Any need to accept Sanyasa.

Q. Is there any need to accept Sanyasa ?

A. It is not advisable in this age of Kali to leave one's family
suddenly, for people are not trained as proper brahmachaaris and
grihasthas. Therefore, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu advised the braahmana not to be too eager to give up family life. It would be better to remain with his family and try to become purified by chanting the Hare Krishna Maha Manthra regularly under the direction of a spiritual master. This is the instruction of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. If this principle is followed by everyone, there is no need to accept
sannyasa. In the next verse, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu advises every
one to become an ideal householder by offencelessly chanting the Hare Krishna Maha Manthra and teaching the same principle to everyone he meets.

Anything done without involvement of mind is hypocrisy...

Sannyāsa is no exception and thus, it has to be mental not necessarily physical...
It is a state of mind and not necessarily orange garb and shaven head...

Sannyāsa it is an approach/attitude and not attire.

Sannyāsa means total detachment from all kinds of sensory objects...objects of seeing, touching, hearing, smelling and tasting.

Bhakti is when the mind naturally hankers to serve ŚrīKṛṣṇa without any motivation of material or spiritual benefit (bhukti or mukti)....

If one can practice this in most trying circumstances, it doesn't matter wherever it gets... :D
