These are stressful times. In the age of COVID-19, change is constant as we learn more about the disease. Coping with all of it is difficult.

In the meantime, here are a few tips to help you cope with sheltering in place.
Keep a routine
Even though you may be able to stay in your pajamas all day that doesn’t mean you have to. Set some daily goals: exercise, work time, mealtimes, outdoor time, family time – and stick to it. Or start your day as you would normally – with some stretching or a jog, a shower, and breakfast. You can put those comfy jammies back on, but at least you’ll have maintained some semblance of normalcy.
Humans are social animals. In addition to food, drink, sun and exercise, we need other humans. Keeping social distance can take a toll on our state of mind. Luckily, technology and the human spirit help keep the social in distancing. Video conference parties, patio jam sessions, and online gaming allow us to stay connected while staying at least 6 feet apart.
Give yourself a break
These are hard times. Prior to COVID-19, Americans led very busy lives. Now, we’re being asked to not be so busy. Whether you’re working from home or home from work, allow yourself some time to relax, be alone, and recharge. Watch a new show, catch up with some reading, or savor a favorite beverage.
