Life before quarantine might have been hectic, but when Sundays suddenly feel like Tuesdays, having a plan of action can be the only way to make sure you’re actually getting quality self-care time in.
Scheduling can be as easy as writing down four things you want to accomplish by the end of the day and setting times to start and stop each task. “Block off time for work or school projects, cooking and family meals, group exercise, chores around the house, and quiet time for reading or doing something creative,” recommends Elena Villanueva, a functional holistic medicine expert. This simple act of organization will do wonders for fighting anxiety and gaining a sense of control over your own life in these days of self-quarantine.
