Ways to Stay Sane, Connected and Uplifted During a Pandemic

This is a confusing, strange and emotional time for everyone – but that’s just it… the coronavirus is impacting each and every one of us. And it’s going to take our innate human grit to work together on making it to the other side.

Here are 10 things you can do to stay positive and engaged while doing your part to curb the coronavirus.

Pick Your Handwashing Jam

Wash your hands your way, with wash your lyrics.

Netflix & Party

Netflix Party synchronizes video playback and adds group chat to your favorite Netflix shows, so you can watch with your friends around the globe!

Donate to Your Local Food Bank

You may be stocked up on soup, but tonight there are many people who no longer have the income to put food on the table. Consider donating to help your community.

Stay Moving

Keep yourself healthy physically and mentally by getting into a home exercise routine. We love these free yoga flows by Rochester studio, YogaVibe.


Do you miss casual conversations with strangers at the coffee shop? QuarantineChat may be for you.

Do Some Spring Cleaning

(Happy first day of Spring!)

Go Outside! (No, really.)

Yes, you can get outside, exercise, go for a walk, and enjoy the new season. You can respect social distancing without staying in all day.

Free Resources for College Students

Many education technology companies have started offering free teaching resources to educators to help with the transition from in-person to online learning.

Free Kids Mindfulness Classes

You can try to keep the craziness to a minimum in your home by introducing your kids to mindfulness with these free classes.

Keep Local Artists & Businesses Afloat

If you have the means, now is a good time to commission something from the artist who just lost their part-time job, buy your favorite album from the musician who had to cancel their tour, and order takeout or buy gift cards from the struggling small businesses in your area.

& most importantly, know we’ll get though this together.
