How to Cope Through Social Distancing

I was going to start this blog post with “In these distressing times” but I don’t think I need to give any more attention on how stressful and anxiety-inducing this situation. The coronavirus has caused most of society to take a step back from the normal routines of their daily lives and slow down, something that I feel most people feel that they are incapable of doing. Most of us, by choice or requirement, are self-isolating ourselves in which cabin fever can hit people hard (I went through it during the NYC Transit Strike and it is not pretty).

Social distancing, what may be a scary term, can also be an enlightening and interesting adventure. You can take this time of uncertainty to learn more about yourself. Just ask any of your fellow introverts and to them, social distancing is a blessing in disguise. Even though staying at home is the dream, just being cooped up can cause anyone to go insane.

So if you are trying to keep yourself sane and entertain yourself at the same time, here are some sure-fire ways that will get you through this “period”. They might be mundane, they might not provide the same social stimulation that a bar or a restaurant gives, but instead, you’ll receive intellectual and mind boosting simulation.

How to Make the Most of Your Snow Day

Getting a snow day when we were kids was such a magical day. You get to stay home from school, sleep in late, eat your favorite foods and snacks, and watch your favorite TV shows most of the day.

That doesn’t mean you can make the most out of your spontaneous day off! You can still do your errands and still do fun activities on your snow day! We get so few days off from work…let’s try to make the most of it! Continue reading “How to Make the Most of Your Snow Day”

New Year’s Resolutions

New Year's ResolutionsI don’t make New Year’s resolutions that much. It is not because I don’t keep them, just I never really saw the point to them. However, 2017 was an eye-opening year for me, the good and the bad. For 2018, in order for me to not feel stagnant in my life, New Year’s Resolutions are needed this time around. But, I am not considering them as resolutions, as wisdom, a new perspective on my life. Continue reading “New Year’s Resolutions”

Weekly Tea Discussion: Choosing Hobbies Over Work

Books_Cups_Grass_Tea_Cup

I took a short vacation this past week and a half and although I didn’t leave New York, a nice staycation was just what the doctor ordered. I read, I wrote, I visited places that either were for the first time or a place I haven’t been to in a long time. The past few months I have been extremely stressed and my anxiety being at high measures. This little reprieve allowed me to recharge and get back in the swing of things.
