Keeping in Touch Shouldn’t Be a Burden

Keeping in Touch Shouldn’t Be a Burden

After graduating, leaving the country for a job or to be with the one you love, relocating to another country there comes a time when it’s no longer possible to just take a bus and have a drink with friends after work or see your grandparents on holidays. While there are more ways you can stay connected, it’s always easier to just pick up the phone and dial. Way easier than social media. However, it’s often quite expensive to do so. Subscribe Now.

Being far away does not mean that you can’t stay close. It just means you have to take a little bit of a different approach. Here are two things you need to consider when connecting with your long-distance friends and family. Subscribe Now.

  1. Optimize Your Phone Calls

Picking up the phone sounds obvious enough, but when your job, family, S.O., new friends, classes, and errands are filling up your every minute, it can feel almost impossible to spend an hour chatting with your pals. Subscribe Now.

So, if you find yourself strapped for time, weekly or bimonthly conference calls are a great answer. Set a standing date—like every Tuesday night or the last Sunday of the month—and catch up with your five closest friends all at once. Or try conference calling 2.0: the Google Hangout. Unlike Skype and Facetime, you can chat with up to 10 people at a time. You can also watch YouTube videos together, share docs, or even wear and laugh at silly hats. (Or, grab mimosas and have a virtual brunch!) Subscribe Now.

And while group calls are ideal for close-knit groups, and for events like birthdays, wedding planning, and when you have major news to share—sometimes you need the old-fashioned one-on-one calls, too. Even if that means talking once a month instead of every week, you’ll feel more connected when you keep up these calls. If it’s hard to find time after work, try to squeeze them in on your commute or while going for a walk. Subscribe Now.

  1. Find a Way to Make Cheaper Calls

Making calls is the easiest way stay in contact yet often the most expensive. However, there are ways to get around the cost. Using your local service provider equipped with a roaming plan is still going to turn out relatively expensive.
