2. Be kind and respectful!

Quarantine is affecting the working couples the most as they would do anything to be in a proper working environment. Try to understand each other’s frustration and irritation of being constantly indoors. Quarantine isn’t a choice anyone made to be in. So, show kindness and respect towards your spouse at all times.


3. Make it fun

Instead of sulking in a corner, add fun activities to your daily quarantine routine. Play board games, watch movies together, explore new music, learn DIY for home décor etc. Try to enjoy all the extra time you have in quarantine.
