Be with your family, learn with your children if they are home schooling, learn a new skill, read a book that you've been putting off, reach out to a friend who you've been meaning to call, start a garden, clean out a closet, etc. In Psycology Today, Dr. Kenneth Miller discusses the psychological price tag of social distancing in his article, "Let's Aim for Physical Rather Than Social Distancing". Among a number of adverse health effects of social isolation, Miller advocates for 'physical distancing' as social distancing can be extremely toxic to the human body for a variety of reasons.
