Self Isolation can be tough and not speaking to friends for three weeks or longer is even tougher!

With technology being pretty advanced right now, you've got no excuse but just incase you're at a loss, we've come up with a few nifty ways on how to stay connected with your loved ones.

Take a look:

FaceTime

If you're an Apple phone kinda person, FaceTime is the one for you. If you've got somebody saved as a contact you can call whenever you want!

Looking for an upgrade? With TOTUM get an iPhone 11 for £36 a month, or at the apple store save up to 10% on Mac Save, up to 5% on iPad Save , up to 20% on Apple Care and save up to 10% on accessories.

Phone calls

Take it back to the old school and make use of those unlimited minutes you've got on your mobile.

This way you don't have to make yourself look half decent. In case you haven't got unlimited minutes, it's time to get a new contract pal.

TOTUM members get 20% student discount when you take out a mobile phone plan with EE, so maybe it's time to get an upgrade?

Send an E-mail.

Remember those things? Call me old fashioned, but I love an e-mail - especially when it's not spam from a newsletter I signed up for when I was about 13...

You could tell the recipient about your day inside and whether you've actually managed to stick to your homework out schedule you created for yourself.

With TOTUM and Dell you can save 5% on Inspiron laptops, so you can send that perfect e-mail to your bestie

Share music

If you want to talk to somebody but you're worried you won't have things to talk about, share music on apps like Amazon and Spotify.

As a TOTUM member, users can get 50% off a monthly Spotify subscription. If that offer doesn't tickle your fancy, Amazon is currently giving away a month of free Amazon Music.

With both of these options, you can listen and share music with friends which will surely give you something to natter about.

Check your broadband connection

To do all of these things via the internet, you'll need to check whether you've got a good Wi-fi connection.

BT's Openreach has reported a 20% surge in internet use, which means we're putting a lot of pressure on broadband providers, which in turn could slow down your connection if it's not strong enough.
