How has your space evolved over the last couple weeks?
Well since being home for so much during quarantine I’ve had the chance to organize my space more and add some personal decorative touches, like art and plants. It’s been quite enjoyable and my space feels warmer.
What have you been creating more space for at home?
Plants and video games! I have like three more plants on the way, I’ve been trying to have a reconciliation with nature since being cooped up inside. It’s been nice to take care of something and have some greenery inside. I also have been giving myself the pleasure of enjoying things that have nothing to do with productivity, simple joys of plant care, games and lounging around.
What is one thing you’re doing to help someone else?
At home I let my parents know that I appreciate them and I also aid in taking care of my younger sibling. I think in times like these, simple thank yous and words of gratefulness to caretakers, loved ones and essential workers can really go a long way. I am also working on bettering my inner self. Taking care of yourselves mentally, emotionally and physically can help give peace within the households that you have to be quarantined in. Along with maintaining your well being, communication with peers near and far is helpful both for you and the person involved. Human connection, empathy and engagement is always important but it’s especially important now, given our present situation.
