Tell me again - "What day is it?!?"


"What day is it, again?" It seems there are only 3 days of the week now: Today, Yesterday and Tomorrow. Their specific names allude you.

If you find your days blurring together - you're not alone. These stay-home days mean lots of confusion about just which day of the week it is. Therapist Lori Vann explains that slight dullness in your brain.

"1. You are probably spending way too much time on social media.

2. You're not having to concentrate the same way you used to because we don't have to remember things when there's nowhere to go and nothing to do."

You may also find yourself forgetting even the simplest of details. Van says, "Some of it is for lack of schedule. You lose track of time when you don't have those indicators. And we know with our brain - if you don't use it---you're gonna lose it."

Vann continues, "The Exhaustion from working from home is that people are staying at their lap tops longer and they're not getting up to take breaks." She suggests you walk for half an hour a day and eat well - exercise and nutrition feed the memory. Try to keep a morning schedule as if you were going to the office and get away from your laptop when you can.
