Contemplate and regularly carve time out for just yourself.

Stay active and continue your regular self-care.

We are what we repeatedly do. A strict exercise regime is a must, no matter the age. Eat well, get some vitamin D, and practice mindfulness. Feeling sorry for yourself is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have. Staying healthy is one of the most important habits of successful entrepreneurs. Getting up early and exercising regularly boosts productivity and energy. Wealthy persons incorporate sports sessions in their morning routine. During activities like sports, billionaires take alone time to think.

Read and Learn continuously.

Develop the habit to read at a given time of day. Keep busy, make a schedule, and enter a virtual class. Now is your chance to put together different unfinished projects or to learn something new. Set aside regular time to check your newsfeed and give yourself a time limit. Mute things and hashtags which are triggering. This routine will boost happiness levels. Finding inspiration can be challenging, but the courage to seek it in unexpected places is what fosters original ideas.


Do things you’ve never done before.

It’s true that is not always possible to stay motivated, but with discipline you can overcome most of the problems. Schedule spontaneous time and surprise yourself. Mystery is not about traveling to new places, it is about looking with new eyes.

Host virtual happy hours for communicating with friends, family and colleagues.

Staying in touch with those you care about will help to maintain good mental health. Just because you’re self-isolating, doesn’t mean you have to cut yourself off altogether, says Anxiety UK. “If you feel that you’re beginning to struggle, take some time to call a friend or family member. Talk about how you’re feeling. If you don’t have anyone you can speak to you can call emotional support lines.”
