Stephanie's Social Distancing Survival Tips
Mandatory quarantine or not, here’s what you can do to keep your family safe and entertained at home this winter
1. Gather the Goods
Of course board games, snacks and baking supplies seem like no-brainers for a successful quarantine. However, Stephanie says not to overlook self-care items, even for your kids. For example, she made sure to pack nail polish and hair accessories so her girls could pamper themselves.
2. Do Things You Normally Don’t Have Time to Do
According to Stephanie, this doesn’t have to mean painting your cabinets or learning a second language. Instead, devote your time to doing enjoyable activities that aren’t necessarily productive.
3. Give Everyone Some Grace
“I kept having to remind myself that it was okay for my kids to not be learning every single second,” Stephanie says. “I had to relax and just let things be, and I allowed my kids to do what they wanted for the most part.”
4. Get a Change of Scenery, Even for Just a Few Days
Although you might not have a family cabin to whisk away to, there are other ways to safely social distance in an inspiring setting. Thanks to Airbnb’s new cleaning protocol for hosts, finding a remote and safe place to lounge for a weekend might be easier than you think.
