Santé Montréal published advice on its website for anyone who may be feeling stressed, worried, or anxious during these times, which goes without saying is a vast majority of us right now. A few of the tips posted included "take time to unwind' and to "connect with loved ones." With this in mind, we made a list of seven online things to do with friends — so you can stay connected while apart.

Conversations can tend to get a little boring these days when questions like "what are you up to?" are being answered with "eating my seventh snack of the day," "wondering when I can have a glass of wine without my cat judging me," or "knowing I am too old for TikTok but that hasn't stopped me from losing four hours of my life on it." 

Thankfully, technology is here to save us with a host of virtual things to do online with friends.

Are you literature fans? Maybe itching to get your karaoke on? Or want to show off your aptitude for random general knowledge?
