With the world on a standstill, people are just learning to cope with the isolation that is required to combat this pandemic. For most people, this is a very confusing period, since they aren’t used to having so much free time on their hands. Many are also struggling to cope with mental health issues due to isolation. Luckily, our local celebs are pouring their social media with ideas to keep busy during this unusual time.
Here are some that are nailing their own versions of quarantine diaries!

What started as an innocent one-time live session, has turned into our daily dose of calm.
