Astronaut says routine is key for isolated living

Peake on Thursday (March 26) gave the public advice for getting through a period of confinement, much like his time spent in space.

Various astronauts appeared via a live stream put on by the European Space Agency (ESA), offering the public well wishes and tips such as maintaining a work-life balance.

NASA astronaut Tom Jones said during quarantine before a mission, he would create a "daily list of things I wanted to get done before I actually blasted off earth and that's what I've been doing with this isolation period is trying to get some priorities established, work on the projects that are most important to me and then set up a list for the next goal."
