Social distancing: How are you spending your time?

The coronavirus pandemic has drastically altered the world in 2020, and two words that sum up the slew of seismic changes that have touched every single human on earth are no other than "social distancing."

Classes were suspended, shops pulled down their shutters, gatherings were no more and living rooms began to double as offices as everyone was urged to hunker down in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Almost overnight, we've woken up to a new world with a new normal, where even the most unremarkable of activities, like grocery shopping or giving someone a hug, have been redefined.
