This isolation life has ruined my body clock! What even is an everyday routine anymore because I’ve completely lost mine? It wasn’t too bad when Paul was still going to work as I’d get up when he left, but just recently it’s sure gone to pot.

Although I’ve not been getting up mega late I still feel I’m wasting half of my days, but I suppose in reality my body is thanking me for the rest. Carry on reading if you wanna see what a typical day of my life in isolation routine looks like!

Please can I just add that everyday is different, I chose a more productive day for the sake of this blog post.

Isolation Routine

  • 9:00am – Alarm: So during isolation, I have been setting my alarm a little later. Today I set it for 9am but I went back to sleep for a couple of minutes.
  • 9:30am – Time to move: My second alarm went off at 9:30am and this time I actually stayed awake. Whilst my eyes re-adjust, I scrolled through my phone to catch up on messages and notifications. I then jumped in the shower and got dressed.
  • 10:00am – Standard morning shiz: I then applied my skincare, blow-dried my hair and made breakfast. I’m loving ready brek with sliced banana and a dash of maple syrup at the moment so that’s what I went with today.
  • 10:30am – Morning coffee: Next I made myself and Paul a coffee, I use the Nespresso machine for my coffee and the aeroccino to froth my milk. I then got comfy on the sofa and watched a little TV.
  • 11:00am – Makeup: Next up, I took myself into my beauty room and applied my makeup. I decided to just do a basic kind of look today as I wasn’t taking pictures or anything.
  • 11:45am – Time to get productive: I then turned on my laptop and worked on a blog post before checking my emails. I also took time out to go onto my Instagram around and interact with people.
  • 12:30am – Phone Calls: I had a catch-up with one of my friends, just to see how she is and what she’s been up to. It was also nice to get my mind off blogging for an hour or so.
  • 1:30pm – Break: Once I finished on the phone I then grabbed myself a bite to eat, another coffee and I had an hours break. During this time I also picked up my phone and went through my socials.
  • 2:30pm – Home design: Paul’s been looking for prints for the lounge so I helped him to choose a few before returning to my laptop.
  • 3:15pm – Back to the laptop: Today I was tryna sort an emailing list to my blog, so that’s what I worked on nearly all afternoon! It’s so simple but I just make everything 10 x harder for myself….hence why it took me so long.
  • 7:00pm – Make dinner/tea: Here in Stoke, we call dinner tea and that’s what I got up to after finishing on my laptop. I like to cook something simple when I’ve worked late, so I went for baked chicken, sweet potato wedges and veg.
  • 8:30pm – Wind down: I started to wind down about 8pm after having my thinking brain all day. I decided to chill with the doggies for an hour or so before I decided to head to bed.
  • 9:30pm – Bedtime: 9:30pm is probably quite an early bedtime for most of you but I like to head up early and watch some TV in bed so there was no change here. I then turn the lights off around 11pm and went to sleep.

That’s pretty much what I get up to on a productive day in isolation, what do you tend to do? Let me know in the comments. Also, don’t forget to like this post and subscribe if you wanna receive emails from me!
