As a certified life coach working with executive professionals, I often share tips to master their mental health and wellbeing.   Tips to manage stress in times of turmoil and confusion.   Below are a few tips I’ve shared to help during the recommended “social distancing” for the pandemic. 

10 Productive Things to Do While “Homebound” During the Coronavirus Pandemic

  1. Make a list of 10-things you’ve promised yourself you would do when you found the time. Well, you have the time now.
  2. Create a weekly schedule to tackle your to-do-list. Don’t overthink or over commit. Just take one item at a time. Celebrate the accomplishment.
  3. Reorganize a space that’s cluttered – i.e., closet, cabinet, cupboard, car, etc.
  4. Review and remove outdated files from your computer. Chances are you don’t need that file from 2010.
  5. Select an online filing system – like Dropbox, etc. The “cloud” is safe. We’ve tested it.
  6. Biz folks – convert frequently used forms to PDF fillable. This item is on my to-do-list and should be on yours too.
  7. Decrease the number of emails in your inbox to 50% or less. Same as #1. You don’t need that email thread from 2010. Delete it.
  8. Set up folders to automatically sort “nonessential” emails. Review the folder 2-3 times per week vs. multiple times per day.
  9. Set-up folders for repeat senders by name or category (i.e., Amazon or Shopping)
  10. Review and revise your long- and short-term goals. This is the perfect time to reflect on what’s most important for you.
