April Obsessions: Current Favorites to Pass the Time Indoors

Hello all and happy April!

I decided to take a different approach to this month’s “Obsessions” blog post by sharing what I’m currently loving to pass the time indoors. Featured are some of my favorite books and TV shows in a range of genres, some treats I’ve been loving to add interest to my day, and a slew of indoor activities you can do by yourself or with a roommate. I’ve also included articles focused on social distancing – from date night ideas to mental health resources to fun activities to confronting the obligation to be “productive” – and I hope you find them useful!
