    To make the best of the quarantine period, here is some advice (divided in ten verbs) by Efrén Rodríguez at Caracas Chronicles:

    1. Call: people you haven’t seen in a while.
    2. Read: from the pile of books stacked at your bedside table.
    3. See: movies, series, there’s a bunch of online options.
    4. Organize: your home. Get rid of what doesn’t give you joy.
    5. Exercise: your abs. Use the spare time to do healthy stuff.
    6. Study: and learn something new.
    7. Talk: to your family, your elders, your kids.
    8. Listen: to things like this.
    9. Write: “punch the keys!” – on your computer.
    10. Play: chess or Fortnite, there are free options both online and in the physical world.
