Whatever our circumstances it can be helpful to stop and rethink our weekly routines. Lots of us did this at the beginning of coronavirus. Is it time to revisit this?
Perhaps we've got stuck in a rut? Even though nothing around us has changed much, this doesn't mean that we can't shake things up a bit and check that our routines are still working for us.
For those of us transitioning into new routines with school, work or other activities opening up we might want to make sure the new routines that are emerging include something for us too.
