How are you staying entertained during social distancing? Any new hobbies or pastimes?
I have been running 5 days a week and streaming video games on Twitch. It’s given me a nice outlet to relax and stay connected with friends while being social distanced. It’s also allowed me to learn new skills like video editing and social media engagement.
Anything else you want to add?
I am planning to travel to the MLB all-star game in Atlanta in July, as long as travel is COVID safe.
I am currently reading Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. It gives a unique perspective on human ancestors and goes through the social science of human interaction. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in human evolution.
My favorite podcast lately is The Old Man & the Three. NBA player JJ Redick has a lot of athletes and individuals in sports media on his show. Recently he’s started a segment that focuses on how NBA players are managing their mental health during COVID.
