Make your bed first thing when you get up. Stand up straight. Comb your hair. Dress in clean clothes. Don’t spend the day in pajamas.
Make a daily schedule and stick to it. It should include brain work, physical work and exercise. Do half an hour of calisthenics at the same time every day, perhaps while watching the news. Keep your muscles tuned; add an aerobic routine.
You may be doing your regular work online. If not, undertake a project—start to learn a language, say. Take an online college course—something tough enough to absorb your mind.
