So here are 5 books recommendations to read during quarantine days that we think you can learn from and help you to cope with your loneliness.
1. Big Magic – Elizabeth Gilbert
Liz Gilbert shares about creativity, inspiration and also the creative life that she lived daily. She also gave tips for Creative Workers on how to be more productive.

3. Chasing Slow – Erin Loechner
This eye-opening book was a specific guide to what it takes to slow down. It doesn’t involve giving up what you want to do, going out in the mountains, or swearing off smartphones.
