It would also be a good time to try out other things on TV like comedy, YouTube channels, documentaries or other things other than what you’re typically used to.

Move in with a Friend: Well, you don’t necessarily have to pack all your stuff and move out of your home; you however can spend weekends with a friend and even some weekdays especially if you live alone. Being able to chat, gist and laugh with someone is therapeutic.
