This pandemic is going to be a tough time for us wherever we are. The goal of this topic is to suggest and discuss coping mechanisms to get us through this. I expect it to primarily focus on mental health but could also include physical health, diet and exercise, hygiene, recipes, shopping tips, techniques for working from home, how to keep yourself or your kids entertained, and more. Venting related to the above topics is encouraged!
Try to avoid: infection/death statistics, violence, politics, etc.
