Social distancing may not be everyone’s personal favorite, but my entire life has led to this.
Don’t get me wrong. I am outgoing. I can be very loud. I even love hosting parties of somewhere between twelve to fourteen people. But I’m still very much an introvert. It just takes me thirteen thousand bajillion trillion times as long to decompress and recoup from things.
However, I’m related by lots of blood to lots outgoing extroverts and have made them watch A LOT of movies with me. Mostly during one of my M. Night Shyamalan-a-thons.
And I have learned SO MANY THINGS about myself and my self’s love of social distance. Now, I pass those savings on to you:
Here is everything I need to know about social distancing for anyone who may not love being home, alone, in the dark as much as I do.
It is VERY okay to NOT watch news.
It’s okay dress to the nines even if no one else is home. I don’t have to stay in pajamas. I will, but I don’t have to.
Getting creative in the kitchen is a fun way to spend an hour.
Hydration is key.
There’s room for so many activities indoors.
It’s okay to reach out for support if I’m scared, hungry, happy, avoiding manufactured terrors, or bored.
It’s okay if I can’t even.
If alphabetizing my spice cabinet by height is wrong I don’t want to be right. You heard me.
‘Alone’ does not mean lonely.
It’s never too soon to update social media profiles.
Social distancing is a great time to explore those unfamiliar corners of your home.
There’s nothing like Quality Fresh Air Outdoors Fun Time. As long as you stay home.
