Do you feel like your life has drastically changed since COVID-19 began? Are you feeling frustrated, sad or even somewhat hopeless? If so, look no further because we’ve got you covered! Rather than feeling frustrated because of these difficult circumstances, use this time wisely to improve your life. Below we have compiled a list of our favorite recommendations to help you get out of your funk and feel better!
1. Eat healthy and learn new meals to cook! We know how easy it is to eat junk foods and not worry about what food we consume. However, now is the best time to learn how to cook delicious, healthy meals. Check out Tasty for some great recipes and even better instructions to follow. After all, it might be a risky idea to eat out at restaurants. So bring those amazing, gourmet restaurant meals to your own kitchen.
2. Organize and clean your house! This is one thing that is so easy to procrastinate on, but the difference between a clean and messy closet is incredible. You can take your time on this process. Start small - begin with your closet, then finish up your bedroom. After these two are complete you can do the kitchen and then other remaining parts of the house that need some TLC. Once everything is clean, you will feel like an entirely new person! Check out some of these videos and organizing tips from our vlogger friend Brittany Vasseur.
3. Get into a healthy workout routine! It’s extremely easy to feel lazy after being stuck in the house for a long time. Working out is a great way to feel productive. Also, the feeling after a workout is so awesome. Just ask Outdoor Voices founder Ty Haney -- endorphins are real! You don’t need an intense workout every single day. You can simply just go on a power walk or do a yoga class in your yard. Our favorite type of workout is the Popsugar Videos because they are so fun. We also LOVE Kayla Itsines No Equipment HIIT routines. Whichever workout you choose, make sure to keep up with it to feel better every day!
4. Spend time treating yourself! Now is a great time to pamper yourself. Make sure to moisturize every morning and evening. Throughout the day, you should drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. You can also work on your makeup routine so that once life gets back to normal you are ready to look great and see people. We know you’re probably frustrated that you can’t shop as easily, but you can still order products online. Check out Renzoe Box so that you can organize your makeup and enjoy a nice little pick me up gift.
Regardless of what you do, you must never forget to take care of yourself. This is a very hard situation that everyone is facing but we can either take care of ourselves or watch ourselves crumble. We are certain that these tips can help you feel somewhat normal again. Now go clean your closet, go for a power walk and give yourself that at-home facial!
