Amanda Black Reveals Why She Will Never Take The Streets For Granted Again After Lockdown – Social distancing is an important way to slow down the spread of the new coronavirus.
But for many South Africans, like Amanda Black, keeping a distance from other people especially during a time of stress and uncertainty can feel isolating and lonely.
While there is a wealth of research pointing to the psychological downsides of loneliness and social isolation, there is an increasing amount of evidence suggesting that a certain amount of quality time alone is critical to well-being. Some things, this research suggests, are just better off being done by yourself without the distractions, opinions, or influences of other people.
Amanda Black took to social media to share the revelation of the self-quarantine, as much as self-isolation is important and can be healing, the company of others also has its own benefits.
This is what the caption had to say:
