We humans always know how to approach the worst of catastrophe with optimistic approaches, good spirits, and pragmatic solutions and alternatives. The world, amidst the widespread fear of Coronavirus, is adopting ways to keep up physical as well as mental wellness on the right track. One of the most helpful and effective ways to keep the virus from spreading is ‘social distancing’ and ‘self-quarantine’.
Social distancing and Self Quarantine are terms we all have been seeing rising to the surface since the time Coronavirus has touched almost every country in the world. These terms are rather new to us youngsters, so let’s try to understand them a little more in detail.
So what is Social Distancing?
It is a practice adopted by authoritative bodies to keep the spread of infection in check. Social distancing occurs when major events, functions, shows, etc are cancelled to draw away the crowds. Social distancing also means that individuals willingly choose to avoid going to public places, especially crowded ones, to steer clear of viruses and infections.
Now, what is Self Quarantine?
In simple words, self-quarantine is self-isolation. It’s the practice of disconnecting yourself from the outside world as much as possible. This basically means that you just lock yourself in a room. This practice must, however, be adopted only when you stand a certain chance of catching or carrying symptoms of the virus. This is an extreme step and is in most cases suggested by doctors.
Given the situation the world is currently undergoing, the governments of all nations have suggested people undertake social distancing as a precautionary step to protect themselves from Coronavirus. Welcoming this suggestion, many have cancelled their work trips (but obviously), are working from hope and are carrying out their daily routine in different ways than usual.
Out of the many many people who are practising social distancing, are our celebs who have made this practice a rather cool one and they seem to be totally enjoying it. We must take lessons from them because they sure are doing the whole social distancing thing right.
Let’s have a look

She has shown us that health and hygiene come first. She is one actress who willingly steps forward to create awareness about the things that count as important, and this is one of that. Let’s follow her footsteps
Since we all have got loads of free time, something productive must be done. What’s more productive than cleaning your wardrobe which your mum has been telling you to do for a year now. Our lady has indeed done some real productive work during the time of social distancing.
We are so busy running behind building a life that the only quality time we get to spend with our family is during festivals. Now, in times like these, you must spend as much time as you can with your close family. The video posted by Ayushmann Khurana spending time with his wife and kids has all our hearts melting. What are you waiting for?
Now that we are all sitting at home, let’s just simply appreciate the beauty and magic of nature, because celebs are surely doing it!
OR! You can just dance your heart out! There is nothing better than dancing is there?
You can also reconnect with your furry friend and it the love it was longing for since a long long time!
Understanding our social responsibility is the most important in such challenging times. So as Brandon rightly says through his Instagram caption, we must practice social distancing not just to protect ourselves but also for the betterment of our entire community, society, nation, world and effectively for our existence.
It’s a matter of some more time before things fall back to normal. The more we remain precautious and careful, the better. Stay indoors as much as you can and maintain basic hygiene. The process of surfacing through this difficult time will become little speedier. We owe it to ourselves.
