10 Fun and Creative Ways to Stay Connected While in Coronavirus Quarantine

Staying connected is more important than ever right now. On top of the anxiety and stress we’re already feeling, quarantine can also feel very isolating and lonely. Social connection is so important for our mental health. Although we’re physically apart from one another, we can still stay connected and let our loved ones know we’re thinking of them. Here are 10 fun and creative ways to stay connected while in Coronavirus quarantine.

Bonus! Participating in many of these activities will also help support small business owners during a difficult time. Win, win!

3. Start a Virtual Book Club

Grab a couple friends and pick some great books to read together! Set a “deadline” for finishing the book and then jump on the phone, text or a zoom call to talk about it. Consider purchasing the books from your local independent bookstores rather than Amazon.
