If quarantined, keep yourself occupied

Thousands of Americans are now believed to be in self-quarantine.

That includes one New York couple isolating themselves at home after a man at their synagogue was diagnosed with coronavirus and was hospitalized in critical condition.

Despite being stuck at home, they’re showing how keeping yourself occupied can make the situation a little bit easier.

Ellin Heilman told Inside Edition she is coping by tending to her garden, organizing her house, catching up on reading and doing yoga. She and her husband Samuel also made a light-hearted video for their grandchildren showing Ellin pretending to escape from the home.

Lifestyle expert Trae Bodge told Inside Edition said that those quarantined can tackle projects on their to-do lists.

“It’s a good time to organize your basement, it’s a good time to iron your clothes or do some sewing projects,” Bodge said. “Things like that to keep you busy would be great especially if you’re home for two to three weeks.”

She adds that it’s also important to keep your home clean and sanitized.
