The world is now a part of the largest ever self-imposed isolation, for good reason. It hasn’t been easy for many to get used to their own company.

Thankfully, this isn’t the first time anyone has had to spend a lot of time on their own.

Jon Bailey is experienced in submarines and decided to share his experiences with us so we can all better deal with our quarantines.

He began by describing a few basics.

Baily explained that a routine is of utmost importance. It helps you keep track of time and find a new normal.

Next, Bailey advises folks to seek out some valuable me-time in the midst of this madness.

Plan your meals. Include cheat days, but make sure you have some healthy meals planned as well.

Exercise should also be in the mix. Serviceman Bailey says it’s crucial to your health and wellness—and great for your mental health too!

Parents will also love the next part: clean your house and room!

And of course, you can’t forget keeping up with friends, family, and loved ones.

Try to keep things light whenever you can, of course.

Bailey ended the thread and offered to help his friends at the National Health Service, the UK’s health service.

Fellow Twitter users were grateful for his advice, and some also pitched in.

This was such great advice! Once this passes, this seems like great advice for anyone withstanding a long period of loneliness.
