Here are a few tips to manage your time at home: 
  • Set yourself three goals each day so you always feel you’re achieving something 
  • Find positive stories in the news and share them 
  • Put your headphones on and play some music that really lifts your spirits 
  • Plant seeds in a pot on your windowsill, notice how life continues as they grow 
  • Lose yourself in a new book, TV show or podcast 
  • Call a friend or loved one and have a good catch up.
