My isolation routine

At times like these, it’s so easy to fall out of your routine. especially if you’re like me and not able to work through it!

I started creating a little routine for myself to keep myself occupied. I’m not stressing if I don’t stick to it, but it’s nice to try and find structure to my days.

Most days I’m setting myself an alarm, normally around 7:30/8 ish. I like to laze in bed for a little and look through social media. For the first two weeks before lockdown I was ill with suspected coronavirus, so I wasn’t actually looking at social media, after feeling better I deleted all apps for the first week of lockdown. Mainly for my mental health and just to actually enjoy some quality time with Andy.

7:30/8am – wakeup and make the bed

8-10:30am – workout/go for a run/ bike ride. Have some breakfast, have a shower or a bath, do my full skincare routine (will cover this in another post!)

10:30-12ish – read a book, sunbathe, tidy the house, do some colouring, play animal crossing.

12-1pm – lunch

1-4pm – go outside for an hour (if I haven’t run or gone for a cycle in the morning) do some DIY, prep dinner, go on social media, tick one thing off my to do list.

4-6pm – feed the cat, start dinner

6pm – dinner, tidy away kitchen.

6pm onwards – netflix, chilling in the living room, skincare routine again and go to bed by 10pm

Each day is so different and I am 100% having days where I literally do sweet FA. But having some sort of routine in my mid makes the day go a little quicker and stops me losing my sanity so much.

I’ve created a massive to do list of things I’ve said I’d do “when I have the time” – ranging from DIY round the house to finish it off (we’re renovating), to self care things, to organising. My goal is to tick one thing off a day so on days I feel trapped or like I havent made use of all this time off I can see my list getting smaller. It may be a thing that can help one of you if you’re struggling!

What are your days looking like? Are you still working? Let me know in the comments section!

Take care, Sian x
