In the situations which we are in right now, the most important thing is to survive. Social distancing is the only way we can stop the spread of this virus. Human species came a tick closer; we are just 100 seconds closer to midnight (the doomsday clock). It is an individual responsibility to live and let others live. This (Social Distancing) is the most sensible thing to do.
Staying at home, we may easily get bored. Boredom starts to shadow our lives. There is no control on what life throws at us. But, what we make out of it is completely our choice. The time we have right now, we can either make use of this in the most magnificent way possible, or we could just sit on the couch, netflix and chill ,and let the days pass.
After this thing is over, we can either become a completely transformed being or just be the older version.
So what are the things you can do during this time? What are the sources? What are the various options?
