11 Easy Tips to Protect Your Mental and Digital Well-Being

It’s been more than a year since the pandemic started and I can count with the fingers of both hands the number of times I went out. I have adjusted surprisingly well considering I live alone, but the cracks have started to show in the past few months. There are times when I talk to myself out loud. My social skills have declined and I find myself unable to respond during meetings and video calls. I get tired when I get multiple deliveries in a day or when I interact with a lot of people. My wellbeing is not doing so good.

I wanted to find ways to care for myself as we continue to survive during the pandemic.

Kenny Rogers Roasters Launches its Delivery Website and I Tried it Out

I live in a family-sized house, which I would soon learn is more difficult to maintain on my own than a room or a condo unit. Eventually, something had to give and I gave up cooking. Now, I sign up for a meal prep service or have food delivered when I’m craving something specific.

Kenny Rogers Roasters is making it easier to order their warm, inviting muffins, delicious side dishes, and the mouthwatering, savory roasted chicken with the launch of their delivery website.
