Color!Remember those adult coloring books that were popular a few years ago? Bring ’em out! Coloring can be a great stress reliever, and it will help pass the time in a productive way. Plus, you’ll have some new art to hang on the fridge!
Start a journal or blogJournaling is another great stress reliever. It can help you work through your thoughts to write them down. This could also be such a significant moment in history that future generations will be thankful to have your notes from this time!

Writing blogs can still help you organize your own thoughts, and it could even help other people during this time.
