CODE Coventry – codestudents.co/support
CODE Leicester – codestudents.co/group

Each week focuses on a new topic, and starting from the 2nd week in February, we are tailoring them more around what you said you need support with.

This week’s topic was Routines and how they can help you with your mental health, but don’t worry if you couldn’t make the session as we will give you some hints and tips here and also share the content for you to download and work through in your own time!

Why Routines are Important for everyone:

  • They Create Structure
  • We know what to expect
  • It makes us feel safe
  • They give us a sense of accomplishment
  • They let us know how we are doing
  • It’s an indication to others how we are doing
  • It Moderates impulsiveness

To create a basic routine, take it day by day to start. Look at what you need to do that day, ensure you factor in time for meals and exercise. Once you have nailed your day by day, you can look at week on week.
