Getting Enough Sleep
Sleep is the time for your body to reset and recharge after working all day to keep you running. For adults, seven to nine hours is recommended each night to maintain a healthy sleep schedule.
Just like stress, sleep deprivation affects your bodily functions and makes your body go into overdrive. Just like any machine, our bodies cannot sustainably be on overdrive and still function at its best every day. Have a target wake-up time and adjust your evening schedule to make sure you can get a full seven to nine hours each night.
Maintaining Proper Hygiene
The most simple way to protect yourself is by maintaining good hygiene. Keep wearing masks out in public, especially in crowded spaces. Sanitize surfaces and commonly touched areas – including your phone, watch, earbuds, counters, keyboards, mice, etc. Anything that is touched throughout the day should be sanitized regularly, especially if you live with other people.
