  2. Keep as many of the things from your normal routine the same in your new routine.
  3. Create projects that you can focus on and look forward to.
  4. Phone as many of your friends and family as you can for a chat. Speak to them face to face via Face-time or Skype.
  5. Plan the things you want to do in the future so that you have something to look forward to.

Your mind is the most important and powerful asset you possess. You can program it to work for you and you will become mentally stronger and happier.
