50 Kindness Quotes For Kids To Use When They Are Quarantined At Home

Use being cooped up at home due to coronavirus as an opportunity to teach them kindness.

Nurturing kindness within children and making sure they learn to have empathy and respect for others — these important lessons start at home. As the parents, teachers and family of children, we should instill these qualities in our youth as much as possible to ensure that they spread love and kindness into the world. Especially now, during the coronavirus pandemic — when tensions and anxieties are high.

In today’s society, we are quick to judge others and we lack the respect of our elders, women and even children. When our youth are exposed to these behaviors, though, they begin to adapt to them and mimick them. So now, more than ever before as the majority of the world is at home in quarantine as we wait out the virus, we parents are who need to lead by example so the children in our lives can apply the positive attributes they are exposed to and eventually they will carry those into society.

To start teaching children what it means to be kind, take a look below at four routines you can incorporate into your kids’ daily schedules while they are spending time at home:

1. Be kind, smile and mind your manners.

It is a great idea to get children in the habit of smiling and expressing themselves in a positive and kind way. Remind them that having something nice to say to others are a good way to spread love around. You can remind them to smile and thank you for holding the door open for them, or to thank you for making lunch or snack.

2. Know when to say something nice, and when not to say anything at all.

Like the old saying, if you can’t say anything nice then don’t say anything at all. Sometimes holding your tongue is the best way to avoid conflict, so encourage your kids to get into the habit of saying nice things to each other, and when they are upset, backing away from the situation (rather than fighting).

3. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Remind your child that if they do something to someone that they do not like, it is not a good feeling — it might help them to try to imagine how that same situation would …

50 Relationship Quotes To Help You Make It Through Quarantine Together

Living room fort anyone?

Relationships are the best thing since sliced bread. With billions of people on this rotating rock we call home, it is an almost impossible notion to think there is one person out there who was made for us. One person to laugh with, one person to cry with, one person to travel the world with, forever.

The wait for that special someone to appear in your life can seem like a dreaded million years. Once the moment comes, you will least expect it! Finding your “one” is a long process for a reason. Spending the rest of your life with one person seems scary, but if you have the right person by your side, it will be an awfully fun adventure.

In the wake of the Coronavirus, a respiratory virus that has infected more than 500,000 across the globe, many countries have implemented rules of staying at home for days and weeks on end.

Social distancing regulations are in effect as millions of people are staying home to contain the virus from spreading.

These are very uneasy times for everyone around the world, and what’s worse is trying to find peace in staying home for 24 hours a day. Tensions in the household may rise when you and your partner are cooped up for so long together. Yes, these are the ones who you want to spend forever with, but you didn’t think it’d hit you this hard, huh?

Both of you might want to rip each other’s arms off by the end of this quarantine, but know that this too shall pass. Do not let fear or worry creep into your homes. Spend this time getting to know one another once more, and give each other the space you both deserve.

50 Quotes About Fashion To Keep You Stylish While You Work From Home

Just because you work from home doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable.

Spring is finally here, and usually, that would mean we see lots of new and upcoming trends — but due to the coronavirus COVID-19, many of us are holed up at home in quarantine. But luckily for us, the internet and social media have become a great place for people to share style inspiration and outfit ideas for both work and leisure — and now that you’re working from home, it’s a better time than ever to experiment with some new work styles that are both comfortable and functional.

Despite this, many trends have made people ditch their own creative style in order to fit in and get online likes. The sad truth is that everyone has the potential to be stylish, but when we feel pressure to imitate whatever is considered mainstream, we become cookie cutters.

This has been going on for so long that many people no longer have relationships with the clothes they wear and more of an obsession with what other people think. When this happens, trends become tacky and unoriginal. After that, the trend dies, and the cycle continues.

Individualism plays a huge role in fashion because that is what has created the biggest most influential fashion houses we see today. It’s all about breaking the rules and putting your own personal signature to what you wear. There’s nothing wrong with being inspired by others or wanting to incorporate something new into your wardrobe. However, it’s important to remember the most important factor in your style — your individuality.

The golden rule in fashion is that there are no rules. So if you’re feeling like your lacking some fashion inspiration while you work from home, check out our collection of the best quotes about fashion to keep you inspired when you’re trying out new styles this Spring.

​​1. Be yourself.

“Just be true to yourself, and listen as much as one is able to to other people whose opinions you respect and look up to but in the end it has to come from you.” — Anna Wintour

2. Simplicity is a statement.

“I like things simple.” — Valentino Garavani

3. Be unforgettable.

“Give me time and I’ll give you a revolution.” — Alexander McQueen

4. Stay humble.

“We must never confuse elegance with snobbery.” — Yves Saint Laurent

5. Style is essential.

50 Inspirational Quotes To Look To For Positivity During a Crisis

Looking to a few inspirational quotes during a crisis can get your head back in the right place.

It’s okay to be afraid while staying positive, and if you look to some inspirational quotes during a crisis, they can help you get your head in the right place.

Right now a lot of us are worried about the coronavirus pandemic, scared to be exposed to COVID-19, and quarantined to our houses for months on end.

To say we’re feeling hopeless right now is an understatement. But hopeless or not, there are ways to bring positivity back into your life, no matter your situation.

If someone always smiles and posts positive Instagram photos all the time, it makes others wonder if they’re human, right? Having a ‘business as usual’ attitude defeats personal relationships with others, so holding back the way we’re feeling can create an emotional numbness. Especially on social media.

When we express total abundance, then we forget about scarcity sneaking upon us. Even if a crisis isn’t in the same location as ours, it’s important we recognize the world as one. Identifying danger or scarcity expresses attentiveness to others as a nation and our community.

Wondering how you can strengthen your positivity during a crisis when you’re feeling stuck in your emotions?

First, it’s important to stay connected with family and loved ones. Building on the relationships that mean the most to us gives us something to always look forward to, as well as provides a support system that many of us will need to rely on when things get tough.

Next, try exercising — moving your body in some way. Especially if you’re quarantined at home for months on end, exercising in our homes builds our immune system, and it’s one of the healthiest activities to work through our anxieties.

Finally, find peace in your feelings and learn how to deal with your emotions in a positive way. YouTube is a great resource to look up motivational videos to help get you through difficult times. I recommend listening to Alan Watts, Eric Thompson, Les Brown, or Simon Sinek to pull through on sharing positive messages.

Meditation and yoga also help foster positive emotions, by focusing on the important aspect of life and self-care, so if you’re not so much into working up a sweat, use your time at home to focus on yourself and finding balance in your …

40 Positive Quotes To Live By During Coronavirus Quarantine

We need to stay positive despite the negative world issues around us.

I think we can all agree that being in quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic sucks. There are so few things good about it, especially during this devastating time. Obviously, it’s important to abide by stay-at-home rules because we risk putting others’ lives in jeopardy if we don’t follow the guidelines put in place. However, things can start to get really boring if you’re stuck inside week after week with no sure answer as to when this all will be over.

I guess if you’re an introvert, quarantine at home is really nothing new for you. In fact, it might be worse for you because now you’re not just alone at home, your family, loved ones and roommates are all there all the time too. So really this situation isn’t ideal for anyone.

There are so many different creative things that people are doing to keep themselves busy. It’s cool to see people get creative with their time — makes me wish I owned my own house to paint an accent wall or redo the decorations, too.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on the perspective you look at it with) I’m not very bored. With the quarantine, I have time to work on my internship in the morning and work for my part-time job every evening, so I’m pretty occupied. I actually find myself wishing I had more spare time to just relax and read my book or watch TV. But I can understand how that could get tiresome fast.

If you’re bored or frustrated during quarantine, it’s as good a time as any to catch up on journaling or finishing up that book you never got all the way through — or maybe try your hand at a few puzzles. This is also a good time to test everyone’s creativity to see how good they are at coming up with things to do to keep themselves occupied.

My sister said to me the other day, “aren’t you glad you don’t have a boyfriend during quarantine because then you wouldn’t be able to see him?” I told her immediately, “No, you can bet your buns if I had a partner, I’d for sure force him to be quarantined with me.” So, ladies, if you’ve got a guy, love that boo and enjoy your quarantine together — and if you can’t …

What Is Tao? + 13 Quotes From Eastern Philosophy To Help You Cope With Coronavirus Anxiety

As they say, do the Tao now.

Many of us have turned to spiritual books and meditational practices in order to cope with the unrelenting stress that our present COVID-19 situation gives us. With nothing but time on our hands, we’re home and we’re starting to grow bored.

Yes, it’s fun to pretend this is one big Netflix-Hulu-Prime Marathon of the Gods, but the truth is, we’re nervous, and television entertainment is only acting as a band-aid, a temporary suture for our fear and depression.

I have been a student of Eastern philosophy for my entire life, and though I’m not a religious person, I do dabble in the practices that give me peace and lift me up. I’ve lived in an ashram where I studied yoga and pranayama, the practice of breathing; read all the books by Alan Watts on Zen Buddhism; grew up with Paganism and Witchcraft; learned the ways of High Magick, tantra and mantra meditation.

It was always hard for me to walk the Abrahamic paths, and Western religions left me cold. Of all the paths I’ve walked, the one that works best for me is the Tao. And it is the Tao that is getting me through the crisis.

What is the Tao?

It is the way, the path, the road. It is the natural order of the universe. It is nature.

The Tao, pronounced “dow,” is a mysterious concept, not able to be fully known, but intuited, felt. The Tao is the universe, and our awareness of it as infinite, perfect and eternally nameless. The study of the Tao is called Taoism.

How can the Tao help you get through the Coronavirus crisis?

When we align ourselves with the Tao, we are in full acceptance of nature and her ways. It is the moment we know in our heart that what is happening at any given moment is both part of the plan and as it should be, no matter what is occurring.

This may feel uncomfortable at first, but when we know ourselves as part of the ever flowing universal energy, we fear nothing and accept all. We become bigger than our limited understanding of this terrifying virus. We become at peace with all things.

The wisdom of the Tao is brought to us by the enlightened being named Lao Tzu, who gave us the magnificent manuscript entitled Tao te Ching: The Book

60 Funny Coronavirus Memes To Help You Stop Panicking Over This Worldwide Pandemic

You better be washing those hands!

As cases of the coronavirus — aka COVID-19 — have surfaced worldwide and governments around the world are taking steps to prevent (or at least limit) the spread of the virus, the best thing you can do is to ensure that you take you to care of your body and hygiene by washing your hands properly. If you cannot get to a bathroom or sink, keep hand sanitizer near you like you would your wallet. That is, if you can find any hand sanitizer (this, along with hundreds of other household items are inconveniently sold out in stores all across the nation as people panic and grab more than they need. Naturally.)

There have been many people questioning the symptoms of this infection and the severity of it. According to the cdc.gov, “common virus that causes an infection in your nose, sinuses, or upper throat”. But in some cases, symptoms of the coronavirus can become severe in some immunocompromised patients and can lead to pneumonia, breathing difficulties … and even death.

The effects of this pandemic have reached all points of the globe, and at this point, businesses, schools and large events across the country are canceling and postponing their activities indefinitely until further notice. Huge sports organizations such as the NBA and MLB have followed suit.

People would normally be ecstatic about having the opportunity to take time off from work or school to spend time with their families, but things are looking more and more serious by the minute, with the government urging us to stay in our homes, avoid large crowds, and generally self-quarantine to be safe from the spread of the illness. When we start to think about the children who look forward to eating school breakfast and lunch during school come the end of Spring break, we begin to hope that we find a cure for COVID-19 sooner, rather than later.

Also with the thought about traveling, now we’re talking about how risking infection to experience life and planned vacations can be sad and overwhelming.

Social media has mixed emotions regarding the outbreak. There are funny memes and videos that make you laugh so you won’t think about the severity of this outbreak, and others that make you think twice about opening your doors or going to your office — or even shopping at your local grocery store.

But …

Bible verses to learn during this COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed at times. When you feel like things are spiraling out of control you need an encouraging word to bring back your peace of mind.

Perhaps you’re feeling overwhelmed or confused about the recent world pandemic COVID-19?

If so, you are not alone. Coronavirus has impacted our lives across the globe in an interesting, yet frightening way.

We are more isolated by social distancing from one another and the fear of contracting this virus is real.

We have all had to uproar and change our lives within these last few months to ensure our health is protected.

As with anything in life, we all need encouragement, perhaps an encouraging verse from the Bible.

Encouragement found in scripture helps to give that extra motivation that helps us push through the worst times in our lives.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, prayers and reading the Bible will give us even more strength and encouragement to continue and to believe that this will all end soon.

We all want answers to why this is happening. We want to know when we will find a cure to save lives before more are lost.

But if we continue to encourage and help each other by applying to tools and information given to us by our governments, this too shall pass.

As we adjust to this new reality that we are facing, hearing words of hope and inspiration can help us feel more empowered.

As we adjust to the new norm of social distancing, words of encouragement and motivation will keep you in a peaceful mindset.

What are some of the struggles that you have endured during this recent outbreak? What are some of the feelings and emotions you have regarding the COVID-19 pandemic?

I know for me, I am hopeful that we will find a solution that will end this current world tragedy as soon as possible.

I am afraid of the lives of the human race — for all people, regardless of the country they are from.

I believe that this will impact lives to believe that life is short. When we finally do return to our regularly scheduled programs, I hope that people will begin to spread love and not hate.

Hopefully, we will be too busy enjoying the simple things in life that we have been deprived of during the COVID-19 …
