Good Habits and Regular Routines

Everyone has had disruption in their lives recently.  Some have lost their jobs, or had to adjust daily schedules because of work and children.  No more simply running quickly in and out of the store. 
There is the constant worry of cleanliness, 
staying clear of strangers, and missing our friends.
Every place you normally went to for  exercise and stress relief is not available. 
Sometimes, we feel lost in time or begin to become less motivated.  

Wake up and go to bed at the same time each day.  
Write out your new schedule for the week.  Put in "blocks" of time to exercise each day.
(Walk - Sit-ups - Stretch - Yardwork - Zoom Class - TV Yoga - Swim in Backyard - Stairs)
Know when, and what, you are going to eat. 
Don't just throw something together when you start to get hungry.  No grazing.
Write out your plan for the day on what you want to get done.  
Check off the list as you go.  Give yourself a sense of accomplishment!
Read something.  Learn a new skill.  Try a new recipe.

The most important thing to remember is this will not last forever.  Keep up the great things that you're doing.  Make memories with your family.  Stay grounded.  And breathe.
