Food + Routines = Sanity Fri, Apr 03, 2020
What am I doing to stay sane? Well for me, staying home and being quiet isn’t straining, because it’s not very different from my preferred routine. But something that keeps me oriented is maintaining my usual schedules. I still wake up at least an hour and a half before work to drink my coffee, eat breakfast, do my hair/makeup, etc. I still workout after work. I still meal prep on Sundays. Dinner is still at 7p. I still dabble in crafts after dinner (like embroidery recently) if I’m not watching a show, and I’m still in bed at 10p sharp.
But for my husband, who is home from work and probably the most extroverted person I’ve ever met, things have been more difficult. So we have found a few new things to do together in lieu of going out. We like to take walks together around our neighborhood, workout together in the nearby park, and have been having virtual happy hours with our far away friends. I even made a pretty sweet charcuterie board for our last one. We’ve also been having “themed” dinners. I’ll make a dish I haven’t made before, and we’ll pick out some beer or wine to go with it. So far I’ve experimented with chilaquiles, miso ramen, and schnitzel. So yeah, the workouts in the park are definitely essential.
Overall I'm enjoying the extra quality time with him since his busy schedule before didn't allow for much of it🙂
