That being said, we as humans are the masters of adaptation. I can personally attest to the strides we've made to safely see each other again. I've been a part of drive-by birthday parties, seen social-distancing cocktail hour in the neighborhood streets, and had a coffee date in a shopping plaza parking lot six feet away from my bestie. These socially distanced gatherings are our new reality, and adapting to the safe and responsible way of hanging out can be vital to your mental health and well-being.
Before you go calling up your friends to hit the town, it's important to learn how to safely hang out by following all the recommended safety guidelines. The first thing to always keep in mind is that six foot distance that you always need to maintain between yourself and those around you. Just like any other time that you plan on coming into contact with others, remember to wear a mask! You're also going to want to meet others in an open air space. A nice open area outdoors is going to not only give you that space that you need to maintain a safe distance, but you'll also be in a space that will provide you clean and fresh air. You also spent so long reigniting that love for the outdoors, why not keep that love alive?
