Spending too much time together can be just as harmful as not spending enough time together. Since experts saying that keeping a routine is very critical to maintain your mental health while self-isolating, you can also set hours every day: like 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. - when you are each doing your own thing unless there's an emergency.

The coronavirus pandemia has forced many people to work from home. So if your partner is working from home, it's very important to treat the situation as if they are at the office, and only disrupt them if it's essential. And if you still have a job and your partner doesn't, this is a time to show extra compassion.

When you feel like your stress levels are peaking, turn to mindful activities to de-escalate. Since you're stuck together because of pandemic, this is a time when it's important to reel back your emotions a little bit.Making your significant other feel insignificant by being angry or rude to them about your stress is not fair to them. They deserve to be treated in a loving and respectful way, which in the long term decreases your stress because the relationship will be.

It's much better to spend some time apart and then come together to actually do an activity together - cooking or watching a movie, instead to just hang out in the same room all day with little meaningful interaction.

Buy a few different drinks you prefer ( beer / cider / wine / liquor ) from a store in your area. Sip them and discuss your favorites. Dont forget to include snacks like cheese and crackers and sausages and cured meats to enhance the sampling fare.

Get some wine or any other preferred drink, pick a topic or theme, and paint or draw something. No judgment. Just time to be silly and try something new. You can also head to YouTube and find a painting tutorial to follow. Once your work is done, hang them up!
