Tips for providing ongoing support for someone going through a tough time

If someone you care about is struggling through difficult times, showing up with consistency is a beautiful way to be there for them. Here are three tips for offering ongoing support.

  • Set reminders in Sunny, or on your calendar, to check in on them.
  • When you connect, focus primarily on listening rather than listening and responding.
  • It’s OK to ask them how you can best support them. But, even if they are still determining what they need, asking them shows you are putting their needs first.
