We are social creatures. So it's no surprise that quarantine fatigue has begun to set in, even as experts caution that social distancing recommendations will remain in place for months to come. (With a vaccine even further away.)

Here are quick tips to lessen the isolation you may be feeling:

  1. Don't scroll, but do connect online, with real-time activities
  2. Making art is a social act: express yourself and share
  3. Reach out to the elderly
  4. Become a citizen-scholar, an online tutor or assistant to the visually impaired: Find your way to volunteer, virtually
  5. Keep friendships alive, with small acts of kindness
