Many people are required to quarantine due to work and travel requirements these days, and it can be a really isolating experience. How do you think one can tackle these moments of solitude bordering on loneliness? What has helped you come out of these periods of self-isolation as well-rested as opposed to emotionally frayed?

I would say quarantine has been a blessing to me. What I did was to challenge myself into learning something new, and something totally difficult to learn. But since I had loads of time at my hands, I managed to hack through. I self-taught myself how to play chess and the piano. And I would say it is the most fulfilling thing I have done since the pandemic started way back in early 2020.
I would rank learning something new, or perfecting a hobby as the number one way of beating the quarantine blues. This will immerse your entire being into something that you love, and you will have less time to think of the negatives or to engage in bad habits.
That's solid advice! Learning something new will certainly help people feel a lot better about being home, plus it can also cheer people up! Thank you for your insight.

Listening to music and speaking with friends has really been helpful.
Also, taking up new hobbies can be really liberating as you engage in activities that keep your mind busy.
Music is definitely food for the soul second only to good company! Thank you for your response!

Well, sometimes it's best to just find something to pass the time. Quarantine takes time, and unfortunately you probably won't be able to go out too much. Find stuff to do at home. Maybe play video games, watch your favorite movies and tv shows, listen to music, or study new subjects, read more, etc. There's so much you can do while being stuck in quarantine.
You're right; it is better to be accepting of the situation and then making the most of it! Thank you for your answer!
