Connecting can be hard.
Whether you’re maintaining existing connections or building new ones.
How do you connect with your family and friends?
When moving into a new community, maintaining existing connections with your friends and family as well as building new ones is important. Moving somewhere new can be isolating. Whether you’re on your own or with your significant other. Humans are, generally speaking, social creatures. That’s why our nature is to seek out interaction and connection.
So once you’re all settled into your new apartment at The Reserve, why not visit one of the amenities designed for social interactions and meet your new neighbours. Whether you use the communal BBQ facilities, the heated indoor pool, the gym or the Social Centre, there will definitely be someone to interact with.
How do you find new connections with those around you? Here are some ways that we have found can work well:
- Puzzles can be a great way to spend time with someone. Whether you prefer crosswords or sudoku, your neighbours are sure to share a passion for some sort of puzzle.
- Exercise is a great connector. If you’re going for a walk around Winnacott Reserve or working up a sweat in the gym, some company might make all that effort seem slightly more effortless.
- Music is an international language. Share your favourite tunes with your neighbours and friends and listen to theirs. Learn about why they love it and you may find yourself partial to a new genre.
- Languages can be a lovely thing to share. Does a neighbour speak another language? Can they they teach you a little?
- Hobbies and passions are better shared. Whether you’re a bookworm, an avid gardener or a voracious knitter, there’s bound to be someone else with as much passion for your craft as you. Share a project, start a club or instigate some friendly competition.
It’s also important to stay connected with your family and with technology’s advances, it’s such a fantastic way to connect. If you Facetime, Zoom, Skype or like sending your grandkids emojis, don’t forget about your existing friends whilst you’re busy making new ones.
