Activities To Do From Home During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Being in isolation can take a toll on our mental health. We can lose our sense of independence, connectedness, and efficiency.


Maintaining these components of mental health can still happen from home. Here is a list of activities that you can do as a family, as a couple, or on your own!
