Being quarantined isn’t fun at all whatsoever, as we’ve all probably realized just after a few short hours of beginning self-isolation.
I’ve lost count of how long it’s been at this point.

A word on learning to value yourself as more than your work during quarantine from Shut Up & Go Traveler Jo Franco.
A few essential self-care activities to that’ll help you to do everything you can to stay positive.

Stay safe and STAY HOME!
