TBC’S Quarantine Survival Guide


TBC’S Quarantine Survival Guide

It’s easy to lose focus and motivation when stuck at home. This is why we’ve put together a list of tips from our team to survive quarantine that will keep you energized and productive.

1. Establish a Routine

Feeling like a master procrastinator? We get it. Distractions happen. This is why it’s key to establish a schedule or routine that will keep you motivated and purpose-driven. For this one, organization is essential. Whether it’s creating a to do list, staying active around the house or simply setting reminders on your phone, find what works for you and stick to it.

KATHRYN (Art Director)

“I still wake up at the same time as before, and I’ve been trying to use my commute-free mornings to form new good habits. Lately, I’ve been doing at-home workouts from POPSUGAR’s Youtube channel (#HipHopTabataVibes), then I’ll shower and do my eyebrows and a light makeup routine before sitting down with my laptop and a Nespresso cappuccino.”

2. Stay Social

It’s easy to feel disconnected when you’re social distancing. Even though there’s a lack of interaction, It’s essential to stay engaged and find creative ways to feel connected. One way our team is practicing this is through our Slack channels where we talk about what we’re up to, sharing updates on our furry friends and sharing what’s inspiring us! We also do virtual hangouts through Zoom and Google Hangouts! Keep it fun and remember that we’re all in this together.

“It’s so important for me to stay connected with my friends and family during this time. Some fun ways I’ve stayed social have been through Zoom happy hours and Facetime coffee dates!”

For the chef in the making:

LAURA (Art Director)

“I love exploring new recipes to try. It’s a fun way to pass the time and it helps that there’s a yummy reward at the end. Highly recommend Chrissy Teigen’s take on banana bread. So so so good. It’s so moist and yummy. I omitted the coco flakes since I didn’t have any and used dark chocolate chips.”
