Iโ€™ve put together a list of free online resources to hopefully make life at home a little easier. Links include online educational resources for adults and kids, virtual tours of international locations, live cams of nature and wild animals, mindfulness meditation resources, video conferencing and remote work tools, some games and more! I’ll continue to update this list.

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป Working From Home Resources

A lot of people are working from home for the first time. Iโ€™ve dug up a few articles on how-to work-from-home. Most are written by people in the tech industry, as itโ€™s standard protocol for most tech companies.

๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธMental Health + Mindfulness Meditation

Many resources have been popping up in response to the coronavirus to help people deal with the uncertain circumstances and staying at home indefinitely. Nowโ€™s a good time to learn how to be present and lessen future anxiety.ย 

๐ŸƒOnline Entertainment

Broadway, Opera, PBS, and games you can challenge friends to online.

๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ COVID-19 Data

Just added this page to share virus-related data by the numbers. No opinions, political agendas, or conspiracies here (because let’s be honest, is that really useful in a time like this?)- just basic facts and medical information from experts.
