Are you working from home, home-schooling, or looking for an alternative to binging TV or the news?
I put together a longer list of free online resources to hopefully make life at home a little easier back in March 2020. 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’ve edited this page in March 2022, as people are starting to return to the office.
Please contact me with any questions, link issues, or other resources.

👩🏻💻 Work-From-Home Resources
Are you attempting to navigate the world of remote work? I’ve dug up a few articles on how-to work-from-home. Most have been written by people in the tech industry.
🧘🏻♀️Mental Health + Mindfulness Meditation
Many free mental health resources have been popping up in response to the pandemic. Now is definitely a great time to learn how to be present and lessen future anxiety. My recommendation – try mindfulness meditation for just 5 minutes a day.
Everyone knows about Netflix, Hulu, and Disney streaming services, but how about trying something a little different to entertain you and yours while safe at home? Try watching Opera for the first time! Or playing games with family virtually!
