2. Adhere to a routine for better health

The wellness resource UCI Health notes that lack of structure has been a common side effect of social distancing. But people should adhere to a routine even if they're working from home or have been laid off or furloughed.

A routine with established mealtimes can help people avoid random snacking that can contribute to weight gain.

3. Make time for exercise

Exercise is essential to maintaining a healthy weight. Social distancing has given many people more free time than they know what to do with.

Fill the boredom with exercise, utilizing online tutorials to engage in weight-free exercises if necessary. Go for daily strolls around the neighborhood or, if possible, purchase some home gym equipment.
