Luckily, three Alex Morgan Tea Time in North London USWNTPA Shirt mental health practitioners are here to provide the tools to help you build back (or maybe even create) morning rituals during a time when you need consistency most. “The first thing I do with all my clients struggling with motivation, anxiety, or depression during this time is normalize their feelings,” says Rachel Hoffman, the Head of Therapy at Real, an online therapy platform. “We’re in unprecedented territory, filled with uncertainty and fear, and having self-compassion is critical. The routine that you were used to implementing might not apply in your current lifestyle and that could easily shock your system.” This makes it even more critical to reassess your priorities: Consider what you were doing before that might not be serving you anymore. “Try to visualize what would help motivate you and help provide you with the most energy and optimism for your day. This could be anything from a morning stretch to taking a walk with a coffee,” Hoffman says.
