Backstage: TLM Social Distancing Survival Guide

As we navigate this new way of life together, we’re staying home — working remotely and embracing the comfort of what we know. Our team is staying in and adjusting by finding creative and safe entertainment as they practice social distancing. Here is our team’s social distancing survival guide. 

STAY CREATIVE

Online creative outlets are perfect for spending quality time with family and friends or practicing self-care. From learning how to decorate a cake to navigating a digital design program, there are endless creative choices. Diving into your imagination and creative side is a great form of stress relief. 

STAY ACTIVE

Your fitness studio or gym may be closed, but that doesn’t mean your daily routine has to stop. Check online if your fitness classes are available online. Not only will you continue staying active, but you’re also supporting your favorite studios and instructors. 

Also don’t forget to get some fresh air by taking a walk, going for a run, or riding your bike through your neighborhood, if safe and able.

STAY SOCIAL

Our team has been safely connecting with friends, family, and one another through video calls, conference lines, and social media. We encourage staying connected with loved ones by having video dates, dinners, or game nights.  

STAY ENTERTAINED

Virtual Tours 

You do not have to fly to Paris to visit the Louvre. Visit all your favorite museums online. 

Podcasts

Listening to informative, comedic, or wellness-themed podcasts helps our team maintain a positive mindset.  

Books

Donation or Volunteer Opportunities

As we stay in, we want to continue making a positive impact in our community by donating, volunteering, and helping in the best possible way for those most vulnerable. 

Donate an assorted box of Homeboy Bakery treats to a healthcare professional. With your added contribution, you are not only supporting individuals at Homeboy Industries and The Little Market’s global community, but also local workers on the front line of this pandemic.
