Here are a few ideas to help save your sanity during the COVID-19 lockdown…
The thought of being stuck at home, unable to even walk around the block, adds a whole new level of anxiety surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic for many people.
For parents, it also means trying to homeschool and work – which seems impossible.
It’s not going to be a walk in the park (that’s forbidden anyway), but here are some tips to help you navigate the lockdown period while maintaining some level of sanity:
Set meal times and pack snacks
The walk to the fridge is a short one, making it all the easier to snack. And if you have kids, their boredom-induced constant demand for snacks could drive you nuts.
An easy way to avoid this is to stick to set meal and snack times. You could also pack lunch boxes – as you would do for a school day. If your kids are old enough to help, do this together while tidying up after breakfast.
Packing lunch and snacks once a day should help keep calories in check and reduce the amount of time you have to spend in the kitchen – which is all the more helpful when you have to work from home.
