To take extra precaution, it’s significant to stay indoors at all times- both to avoid getting sick and to avoid infecting others. However, for some people, staying indoors can be specifically challenging. Whether you’re a natural extrovert or not, some individuals depend on distractions such as going outside to deal with their thoughts.
By staying indoors, you’re forced to be with your thoughts, on a daily basis with your only means of distractions being Netflix, video games, social media and books. It can be a challenge to stay sane, amidst the coronavirus quarantine, however there are still some ways you can keep both your sanity and your safety.
