How To Survive And Thrive During Quarantine

1. Stay Home

Stay at home unless you are grabbing takeout food, going grocery shopping, caring for loved ones, or getting medical treatment.


2. Stay Connected

Stay connected with friends, co-workers, and family by sending texts, chatting on the phone, or talking over video chat. It's easy to feel lonely when you're stuck at home, but you can do things to prevent feeling isolated. Use Google Duo, Zoom, Facetime, Skype, Discord, Whatsapp and Marco Polo to connect and catch up with friends and family.


3. Stay Active

While spending so much time indoors, it's important that you still move your body daily and get your heart pumping. Try an at-home workout, do some yoga, go for a run around the block, whatever it may be to get your body going to avoid feeling sluggish. Try out an at-home workout by browsing Youtube or the web. Go for a walk around the neighborhood or bike to a local park in your town.


4. Stay Healthy

Eat nutritious and wholesome foods to keep your mind, body and soul healthy. Keeping your immune system up is crucial during an uncertain time like this. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, grains and drink all the water. There are tons of grocery delivery services that are available depending on your location. Try Instacart, Shipt, Amazon Prime Now, Peapod, Fresh Direct – just to name a few.


5. Stay Positive

As challenging as it may be to keep a positive mentality during this time, it's important that you don't let negative thinking take over. Remember that this is only temporary.


6. Stay Busy

Use all this free time to pick up a new hobby such as painting, knitting, writing, drawing, sewing, etc. Dig out the old craft kit and keep your mind and body busy.


7. Stay Updated

It is important to keep yourself educated and update yourself on the latest COVID-19 news. It is also important that you limit and monitor how often you consume media and which media outlets you trust to provide accurate information.
