Developing Healthy Habits at Home
We are creatures of comfort. We like routine and the known. In normal times, daily habits and routines provide stability and focus to our day and our minds. When we know what is ahead of us, we can anticipate and plan. Our habits are our coping strategies and help us manage our stress and help us relax. Some of us built these stress management skills throughout our lives as we adapted to different situations.
However, COVID-19 has disrupted our lives and may have thrown our routines and habits off track. Because of this, we now may feel increased stress without good ways to cope. This uncertainty and instability in our days can lead us to feel less motivated and productive. To better manage our stress, we can form new habits and coping skills because our pre-COVID-19 habits may not be an option right now.
