Top 50 Ways to Cope During the Coronavirus Pandemic

By: The Unsettled Team

The world is experiencing a global uneasiness as many of us have entered into unprecedented period of self isolation and social distancing.

While so many of us are cooped up in the confines of our own home, the far reach of the internet and what’s available at the click of a button is expanding (hopefully along with our compassion and awareness of universal humanity, but let’s start with the internet :))
