2. Preserve daily routines as much as possible

  • Wake up and have your coffee in the morning!
  • Start your online work at the same time you normally would.

3. Take a break from social media and news and don’t overexpose yourself to too much information.

  • It’s okay to look away from the news and watch something irrelevant!
  • Sometimes funny/cute pictures of cats and dogs is the only ‘stimulation’ we need.
