ELLE.com also spoke to psychologist (and ADAA member) Mary K. Alvord to get her expert advice on what we can all do to stay productive and calm. "One of my areas is resilience," she explains. "The core of resilience is the thinking and the belief that while you can't control a lot of aspects of your life, you can control many aspects of your life. Focus on: What can you control and what can you do?" For those working from home, she suggests varying your activity. In a workplace, breaks are natural: You get a cup of coffee, you talk to somebody, you move your body. When at home, it's essential to schedule those pauses in and pace yourself to stay productive.
