A tip for everyone who’s currently quarantined like me:
Indulge in self-care.
Keep your hair clean and tidy,
Don’t stay in your pajamas all day,
Wear something extra comfy but make sure you feel good about yourself.
The thing is, it’s easy to spiral into depression
When you’re stuck at home and start neglecting yourself.
Please use this free time that ya’ll have wisely.
Use your time to read,
To meditate, to get connected with your religion,
To do an at-home hobby.
Please do not be unproductive.
You can’t worry about things you can’t control,
But you can make the best out of it.
