Things to do while social distancing
Practicing social distancing and staying at home can become really repetitive and boring. Here are some things you can do during the quarantine!
- Pick up a new hobby or revisit an old one.
Have you always wanted to learn how to draw? Haven't touched that instrument since high school? Use this time to learn new skills or enhance the skills you already have.
With gyms being closed across the country, it can be difficult to find the motivation to keep your body moving. Take a walk outside, turn up the music and dance in your living room, or follow your favorite athlete's home workout routine. Find a form of exercise you like and stick to it! There are so many resources online to keep yourself healthy while you’re staying at home.

- Coordinate a video call with your loved ones and friends.
Being away from your friends and loved ones can be very lonely. Apps like Zoom, Google Hangouts, and FaceTime make it easier to communicate with them and make this quarantine not feel as lonely. Message your friends to plan a time to have a call. Play online games, watch a movie or have a dance party. Be creative with it and have fun!
- Meditate or start journaling.
Self-care is super important, especially through these times. Remember to take some time away from social media and your phone. Reflect on your thoughts and write them down. Enjoy the time you have with yourself and let it lead you to more self-discovery.
