It is a strange time we are living in, I for one never thought there would be an international pandemic during my lifetime.

During times like this, in times of uncertainty, it is important to prioritize your mental health. Something I have been discussing with my patients in my day job is to find a way to use your time alone constructively. Do something that excites you! Start a new hobby, find a side-hustle, prioritize self-improvement.. the list can be endless if you change your mindset.

Try to think of this time as a unique experience and make it a time you will look back on and have good memories! Here are some ideas I came up with to do alone that prioritize self-improvement and self-care.
