#30Seconds Chat: Supporting Each Other Through Coronavirus Quarantine & Social Distancing

We know we’re safe at home and doing our part to help stop the spread of coronavirus, but social distancing and quarantine can be stressful. Some of us are not working or lost our jobs, thrown into the world of working from home, homeschooling kids, cooking more than we ever have, spending more time with our spouses, upset by the stats and COVID-19 news … All of this can be overwhelming, but we are all in this together and need to support each other.

Q. Are you homeschooling? How's it going? Any tips to share??

Q. How are you staying healthy and keeping fit?

Q. How are you handling your stress and anxiety? How about your kids' anxiety?

Q. How do you think the pandemic is being handled? Do you think it's time to make some changes or are you staying at home for the long haul?

Q. Are you going out at all? Are you wearing masks? Using hand sanitizer?

We hear you and we are with you. Please stay connected. We are all in this together!

Hey everyone! So excited to chat with you tonight. Just a quick update that the time for the chat tonight is 9 p.m. CT (10 p.m. ET, 7 p.m. PT), not our usual time. We thought we would try an hour later (not 8 p.m. CT as usual) because of the extenuating circumstances. So we will see you on Twitter at 9 p.m. CT tonight!
