5 Daily Habits if You're in a Slump 


Does anyone feel like they’re in a slump? I do.
We’re all trying to do our part in flattening the curve, which means most of us are staying at home. Although it’s great to be back with the kids full time, our usual daily routine is out of whack. No more leaving the house to go to work, no more visiting friends, no more driving the kids around. This weird slump feeling has happened to myself within just the first week of quarantine, and I imagine some people relate to my bummy feelings too.

I found a few little tricks that I do everyday in order to feel more “myself” at home, and I’d love to share them with you. They are super easy to do and don’t take more than a couple minutes a day! Here they are:


1. Make Your Bed  

This was part of my daily routine before the COVID-19 outbreak, and it still is now. By making my bed each morning, I feel like I already accomplished something before I leave my bedroom. It also makes me feel like I’m in control of something, and it sets the tone for a good day ahead.

2. Journal Everyday

I used to not journal – it felt weird writing my feelings into a book and I would always pressure myself to write something really profound. That’s not true. Overtime, I realized I could write whatever I wanted, and that fitting even 1 minute of journaling into my day has helped my outlook in life. What I do now is I just bullet point a few things that I’m grateful for and/or a little victory that I completed for that day. It could be doing one load of laundry, eating a piece of fruit or even getting out of bed (yes that’s a victory in itself). Doing this has really put my life in perspective and I often feel very lucky for the current blessings I already have.

3. Daily Movement 

I love moving. I love being in the outdoors and exercising, so staying home has been pretty difficult for me. Everyday, I feel more like a potato and my butt is starting to get sore sitting on the same chair all the time. Luckily, the internet has provided lots of ways to move around. Look online for yoga stretches, at-home workouts, or even have a dance break with the kiddos when you’re feeling icky. This will immensely help both your physical and mental health, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Here is a video that I tried recently:

4. Crack Open the Window

If we can’t go out, bring the outside air in. Breathing in some fresh air and getting rid of the stuffy air inside will clear your mood and maybe get rid of those headaches.

5. Get Out of Your PJs 

Lets face it: sweats and PJs are life. Are jeans even a thing anymore? HOWEVER: I’m a firm believer in that what you wear drastically shapes how you feel for the day. For me, wearing PJs mean that I’m going to be a bit lazier and slower than usual. That’s why I’ve started to wear other pieces from my wardrobe like some loose-fitting pants, cardigans, comfy sweaters, etc. Occasionally, I even put on some makeup if I have time and I instantly feel more awake.


Hopefully my tips help you in some way. Please remember: make sure you take care of both your mental and physical health during this transition period – this is weird time for all of us, and you’re not alone.

With most of our days spent indoors self-isolating due to the current health crisis, it's easy for our kids to get attached to their tech gadgets, while forgetting about the world outside. While it is crucial to stay indoors for our safety, it's also our responsibility as parents to remind our children about the importance of the great outdoors. Of course, if you can afford to step outside every now and then, they you should definitely take the opportunity.

Chores are not really fun... for adults or for kids. But since we're at home anyway, we can make the best out of it and have some fun while we're tidying up.
