CNBC quotes Lora Park in a story on how people can find motivation during the COVID-19 pandemic.​ She discusses a range of strategies, including creating rituals, rewarding yourself and reducing the pressure you put on yourself. “Rituals don’t have to be this elaborate thing, it could just be a very small routine that you do every day,” said Park. “For example, putting your workout clothes beside your bed so you can exercise first thing in the morning is considered a ritual. So is taking time to meditate or relax once you get your kids set up for the school day or walking your dog after work.”
