The Social Stylate team wants to take a moment to send our love and support to our clients and community. Things might be anything but normal right now, but as Fred Rogers said, “Look for the helpers.” There are so many people out there who are generously offering their skills and services virtually while we’re spending time at home. Whether it’s a tour of a museum, free meditation classes, or access to Broadway shows, people and companies are really stepping up to help one another during this time of social distancing.
Take a look at some of our favorites right now!
Go to a concert
The Metropolitan Opera is streaming opera performances each evening, look for your favorite artists to see if they’ve released anything new, and check in with Gal Gadot for some star-studded karaoke, no balcony necessary!
Meditation at your fingertips
Take a deep breath in, deep breath out, and download the Calm app for a few free meditation sessions. For when you need a minute or 30 to decompress and realign your perspective and priorities.
Visit a museum
Many museums are offering free virtual tours of their collections right now. Take a slow walk through the Smithsonian, The British Museum, and Van Gogh Museum. For a comprehensive resource of works around the world, check out Google Arts & Culture!
For the audio-lovers
The Social Stylate squad loves a good podcast! They’re so easy to fit into your day, whatever you’re doing, and have such a wide variety of topics. Take a look at our Squad Highlights on Instagram, there’s something for everyone!
Celebrities are reading children’s storybooks via Storyline Online and #savewithstories!. Both sites are great resources for children to listen to books being read aloud by some of your favorite actors!
Head to Broadway
Broadway shows are available for viewing without the crowds, without the traffic, and in the comfort of your own home. Channel your inner stage personality and brush up on all the shows you’ve been missing!
Go for a dip in the ocean
Check out aquariums around the country for live webcams and a behind-the-scenes look at all things under the sea. Don’t forget to visit the Shedd Aquarium on Twitter for the latest in their penguin escapades, as they let penguins explore the aquarium to keep them (and us!) engaged, entertained, and curious.
Keep following your favorite brands and blogs
Social media can be a healthy way to stay connected to each other during this time of social distancing. Our content creator, Sarahanne Alexander, writes her own blog and on the latest post is talking about what’s been helping her, while she continues to share photos of her town. Make sure to check in with each other often. Sending positive messages and beautiful images can brighten people’s day!
