Just How Gritty Have You Allowed Yourself to Get During Self-quarantine?

Many of us are working from home, at home - but not working, home schooling, housekeeping, and more. The complexity of life is magnified now more than ever as everything we do from eating, sleeping, working, exercising, and just trying to relax is taking place within the confines of our living spaces. It is reasonable to assume that some routine is going to slip and we will have to work twice as hard or fast to make up for the misstep or failed step because we just don’t feel like it.
