We've all been practicing #socialdistancing lately in the wake of COVID19. It's certainly got it's challenges—if you're just now working remotely, check out this post on how to work from home and remain productive—but we're staying positive. And if you know us at all, you know that here at Savas we love our #pets. We've got a motley crew of cats, dogs (even chickens!), a Slack channel dedicated to our #pets which features our beloved custom #pets emojis

Everything is better with our pets. Therefore, we give you How To (and How Not To) Practice Social Distancing as demonstrated by our Savas Cats and Dogs. Enjoy! 

How Not To Do Social Distancing

Getting in the personal space of others, for starters. 

Holding hands: not advisable.

Cuddling is out too, we are sorry to say.

It goes without saying, then, that kissing is also out for the time being. 

How To Social Distance

At this point, you might be thinking what can we do then! Fear not! The Savas Pets have many ideas to share with you about how to wisely and safely practice social distancing! Starting with:

Explore your own home! Like exploring your home city, but on a smaller scale. Spend time in a room or a chair you might not usually. Clean out a neglected closet. Or, get started on a home project you've been meaning to do for a while. 

 

 

You could take a nap—or a few naps—on your couch, by the fire, in your bed. 

Perhaps you're not one to nap. You could go through your closet. You know—try on old outfits, try out an entirely new look, prepare this year's Halloween costume. Declutter. The options are endless, really.

If you're working from home these days, you could set up your home office and/or learn best practices for working remotely. Try out different video conferencing tools by using them to stay in touch with friends, family, and co-workers.

If you have children, get them set up for online school or check out some of these resources for students (K-12)  of all experience levels who want to learn to code! 

If you like games, you could start with a house-wide game of hide-and-seek. That's fun!

Get outside! No need to just longingly look out the window—get out there! Play games in your yard, go on a walk in your neighborhood (staying 6 feet away from other neighbors you may cross paths with, please!), and enjoy the sunshine!
