At the start of the shelter-in-place, the thought of enforced time at home may have made us feel like we would have all the time in the world.
But have you noticed how quickly the days and weeks are flying by?
Whether time is zooming by or dragging for you, according to the Stoic philosophers, it will be in our best interest to use this precious resource wisely.
Time cannot be regained or renewed, so we should be frugal with it.
This BBC Health article addresses how our perception of time is related to our creation of memories.

Life is fleeting. At this time, when so many lives are being lost every single day, we can honor the time we have by truly making the most of every moment.
