Creativity 5 min read Apr 10, 2020

If you’re practically bouncing off the walls right now, know that you’re not alone. We are social animals, after all, and we constantly crave the company of others. Physical distancing can’t be easy.

Reconnecting with your community, even if just on the virtual plane, should help reduce feelings of anxiety or isolation. And what can be better than forming your own tribe, right in the comfort of your own home?

Pick a creative online class that’s right for you and make memories to outlast the quarantine.
