Technology is wonderful, isn’t it? We have so many more options to keeping connected over the holidays than ever before! While staying in touch with family and friends is important year-round, we all feel that pull to get a little closer during this season, don’t you agree?
Keeping connected requires a great plan. You don’t want to spend hours chatting with your great-uncle Johnny only to find out that you’ve gone WAY over your minutes! Or worse, receive 500 pictures of your way-to-cute-for-words niece and discover that, WHOA, you’ve obliterated your data plan!
The WIND Mobile Cross-Canada Plan is definitely the way to go! It is a REAL unlimited data/voice/text plan with NO hidden fees and no contract. WIND Mobile’s plan is totally transparent. NO surprises, because surprises that come wrapped in pretty paper are great. Surprises on your phone bill? Not so much! Oh, and by the way, you get ALL THAT for $44 a month!
Kimberly Moffit, a renowned relationship therapist, has some great tips on keeping connected over the holidays, whether you’re heading to relatives houses for the big day or staying at home. Check them out!
Tips for Keeping Connected over the Holidays
Here are three fun and festive tips from Kimberly Moffit to better stay in contact with your loved ones this holiday season:
- Make Board Games Digital – You may have grown up playing board games with your family in front of a fireplace, but what to do when everyone lives across the country? Try different activities that can be done online like putting together a family album over Flickr or playing video “board games” like online Word Feud. You can even play remote games on systems such as Xbox Live. Playing games as a family is fun and can increase your sense of closeness during the holidays.
- Skype, Text and Call to Your Heart’s Content: Just Make Sure You Have a Plan: Nothing’s worse than coming home to an overpriced phone bill in the New Year. Get a great plan this holiday so you can feel comfortable knowing that you’re spending quality time without breaking the bank. For example, WIND Mobile has a Cross-Canada plan that gives you the freedom to use your phone and stay connected anywhere across the country.
- Write Homemade Christmas Cards – In our digital age of phones and email, there’s something to be said about being on the receiving end of a non-digital form of communication. Hand writing a letter or card might take time but makes a lasting and heartfelt impression.
