Tip 12: Take a Break

You’re stuck at home, and it’s frowned upon to even go to the grocery store if it’s not necessary. In most places, you cannot go to a restaurant unless it’s a drive-through. What are you going to do? Do something that takes your mind off of work makes you better in the long run. Take a walk, go on a run, cook, paint, read, or meditate—whatever it takes to make you relax and come back to work refreshed and ready for more. These should all be a part of your daily ritual.
