With everything surrounding the coronavirus, people around the world have been practicing social distancing for several months now. Unfortunately, it’s easy to get stressed out and feel lonely during these times. The good news is is that there are a lot of ways to keep yourself entertained and social that don’t involve leaving your house. These tips will help get you through the pandemic that’s sweeping our world.

Establish Boundaries

While you may love spending time with your other half, being at home together 24/7 can ignite irritation. If you’re both working remotely, make sure you have your own personal space. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for alone time when you need it.


Have a Netflix Party

We wrote about it in another article, but in case you missed it, back in March, Google Chrome has added an extension called Netflix Party that allows you to watch programs on Netflix at the same time as family and friends without being in the same house.


Schedule Virtual Dates

Take a break by video chatting with your friends and family with tools like Zoom, Google Hangouts, and Skype. Staying connected and knowing you’re not alone is important during these times.

Workout at Home

If you’re new to working out at home, YouTube is a great place to start as there are a plethora of workout videos available. Also, many gyms are streaming classes online, so they’re really something out there for everyone.
