Helpful Tips for Time at Home
1. Think about how much time you actually want to be working on something productive each day. How much is actually reasonable? Just because you’re “at work” all day now doesn’t mean you can feasibly work all day. Set a limit that after you reach each day, you step away from responsibility.
2. Take frequent breaks. No matter how enjoyable or consuming whatever you’re doing all day is, you need space from it every once in a while (even binge watching marathons). Walk around. Get a snack. Clear your head. Step outside if it’s accessible. Breathe deep into your stomach. Feel your feet on the ground.
3. Get a change of scenery when you can. Even if you’re stuck at your house or don’t have outdoor space where you live, I bet you have places in your home where you spend more time than others. Even if your place is small, change your seat at the table or your spot on the couch from your regular one. That weird feeling when you break that pattern? It’s your brain waking up a bit to the stimulation of something new. It helps, even if only a bit/for a while.
