All the change lockdown has brought has probably made life pretty chaotic for so many of us. Our exercise, sleep, food, morning and evening routines have probably fallen out of sync, and need a bit of a reboot.
When we have established and healthy daily routines, we are able to life better, as we can think clearer, and move around more easily through what each day throws at us. It keeps us in control. Routines provide a secure framework to fit everything else around.
If you are reading this and thinking “yes, that’s me, I’ve let my routines slide”, it can seem like you have a lot of work to do to get back to normal - but re-setting shouldn’t be scary or demanding if we are patient with ourselves and give it time, doing things bit by bit.
Maybe this week, you might want to start by building better night routines to fix your sleeping patterns - or you might want to start exercising again - whatever suits you best.
This article from Shine offers some helpful pointers and ideas for building routines. Hope it helps!

Time has flown by! Has it really been five months since Lockdown started?
Lockdown has looked so different for all of us. It’s been like a really long holiday for some, and an uphill struggle for others. But either way, it’s been a huge overnight change to life as we know it. As lockdown is easing up, we are facing more changes as we re-assimilate back to our old routines. And these routines are going to be different to how it was before.
That’s why we need to have things in place to help maintain our mental and physical wellbeing as we navigate these things. Let’s remember that it’s not going to happen overnight, so we need to have a ton of patience for ourselves and for others.
