Explore the evolving list of resources our team has curated from across the interweb, sorted into 6 categories below. Enjoy!
Stay Listening | Podcasts
We’re more thankful than ever to be living in the golden age of podcasting at a time like this. Being cooped up at home is the perfect opportunity to not only listen more but to absorb the great content being broadcast into your ears. So without further ado, here is a list of engaging podcast recommendations that might spark your interest during this quarantine.
Stay Entertained | Movies, Music & Performing Arts
As social distancing becomes the new norm, artists around the world are exploring ways to engage their audiences through virtual special events and live streaming platforms. If you’ve already reached the end of Netflix and are bored of 7-minute Quibi episodes, we’ve got you covered. Check out our list of movies and performances that will help to fight boredom and keep you entertained while staying home. Hopefully, these can bring a little bit of joy into your daily life!
Stay Comfy | Fashion
Given that we’re not going to parties, IRL events or dates at all, you probably don’t feel the need to dress up every day. Just because we aren’t going out doesn’t mean our sense of style goes out the window. These days, it’s all about being comfy and casual with our attire. We’ve curated a list of fashion resources that could just inspire you to experiment with new clothing trends and refresh your fashion sense.
Stay Fueled | Food
More time at home means more time in the kitchen — or at least, more time thinking about what to eat next. In the midst of self-quarantining, now is the perfect time to enhance your cooking skills or learn a new recipe. Although we miss the luxury of dining-in, local restaurants are currently in need of our support more than ever before. So whether it’s home-cooked meals or takeout delivery, here is a list of food-related resources that will help you stay fueled through a variety of meals during this quarantine (and no, coffee doesn’t count as a meal).
Stay Cool | Health, Happiness & Random
Your wellbeing should never be overlooked, and in the midst of a global pandemic, we need to check in with ourselves more often. Don’t let boredom get the best of you. We’re sharing this assortment of resources with the sole purpose of keeping our minds healthy and happy.
Stay Sharp | Education & Learning
Now is the perfect time to explore areas you may not have had a chance to. Why not take this opportunity to broaden your noggin? Before you know it, the world will start spinning again and when that happens, you’ll be ready to take advantage of any new opportunities that come your way. Here are a few of our favourite learning platforms and content. Who knows, you might even fall in love with these skills so much that you decide to pursue them way past the quarantine.
Though the changes related to COVID-19 have significantly impacted the lives of everyone around us, we hope that by sharing resources like this, we can provide some inspiration and a glimpse of hope for our fellow creatives across the country.
With that said, stay home and stay inspired.
