Have a plan
Most humans are dependent on schedule for stability and to work. Right now, many people are struggling to keep a normal schedule because there are not used to staying at home. The best step you can take is to come up with a schedule with your partner. The plans can include the time you will need to work, the time you will need to exercise, the time you will need to chat, the time you will need to take a break etc. The essence of the plan is to make everything feel like normal, and it also makes working from home easier.
Ensure the plan also contain general ground rules that will bind working hours.
Don’t sit inside all day and night
We have indeed been ordered to stay indoors, but that doesn’t stop us from walking around the house, cycling or skating. When things are tensed, getting outside to do other things like those mentioned earlier will help you not to explode. If you live in an apartment where you also have neighbor, always remember the six feet social distancing rule to keep you safe from any germy droplets.
Walking or cycling in the compound is good for your mental health, and connecting with nature can also help reduce anxiety and depression symptoms.
Keep touch with happening around you
If you love yourself, it is not possible to go out and see family or friends. The essence of social distancing is to give enough space to prevent the germ from spreading. Technology has helped us by providing different ways to communicate with other people. Being indoor with your partner shouldn’t stop you from communication with friends and loved ones.
Ensure you make calls to people that can help your mental health and sanity. Video chat some friends and most importantly maintain a healthy relationship with other people even while you are with or partner 24/7.
