When the world is changing all around you, holding on to some sense of normalcy can be a useful way to minimize stress and find comfort. Research has found that  maintaining routines can help people get a better handle on symptoms of stress and anxiety.4

Simple things like going to bed and waking up at the same time each morning can provide you with a sense of structure, even if it feels like other areas of your life are less predictable.

Other activities you might want to incorporate into your daily routine that may help your mental well-being during times of transition include:

  • Getting regular physical activity
  • Eating healthy meals
  • Getting plenty of rest each night
  • Creating realistic daily goals
