Some of ReachOut and FlexMami's tips from the video include:

  • Watch a movie or TV series with your mates using Netflix Party.

  • Set up a WhatsApp group with your friends, name it 'Quaran-memes' and share all the best corona memes you see.

  • Start a Quaran-Tunes playlist with a friend.

  • Pick a pal that you're comfortable with and write a diary. You can create a shared Google doc, name it 'The Lockdown Diaries' and promise to write in it regularly.

This is a confusing time for everyone, but it’s never been more obvious that we’re better together
