What to do while currently in Nashville
- Food delivery
Restaurants may be closed but that doesn’t need to prevent you from having some delicious food and keeping your body fuelled and healthy. You can visit UberEats, GrubHub, Postmates or other delivery websites, pick anything you want and have it delivered to your home or location.
- Communicating with your loved ones
You can use this time to reconnect with your loved ones through different video options online. Keeping everyone up-to-date about yourself, making sure everyone is healthy and well and “making someones’ day” by giving them a good laugh is a great way to maintain strong relations even when you cannot physically spend time together.
Virtual coffees and dinner dates with a friend, family member, a loved one, or a “double-date” even with another couple is the thing to do during these corona times. Why not enjoy someones’ company while everyone stays in the comfort of their home? Times like these sometimes ask us to adapt to another lifestyle, but why not make the best of it?
- Live streams and virtual concerts
With many venues and concert halls shut down in Nashville due to the coronavirus, you have the option of watching streams and virtual concerts from the safety and comfort of your own home. Here is a list of events for you to enjoy and it keeps getting updated so make sure you’re always checking what’s new!
If you’re at home, you probably have a shelf full of books that you’ve always wanted to read but never got to. Or perhaps you have some texts that you’ve saved on your phone under “read later.” This is the perfect time to take your mind off the current stressful situation and dive into a literary world, at least for a an hour or two a day.
Also, writing or keeping a journal and getting those thoughts and feelings out on paper can be a true stress reliever during times like these.
- Take a walk in nature close to or around your home/location
All metro park facilities and gardens in Nashville are currently closed to the public until April 24th 2020.
Although social distancing during these times is very important, going outdoors for some fresh air and a quick walk are just as important for our health. We suggest talking a walk around your living premises, going for a run, making use of your backyard or simply going on your balcony more frequently during the day.
The entire LuggageHero team wishes you good health and positive vibes!
It’s important that we all follow the measures set by the authorities and protect ourselves and others.
