Keeping Mental Health A Priority During Coronavirus: Part Three

3. Try to keep a routine and a sense of purpose:

Sticking to a schedule is key. Don’t give in to the immediate urge to sleep in and stay up late. Set your alarm for your usual time and stick with your morning routine. Shower, eat what you normally would, get out of your pyjamas and find a space to set up work for the day. Even if you’re not able to work, creating a schedule of mealtimes, reading time, exercise, chores, and so on will help you to stay balanced in the weeks to come. Use any extra time you have very intentionally; don’t drift through the weeks. Pick one or two things you’ve wanted to learn about or how to do and teach yourself. Plan to come out of this quarantine with a new skill or hobby!
