American actress, Jada Pinkett Smith dishes out relationship nuggets to help lead a safe life amid the coronavirus pandemic, without throwing away the essence of relationships.
Amid the growing anxiety caused by the Covid-19 global outbreak, actress, songwriter, and businesswoman, Jada Pinkett Smith gave out a ray of hope on how to deal with the global scare and still enjoy a blossoming relationship.

Also present to help drive home the messages were motivational vlogger, Jay Shetty, and media personality, Dr. Ramani Durvasula, as well as co-hosts Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield Norris.
The talk was centered on a facebook post from a concerned fan seeking to know how to create a balance with loved ones without compromising on the self-quarantine exercise practiced by millions across the globe to curb the viral menace. The ice-breaking post read:
"I love my wife, but I need some alone time during this quarantine. How can I tell her that?"
Jay was on hand to explain the importance of maintaining some form of distance. However, he pointed out that while seeking space in a relationship, one needed to outrightly explain to the other party, the reason behind the decision.
The mother of two couldn't agree more, as she reflected on how the idea of seeking space most times wrongly came off as wanting a separation, which could make the relationship go south.
Will expressed that he felt responsible for the misconceptions and anxiety surrounding the virus.
The episode also stressed the importance of maintaining distance while the coronavirus prevails, a topic the actress, alongside husband Will Smith, dissected in last week's episode.
During the previous episode, Will expressed that he felt responsible for the misconceptions and anxiety surrounding the virus because of his role in the movie, "I Am Legend," which promoted certain myths.
Notwithstanding, the Smiths have been cautious since the outbreak, especially their son, Jaden, who was noticeably absent from the show. Explaining her son's absence, the businesswoman said:
"He's been doing a lot of traveling, and his main concern has been about Gammy, so he has decided to stay indoors, and he is actually following orders."
This comes days after the couple's nineteen-year-old daughter, Willow Smith, got a haircut to promote "The Anxiety" exhibit held at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The new-look was aimed at signifying a new beginning in the youngster's life whilealso promoting her art.
A source revealed that the nineteen-year-old has struggled with anxiety in the past, but was determined to leave it all behind, with her parent's support, hence the new buzzcut. It looks like the Smiths are far from letting the ongoing pandemic ruin their perfect family time.
