What are your best tips for staying sane while social distancing?

As more and more events are getting canceled, it's starting to feel like there's nothing to look forward to. What have you been doing to keep your spirits up?

The tips from experts (you can read the CDC's here) generally include taking breaks from the news, keeping a routine, exercising, picking up hobbies, and virtually chatting with loved ones. For me specifically, virtual book club has been my personal savior. Having something to read and people to keep me accountable, plus having a reason to take really overkill notes on what I'm reading, plus having a virtual meeting to look forward to has all been really helpful.

For me, being mindful of how much news I consume is key. I try to limit my information sources to only the most trustworthy, limit the number of timesI check them daily, and accept that it's not always going to bring me news that I like. If I'm not careful, I'll find myself constantly checking multiple sources, often getting conflicting or simply worrying information, and my day starts to revolve around it (and my mental health suffers). The National Alliance on Mental Illness has more about responsibly consuming news during this time here.

I think having a daily routine really helps you to get motivated to go through the day. Also, having a positive mindset and try to look at this situation from a brighter perspective might helps too. If you are being quarantined with your family or your loved ones at home, use this opportunity to rekindle and strengthen your bonds. If you are alone then use this time to try out the hobbies you have long been wanting to do or revisit the hobbies you left. Writing a journal really helps too in pouring out every worries and wild thoughts in your mind and help you think more clearly. Also for me, having video call with friends and families or playing online games with them is the best part of my day haha

Hope everyone is healthy and covered with joy anywhere you are :)
