I hope everyone is social distancing, reading this is at home, snuggled up somewhere enjoying hours of Netflix, Pinterest scrolling, and feel-good Instagram accounts.
While I hope you are all doing well, despite the uncertain times we are all experiencing, I know many people are truly suffering during this time.
My heart goes out to everyone who is having many more issues than those of us who are just bored sitting inside.

I thought it would be helpful to put together a list of my top 10 posts that will be helpful, inspiring, and fun to read during these crazy times!
I’ll go over my best posts that cover self care tips, coping mechanisms, and just fun things to do while you’re at home.
So, let’s get into the blogs!
