keep a schedule. get up at a set time, eat meals at a set time, go to bed at a set time... DO NOT DRIFT through the days. It's not a vacation.

Plan an enjoyable activity... game, movie, get outside in the yard (not with a group of people over 10.)
Fix snacks... limit how much they or yourself can have.
Plan physical activities especially for children... if you just sit around you won't sleep well which means your mind will worry about what you can not control.
Focus on what you CAN control... look up new recipes that will stretch your food or find substitutes for what you are out of. I get at least one text a week asking what to replace what with.
