Spending some time digging in the dirt has its benefits.  Being outside and planting a garden provides a great opportunity to absorb vitamin D and microorganisms found in soil have been shown to boost happiness and bolster the immune system.

Experience the Arts

For those that love the arts we suggest popping over to the Uffizzi in Italy, traveling through the world's oldest art galleries and discovering the ARt of color in this augmented reality experience. If you are more musically inclined you should check out the Social Distancing festival.

TRAVEL THE WORLD

From the comfort of your living room that is. Thanks to Google street view there are now hundreds of locations all around the world you can virtually explore. We particularly enjoyed the Palace of Versaille, Carnegie Hall, and Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum. And if you're up for it you should head over to the San Diego Zoo or the National Zoo and see what all the animals are up to.
