How's your weekend staycation going? Hopefully it – and you – are great!

They say necessity is the mother of invention, and today's Daily Dose is all about experiencing and connecting to art, animals and almost anything else despite social distancing, shutdowns and abandoned spaces.

From virtual tours to live cams, even a staycation can't keep you from hopscotching the globe and making the world your destination. In real time, you can see pandas playfully wrestle in San Diego and then sit back in the comfort of your favorite couch and take in the Louvre in Paris.

From the visually stunning to the artistically surprising to the emotionally heart-warming, we've put together a collection of free online classes, tours, apps and webcams that are sure to be boredom busters and mind builders. Check them out here.

Sunday's feel good activity: It's hard for our kids (and maybe even us!) to remember there is much to be thankful for when fear of missing out on proms, graduations, birthday parties, sleepovers and sporting events consume our thoughts. To get a healthy reality check and recapture a sense of happiness, try our Attitude of Gratitude activity.
