“Stay Home” Tips & Ideas

Hey there!

My thoughts are constantly on my friends, family and clients during this time – while everyone is dealing with our current situation differently, it never hurts to have ideas of how to stay active, connected, sane and healthy!

I thought it might be useful to cultivate and send out some resources and tips – use what serves/helps you and leave the rest.  Some are free and others are low cost 😊  And as always, if you need to talk – I’m here!   (This is by no means a comprehensive list – just things that we are doing and know of!  If you have other suggestions to add, please send them my way!)

  • If you’re currently not working:
    • Take it easy on yourself…whatever you choose to do right now is just right. 
    • Create structure if that helps you cope – get up at a certain time each day, make time to get outside in the sun, and engage in activities you’ve not had time for before
    • Do something that brings you joy each day:  Read, Paint, Walk, Cook, Bake, Nap, Virtual Happy Hour with your friends and family
  • If you are currently working:
    • Create a comfortable and engaging space for yourself to spend your days in that allows for privacy and focus
    • Consider creating some kind of ritual or habit to start and end your day with in order to create boundaries around your work vs home time (ie: meditate every morning at 8, and family happy hour every day at 4:30)
    • Take breaks as you would normally (or better 😊)
    • Be sure to ask for what you need from anyone that you share space with, unapologetically
    • If you have children, consider setting them up with structure during your work time in order to keep them occupied so that you can focus

I hope this is helpful!  I miss you all and look forward to when I can see and working you all again! 

Thank you!!

Meagan English
