Talking to your housemates all day, every day, will mean that conversation runs dry fast. While you can't physically see other people, there are plenty of ways to stay in touch with those outside your home. What's more, it's healthy to socialise with others during this period.
"I personally don't like the terminology 'social distancing.' We are social people and socialisation is important for our mental well-being. I prefer the term 'physical distancing' and encourage people to still remain social," said Dr. Jones.
"Thankfully, there are so many options available thanks to the internet and our smartphones. FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, whichever option you like, use it! If you are unable to be with your significant other, set up a video date night, eat together, and enjoy a movie. If you are single and have been so busy that you haven't been able to find a partner, now is a time to spend time on dating apps and websites."
