Our New Normal

A lot has happened in the last month. The world is sick, and we are all trying to learn how to deal with our new lives. Many of us are now working from home and trying to balance our work lives with our home lives. This line gets pretty blurry when you have access to your emails 24/7 and your boss has your personal phone number and maybe you also have kids at home that you are trying to teach while getting your work done. We are in crazy times right now, but this also gives us the opportunity to make some changes in our lives. We can add in the things we always wanted to do but didn’t have the time and we have the freedom to remove the things that weren’t quite working for us.

 

Waking Up Early

What time have you been waking up since you have been self-quarantining? I bet it probably isn’t that early. I know I have added an hour to my morning sleep. But you would be so much more productive if you stopped sleeping in so late and start getting up a bit earlier. Check out this information on the benefits of waking up early. There are even some tips on how to make this happen included. Some benefits include sustaining a healthier diet, helping your skin look healthy, GIVING YOU MORE TIME TO EXERCISE, increases concentration and productivity, and it can improve the quality of your sleep.

 

Drink Water

How much water have you been drinking while on quarantine? Are you still filling up that large water bottle and finishing it the required amount of times as you would if you were going into the office? I hope so because drinking enough water throughout the day can help you lose weight, maintain healthy skin, fight infections (hello Coronavirus?!?), get rid of toxins in your body, help prevent joint pain, can boost energy, can prevent constipation, and reduce the risk of cancer.
