Many people may find themselves struggling to remember what day of the week it is due to lack of schedules and responsibilities during quarantine.

Here are a few tips on how to keep track of the time and stay on top of everything.

Animal Crossing

It may seem like an odd suggestion, but “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” on the Nintendo Switch keeps track of the time and date while playing. By matching the location and time zone of each player, it is a foolproof way to remember your surroundings.


Another way to remember your day-to-day life is to keep a calendar. Fill the boxes with things to do each day and cross them out when the day is over.

Make a schedule

Try to give yourself objectives to accomplish each day and write them down. Whether it is an at-home workout, a homework assignment, or a Netflix episode, anything can be added in order to keep peace in your life.

Document when you send emails or submit files

When you complete homework assignments or emails, be sure to add the date in order to keep track of what has gotten done and when.

Set a reminder on your phone

Set an alarm each day at whatever time you would like, though it is suggested for when you wake up, with the day of the week with the alarm’s name. It may be overkill, but you won’t forget what day it is when you have to turn it off each day.

Ask. Your. Mother.

She always knows.

Check your phone when you wake up

This may be the simplest of the suggestions due to its nature. However, be sure to make an effort to remember what day it is when you check your phone. Do not just look at it and then forget as we all tend to do.

Keep a daily journal

Once you wake up for the day, whether it’s at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m., grab some paper and a pencil and jot down what your plans are for the day. Be sure to date it at the top and try to do it daily. This

way, when it’s week three of quarantine, you can go back through your entries and see where all of the time went.

Track your meals

Mentally or physically keep track of your meals by writing down what you have eaten that day. Try to keep your meals regular each day. Quarantine may mean less tasks, but it does not mean letting yourself fall into bad habits. Set aside time each day to eat in order to keep yourself on track.

Watch the news

Not only does this suggestion provide you with the date and time, it also informs you on what is happening in your world, country, state and town. Tune in to Mike DeWine’s daily news conference at 2 p.m. for news focused on Ohio.
