In a time of uncertainty, I've outlined a schedule for myself to maintain some sort of normalcy and to keep me from eating all the quarantine snacks.
I lay in bed for 2 minutes and NOT grab my phone. Anxiety coach Trish Barillas recommends allowing the body to catch up and avoid screens as soon as you wake up.

Stretch + Ground + Meditate + Journal
I've been making super easy breakfasts, chia pudding with fruit and granola. Avocado toasts and soft boiled egg.
Thankfully I have some projects that are still in play but like everyone else and as a freelancer, a lot of projects were put on hold or canceled. I'm running with this force pause and taking a time out to explore creative projects I've been meaning to do.
