While at home,
we're building
habits.

Times of stress and uncertainty can lead to poor choices.

Take time to take care of yourself.

Things we do as we're spending more time at home may become long-term habits. They can be good habits – or bad habits that will be hard to break later.

Check in with yourself:

  • Am I eating more often?
  • What kinds of foods am I eating?
  • Am I exercising? As often?
  • Am I spending quality time with my family?
  • Am I spending too much time online?
  • Am I drinking alcohol more?
  • Am I vaping? More? Around others?

What habits can I develop?

  • Can I start exercising?
  • Can I start reading a book?
  • Can I start a family game night?
  • Can I learn new recipes?
  • Can I take a daily walk?
  • Can I check in on a friend by phone?
