It’s a healthy and vital part of growing as a woman, to socialize and be with friends. Recently, we have been limited in the ways in which we can communicate and express ourselves which can easily lead to sluggish activity. We may feel less of a pull to socialize once the lockdowns end this summer, or perhaps you are keen to reconnect. Either way, keeping your social life healthy is key.
There is always a new place to try or you perhaps want to go back to your old hang out once things return to normal, but you must ensure that you return to life as normal in the healthiest way possible. Pace yourself with drinking, because now more than ever we may feel that we should have that extra glass of wine. It is not always easy to avoid those horrible after-effects of drinking too much, either and during a pandemic, keeping on top of your health is vital. You don’t want to be taken to hospital or end up feeling unwell. You wake up the next morning feeling horrible and vowing to never drink again – it is also important to note that you will be removed from any bar or drinking hub if you are behaving drunk or disorderly as it can affect the way in which we social distance. It may be easier said than done, especially as socializing usually requires a little bit of drinking and of course, sometimes overstepping your limits. Now more than ever, responsibility is key.

Eat avocados, pretzels and bananas as these are full of healthy fats. When you go out on a night out, make sure you don’t overspend. Overspending is not good when you’re trying to live on a budget, and this is why you should keep a list and diary to make sure you have budgeted properly, because it is really easy to overspend on a night out in luxury bars and clubs. This way, you keep the money in your purse and it’s there to spend on other activities, perhaps you can save that for a takeaway with the girls. Better yet, you can spend your money on buying some food and having a virtual girls’ cooking class. With an event app, you can look at connecting to the people you love during these difficult times, and you can still hangout online even when you are unable to.
