Even if it’s just into comfort clothes, this will help you feel more productive and less in a rut.
Do Your Hair/Makeup
Even if you’re not going anywhere this can help you feel ‘normal’ in a very chaotic time. People also often feel relaxed when doing hair or makeup and you deserve that.
Eat New Healthy Recipes
If you can, eat a variety of food and try different recipes. This will give your day variety and keep your body feeling healthy.
Get Some Fresh Air
Fresh air will help you not feel so cooped up or ‘stuck’ in your home. Getting outside would be best even standing at a window will be beneficial.
Try doing new activities or bring back old ones. Getting creative is a great way to keep your spirits up and your mind relaxed.
Everyone everywhere is talking about COVID-19. Turn off your devices and get some well-deserved time away.
Even though we can’t go visiting, make sure you stay connected. A good way is video chatting or even just a phone call. This will help you and the people you are talking to feel less isolated.
