How to organize your program when you stay home during quarantine.
The coronavirus pandemic forces most people to dramatically change their daily routine, given to the isolation measures taken by the authorities. It is important to organize our time correctly and have a productive quarantine.
5 important elements in a day's program!
In this written schedule we must keep in mind, in writing, five elements daily:
• Basic activities (eg hygiene, meal, study / service, interpersonal relationship, play / relaxation, sleep). •Psychologists stress the importance of dieting "which needs to be controlled rigorously to be healthy" and sports activities, both of which contribute to maintaining good health.
•At least one behavior that we enjoy: watching a movie / reading a book / sport, etc.
•At least one defining behavior in our personality: "If we are sociable / extroverted, we can call for social support those who need it."
•At least one behavior related to our set of values / principles and then we focus on making decisions: "If generosity is a value for you, you can volunteer to help in this period," details the psychologist.
Socializing behaviors seen as an antidote to stress: “Physical isolation does not mean psychosocial isolation. In this process of socialization, although it is good to plan many activities together in the couple / family, it must be left a personal space, ”explains David.
The program must be checked, that’s the best way to respect the schedule.
The psychologist states that "it is important for someone to check us, once or twice a day, that we follow and implement the schedule, especially for those of us who know we have difficulties in self-discipline. This supportive monitoring is fundamental especially for the elderly in isolation and can be done by relatives or friends. " If the schedule is not implemented effectively, David recommends "we analyze the causes, eliminate them and redo it until it becomes accepted."
"These practices will become a new healthy routine of life, some things can be kept then in the post-crisis period!", Concludes the psychologist.
In recent weeks, we all have had to step far beyond the boundaries of our comfort zone. The inability to go out, anxiety for oneself and loved ones, a change in habits, the uncertainty of the future - all these factors cause stress.
In such a difficult and stressful situation, it is important to eat right, not to forget about physical activity and monitor your emotional state.
Our mood is influenced by a lot of factors. One of them is the surrounding colors. It is very important to have foods of all colors in the diet: for example, red tomatoes, orange oranges, yellow apples, green lettuce and parsley, purple eggplant and basil. This diversity also allows you to increase the amount of antioxidants, vitamins and trace elements in the diet, and it is also very useful for our microbiota.
Plan the menu for the next 3-4 days and write a list of everything you need. If you have a plan, then there will definitely be much less harmful goodies in your basket.
You eat food several times a day. Accordingly, calories, together with protein-fats-carbohydrates, enter your body properly. And if you do not spend them just as well, then they will begin to settle in the form of fat deposits on the stomach, hips and buttocks. Being in isolation and not being able to go through at least 10 thousand steps, you need to do exercises every day.
The state of routine in ordinary life a person withstands in many respects due to the potential ability to get out of it. He knows that one day there will come a day off, a holiday or a trip to a restaurant. Even for those people who have not left their homes for years, such a theoretical possibility exists and makes life bearable.
In a changing situation, it is important to carry out all the daily activities that a person is used to. Remain in the present without thinking about the future, because no one can know anything about it.

When staying in quarantine, people start creating funny things. Some people invent funny games, other creative occupations. While spending the whole day at home, let’s see how others are spending their time, maybe we find something good for us.
A person in lockdown starts seeing his house as a big and luxurious castle, or a battlefield, even that floor is lava. Jimmy Fallon was wandering where the human creation can get, and started a challenge with the hashtag #ImSoBored.
The comedian asked people to tell him funny things they have done to pass the time in quarantine. Yes, boredom is the path to creationism, new ideas and funny actions.
James Thomas Fallon is an American comedian, actor, television host, writer, and producer. He is known for his work in television as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and as the host of late-night talk show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and before that Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
The Tonight Show is the third longest running show on NBC,and due to coronavirus it got a quarantine rendition. Since Fallon’s show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and other late-night shows that spread good mood and fun have suspended production due to the pandemic, the Fallon found a good solution. Jimmy created the "At Home Edition” episode which are coming out live from Fallon’s home.
You can’t find a protective mask in pharmacies or it’s price is hitting you? If you want to protect yourself, a mask to cover the mouth and nose can be made at home. However, a textile mask is not as effective as a surgical one, but it is very useful during this period. If you do not know how to sew, with a scissors, a piece of material and two hair bands you can make a protective mask.
The American Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) has reverted to previous recommendations made in the context of the pandemic and currently believes that wearing simple masks in textiles could slow the spread of coronavirus.
Instructions for making your home a protective mask
The material used should be cut in such a way that it is wide and long enough to cover your nose and mouth
The material should be bent at length.
At each end tie a hair elastic.
Bring the ends tied inwards.
Arrange the mask near the mouth and nose and fasten the elastics behind the ears.
It is important to know:
•Simple surgical masks have a much higher protection than textiles.
• Even if we wear a mask, we must keep at least 3 steps away from the others.
•We disinfect / wash our hands before and after putting on our masks and do not touch them when wearing them.
•After each use, the textile masks must be washed: a washing machine is sufficient.
•Such textile masks are especially useful in places where physical distance is difficult to maintain: queues, small shops or pharmacies, crowded means of transport, etc.
• This recommendation can be used as an additional public health measure.
• The CDC emphasizes that textile masks should not be worn by children under 2 years of age or by persons with respiratory problems.
• The materials from which the textile masks are made do not sufficiently protect the hospital environment.
•The World Health Organization strongly recommends wearing surgical masks or special protective masks in the hospital environment.
Their relatives, friends, friends of their friends died. In all families there is a tragic story: death, illness, poverty, bankruptcy. After 11 weeks of severe quarantine, the "lock" was opened and Wuhan City, the "heart" of the pandemic that has plagued the world is trying to come back to life.
The city with 11 million inhabitants begins to fall asleep after more than two and a half months, it was like a ghost. The new coronavirus started right here from an animal and bird market and spread uncontrolled across the globe. Today (April 8), a few days after China had no local transmission case, and just a day after the historic "no death of Covid-19" restrictions were lifted. The quarantine imposed on January 23 ended at midnight Tuesday through Wednesday, and passengers began storming buses and stations, some wearing full-length suits.
But the over 80,000 cases and 3,300 deaths remain behind and the hope that one day the world will look exactly like before the coronavirus. For now, it's just hope, because there's a long way to go.
Although some restrictions have been lifted by the authorities, many control measures remain in place. The Chinese were warned not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Those who go to Beijing go through two rounds of tests, and in other provinces, those who come to Wuhan have to be quarantined for two weeks, the New York Times writes.
In addition, everyone is required to use a tracking application on their phone or tablet and to prove that they were not sick or did not come into contact with sick people of COVID-19. The Chinese system records every place where people make payments and the network of hundreds of millions of surveillance video cameras is famous.
