What a year 2021 is turning out to be. None of us could have foreseen where we would be right now, in the month of July, in an indefinite lockdown with above 6,000 daily COVID-19 cases. While the National Immunisation Program is seemingly on track, the reality is that we’ve got a long way to go to reach herd immunity.

Set a routine

“Routine is always something I put first on the list because without a routine, I would actually be scrolling away on Tiktok or Instagram. I wake up early, work out, take my shower, put my make up on and spritz perfume, get dressed and get ready for work, which is just down the hallway. It’s how I started my day pre-COVID and is still how I start my mornings till this day.”
