Make sure you are still in routine when it comes to meals.
This will also keep you imitate a working day while working from home.
Eat healthy choices! Healthy food is energy and can help your brain stay motivated and focused on your work task.

I love yoga and have many friends that are giving classes on Zoom. YouTube online yoga instructors are also fantastic.
Going for a walk in your neighbourhood is also very important to get the blood flowing and your exercise in. I have my headset in while I walk and lesson to auto books. I never found the time to do this before so I'm trying to do the best out of this situation.
