When it comes to a group chat, it can be difficult to find something to keep the conversation going in this pandemic. This is even more so since you aren’t able to go out as much as you would like to and need to adjust to life in quarantine.

Social isolation can take its toll on your mental health that’s why it’s important to stay connected to family and friends.

Here are some topic ideas to use in your group chat to get the conversation going. This way you can stay connected with your family and friends during this challenging time.

1 ‘How’s everyone feeling?’

When you hold in your feelings they may start to consume you. That’s why talking to your family and friends about feelings is important. You can learn from them the methods of how they are coping. They also may become a healthy support system which will help when you need to deal with feelings of anxiety and depression.

2. Suggest a movie night

Engaging in a group activity with your group chat is a great way to liven things up. How about suggesting a movie night? Watching a movie together will get the conversation going on the characters, the plot and the film’s eye candy.

3. ‘What are you grateful for?’

It can be difficult to stay positive when you are faced with a pandemic and the future appears to be bleak. However, this simple question can really trigger off a lot of good feelings in a group chat.

Ask each other what you are grateful for and you may re-discover the things you are lucky to have in your life. It also can deepen your emotional level of connection with your friends.

4. ‘What’s the first thing you will do when lockdown ends?’

If you’ve been dreaming about what you will do once the lockdown ends, chances are your friends have been doing the same thing. Share your fantasies with them and ask them about theirs.

Talking about what you are looking forward to is a sure way to start a fun conversation. It’s a bit like the question: “What would you do if you won the Lotto?”

5. ‘What’s on your playlist?’

This is the perfect time to explore new music and artists. Ask your friends to send you their music suggestions and do the same for them. Sharing your playlists will help you to understand their tastes in music and start an epic discussion in the process.

With so much tragedy in the news today it can be difficult to connect positively with friends and family. Use the above tips to inspire light-hearted conversations in a group chat and to evoke deeper connections with your loved ones.
