How to Have a Healthy Daily Routine During Lockdown
Contrary to popular belief we humans need a bit of structure. It helps to have a bit of order which, is necessary for creativity. The order doesn’t need to be prescriptive, it just needs to have flow to it.
Plan Your Day
Any routine starts with a plan, so have a plan. You don’t need to be detailed nor do you need to plan your day to the last hour. Have highlights of things you would like to do each day. It could be that you’re going to put laundry on. Or, if you’re working from home, you’d like regular breaks so you can stretch or play with your kids. Or, you may want to plan your Netflix watching schedule. Your daily routine is yours to create and have fun!
Make it Easy for You
A routine doesn’t need to require a Masters in Neurology. This is your routine, which means you can do whatever the hell you want to do. Make it easy and filled with stuff that you actually want to do. There’s no point in putting pressure on yourself to continuously include things that fill you with dread.
Have Fun with it
