COVID-19 Positive Coping Post # 4 March 24, 2020 ⏰ Keep a routine! Schedule out your day, even the fun stuff. Set a schedule for getting up, meals and bedtime. Resilience thrives with proper nutrition and rest. This is not the time to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. Get dressed as though you’re meeting people outside. Fill the day with projects and end it with pleasant rituals such as reading and catching up with friends over video. Build in time to exercise, from YouTube or an app in the living room or outdoors. Consider what anchors and relaxes you—meditating, music, yoga or gardening. Watch funny movies. Start a journal. Steer clear of social media that makes you anxious and restrict news consumption, especially one hour before going to sleep.
