It's day 32 of quarantine.
Yes, I've been in isolation for roughly a month now.
Today might be your 5th OR 98th day.
Quarantine for you might mean:
I go to work with a skeletal staff and back home
I go out daily for food, exercise and other activities, but practice social distancing
I only go out for groceries
I'm locked in my room away from the rest of my family
I'm in the hospital and trying to recover
I'm home all day every day
Whichever one you are, it's okay.
It won't last.
I'm not here to focus on fear. I'm here to promote love and radiate wellness and healing. I want you to get through this time, and though we are apart, we can get through this TOGETHER.
To do this we have to keep our minds occupied. Our bodies too.
So whether you've just started your quarantine period or you've exhausted your options of 'What to do' with your unlimited time, HERE LIES...

See what I've been doing during my quarantine life:
We have all the time on our hands now.
We needed it. We were granted it. Don't waste it.
Be productive (whether it be for work, for your business, for your health, for your mental well-being, for your relationships)
