Making Social Distancing Fun
Social distancing – the biggest buzzword of the week, the month, probably the year. It’s related to COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, and the team at Valley Windows is betting that you’ve heard a thing or two about it. It’s definitely not something to take lightly, but it’s also a great reminder to find the joy in life while remaining safe and comfortable. Valley Windows is no stranger to seeing the silver lining in things. After all, our windows and doors are the necessary ingredient for homes around the area in order to give them a better view. It’s engrained in our personalities to always come to the table with a variety of comprehensive recommendations and all of the information you can possibly need. (Hint, hint – our blog right here!) We know that many are feeling a little bit confused about what the coming weeks hold with COVID-19, but we also know that when you’re equipped with the right facts and advice, every day can be a party.
It all starts with the venue. If your home already has Valley Windows windows and doors, you are ten steps ahead of the rest of the pack. You’ll be able to enjoy a crystal-clear view in a variety of styles and know that your products are durable and long-lasting. These are a great statement piece, no matter if your party at home just has a few people.
Now, on to our other tips that are unrelated to windows and doors. (We swear we DO talk about other things from time to time):
1. Plan a fancy date night with your partner or housemate. It gives you something to look forward to and can be a great alternative to going out to a restaurant when many are temporarily shutting down. You can still take advantage of food delivery services, put on a fun outfit, uncork a bottle of wine and listen to music that you wouldn’t normally listen to.
2. Schedule a digital hangout with your friends or co-workers. Technology is amazing and it’s only getting better. If you can’t be with each other “in real life”, look to FaceTime, Skype or other platforms to still see the faces that mean the most to you. This can be especially valuable if you’re a parent who is seeing limited access or operations at school. Your kids can see their friends and talk about their days – even learning something in the process.
3. Challenge each other to check items off of your to-do list that you simply haven’t gotten around to. That way, you’re accountability buddies. It can be something as simple as a short workout or something as challenging as teaching yourself a whole new language. If someone else knows your goals, you’ll have a much greater incentive to actually accomplish them.
We have a feeling that this won’t be the last type of post like this, but hopefully it reminds you that there are lots of great ways to spend our future weeks!
