Being consistent in everything you do will definitely improve your life. Unfortunately, too many coronavirus-impacted individuals are inconsistent in their daily routine. Being consistent in life is as simple as developing a routine. Instead of waking up and doing whatever needs to be done. Experts recommend a routine. For example, wake up grab a cup of warm tea or coffee, relax about 15 minutes before moving forward. The caffeine in tea and coffee will give you the boost needed to perform your chores and errands.
