If you find yourself asking what day it is during the coronavirus lockdown, you aren't alone. According to a recent survey of 2,000 U.S. adults, the average person in this crisis forgets what day it is five times a week.
The survey, commissioned by snack bar company RXBAR, also found:
- 80% said every day is like the one before.
- 59% didn't even know what day it was when they filled out the survey.
- 65% said they've lost their motivation.
- 75% said they're living in sweat clothes and have given up "real clothes."
The good news, according to Study Finds, is that a full 50% say they're following an exercise program and 39% said they're sticking to a routine.
RXBAR also asked about the snacking habits of participants. According to the survey, 69% said they ate all their snacks before they planned, citing that having the snacks close at home, boredom, and dealing with stress gave them the munchies.
Unfortunately, 65% said they were mad at themselves for overindulging in food during the lockdown and opined that they would prefer healthier snack options such as fresh fruit and veggies and would try harder to snack healthier.
According to Stylist, practicing mindfulness can help us focus and concentrate during these unprecedented times.
"During times of uncertainty, it's important to take charge of things you can control and establish healthy eating habits and routines," Sarah Romotsky, director of healthcare partners at Headspace, told Stylist.
