Keeping Consistent While Uncertain

Structuring Your Health Routine(s) While Quarantined
Regardless of your prediction, we all know for certain that our lives will remain indoors for the rest of April.
Now that we’ll be inside for (at least) another few weeks, let’s double-down on building and keeping a sound health routine while quarantined.
One of the most invaluable tools of the human body is its ability to adapt to the surrounding environment.
So, as our environment has become largely confined to the walls of our living room, it’s necessary to create consistent routines that stimulate, challenge and expand all aspects of health and wellness.
Rest & Recovery
These are the components of health and wellness.
At a time when optimism and perseverance are necessary for survival, neglecting any part of our health and wellness is detrimental to our spirit to overcome this quarantine. When any of these components are neglected, symptoms of isolation and boredom are heightened.
In order to optimize your health and wellness, first start by scheduling it into your daily life (especially on workdays).
Each person has their own schedule and lifestyle, so scheduling is person-specific. The important thing is to make sure it has a dedicated space on your daily planner.
Here’s the thing: without structure, without planning, even the best intentions of health and wellness practices will quickly get shoved aside as your day naturally progresses.
Just as you schedule your conference calls and your Zoom meetings, allocate and block off your time for your daily health and wellness practices.
Once you have set aside the time, pick a simple 5-15 minute routine that optimizes each component of health and wellness.
Below are some examples to help you get started:

These are just examples; The options are endless.
The key is to make sure you are satisfying each component to optimize your health and wellness.
