recognise that putting it off is only a temporary way to cope with feelings of anxiety about meeting people again
  • Be informed. If you know what to expect if you’re meeting friends at a restaurant for lunch then check out their website, or give them a call, to see what they’re asking patrons to accommodate to comply with local covid regulations. 
  • Remember that it’s been a hard time for those working in hospitality too. They are just as anxious about things opening up again as you are. 
  • It might feel weird after so long to be out with people around you. They feel the same. It will take time for people to get used to being out and about again. Kindness and patience will help make it easier for us all.
  • Use online and community-based resources to access help and support.
