It's been more than 48 hours since I left home, and I'm officially stir crazy.

As the most introverted introvert you'll ever meet, you would think that the self-quarantine would be a piece of cake for me. Be that as it may, I am disappointed to say that I've eaten all of the cakes as well as the rest of my self-quarantine snacks. If I don't find a hobby soon, I'll be having sleep for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next few weeks.

But thanks to our favorite newlyweds, we have all the inspiration we need to get off the couch and back into our daily self-care regimens.

In 2017, Ace Hood and Shelah Marie sat down with xoNecole to reveal the benefits of couples' yoga, and three years later, a recent Instagram post proves that these two still practice what they preach. In lieu of the Coronavirus pandemic, the recently married couple took to social media to remind us of the importance of sticking to your routine in the midst of the chaos, and we are here for all of it.

While many gyms and public spaces for exercise have been temporarily closed, Ace and Shelah are proof that this is the perfect time to get your self-care regimen all the way together.

Along with Ace and Shelah, read how 8 more of your favorite celebrities are practicing social distancing below:

Something that I try to mention, as much as possible, especially when it comes to married and long-term couples is, if you want to go the distance, it's not just the "big things" that you've got to stay up on; it's the little things too. Something as simple as you being a morning person while your partner is a night owl can affect everything from quality of sleep to quality time to your sex life. That's why, when it comes to couples who have different sleep patterns who still want to have a fulfilling sexual dynamic, I'm all about encouraging them to do what is at the foundation for all successful relationships — compromise. Sometimes that means that an alarm clock needs to be set or someone needs to initiate some, umm, stuff (more on that in a bit) in order to get the juices flowing (pun intended and not intended).

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"
