Things To Do While Social-Distancing

COVID-19 may last longer than anticipated, but here are some things to do while quarantined.

Things To Do While Social-Distancing

Believe me, I don't like self-distancing anymore than you do but it's important to stay healthy and happy during this pandemic. Being away from your friends, work, school, or even family can be tough on our psychological health. It is important to remember to still do things that make us happy, even though we are having a health crisis.

Paint, Get Creative

I know that painting may not be everyones forté, but it has been proven that being creative is a real stress reliever. For me, painting and drawing have always been my go-to when I am stressed about something, or just want to get my mind off of things. Being creative is a good way to get out of your comfort zone and be stress free.


I would't recommend going to the gym during this time, but you can do almost any workout from home. It is important for you not to let your physical health, as well as your mental health, deteriorate. You can also go walking around your neighborhood. Being physically active is always important.

Get Outside

When officials say to distance yourself from others, they don't mean you can't go outside. It is actually important to get some fresh air every once in a while. Walking your dog, washing your car, or even gardening can be a good reason to get out of your house. It isn't healthy to say cooped up in your home for a long period of time, we should all find reasons to get outside.

Catch Up On TV

This time is a better time than any to get caught up on your favorite TV show. I've already started binge watching some new TV shows on Netflix i've been meaning to watch because I never had the time. Netflix also now has "Netflix Party" where you can watch the same thing as your friends at the same time. It is a good way to stay connected with your friends.

Stay Connected

During this time, we must not forget about our friends and family. Be sure to still communicate with those you care about. make sure they are mentally and physically in a good place. Also be sure to check up on your grandparents, it's always important to show love to those who are also affected by the scare of the Coronavirus. Staying connected is a good way to make sure no one feels alone.

These may not be a lot, but I hope I have inspired people to make sure they are physically and mentally in a good place. Together, if we practice social distancing, we can conquer this malicious virus and soon be back to normal.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
