Make your bed every morning.
Schedule 30mins a day of news/social media.
If you would normally programme your workouts on a spreadsheet or in a training diary then continue to do so.
Go to bed & wake up at the same time every day.
Schedule time to virtually connect with family & friends.
Move your body at the same time every day.
Keep your usual meal times.
Spend the weekend talking to people that you would normally be going out with.
Keep on top of any normal self-care behaviour.
Set aside designated time in your day for any cleaning and cooking.
Try to stay on top of ‘life admin’ such as spreadsheets and your usual appointments via the phone or online etc.
Create a calendar of tasks & jobs that need completing for the following week, even make a list just for the following day if you prefer. I find it best to colour code my calendar and split it into a number of sections.
*Remember to start off small. If you try to adjust too many things in your normal routine you are more likely to fail & more likely to awaken your “monkey mind”. This comes into play when an action causes you to think of a related action and this can continue for a while until eventually you are doing something that has nothing to do with the first action. I speak from experience on this, (as someone with ADHD I have become all too familiar with my monkey mind).*
