Right now the world feels very strange, we are surrounded by drama and it's so easy to get swept up in all the madness. But slowly, it will all start to settle and day to day life will be restored!
Its super normal for our minds to run ahead and try to predict what is going to happen but right now, the best thing for our minds is to try and relax!
I know this sounds almost impossible, but I promise we can make it easier and there are things we can do to distance ourselves from what is causing us stress, for example deactivating news notifications on our phones, reducing time spent on social media or taking a timeout from group discussions about all the issues!
How often have you moaned about not having time to do personal admin & giving yourself the excuse of 'i'll do that tomorrow. Now is your time to focus on you and get it done! Below is our top tips.. which one do you love the most?
1. Read, Read & Read Again
Reading might be part of your daily routine, some of you might have collected a lovely pile of books which are now catching dust, whichever one you are pick up a book & get lost in it!
2. Pamper Time
Grab the coconut oil out & stick on a hair mask, you'll feel 10x better in the morning with your luxurious new locks! Grab your fave bubble bath or those bright pink bath bombs you got for Christmas. Find a lovely candle. Get a cuppa and relax in the bath. Anything to make you feel & look amazing, do it. Glow up Cutie.
3. Get Outside & Breathe
Whilst we're allowed out once a day, get out! A walk before work, lunch time stroll or post work wander, just get out in the fresh air it does everyone a world of good!
4. Garden Workouts
Get your heart beating in your garden, there are so many AMAZING instagram live workouts available at the moment, get involved! Need a booty band? We have you sorted, grab it whilst you can!
5. Find a Fave Podcast
Our new fave thing to listen to whilst having a stroll, there is something for everyone! Checkout spotify & scroll through the amazing selection from comedies to mindfulness - everything you'll ever want to hear.
6. Facetime Your Loved Ones
Workout a time to chat to your girls daily, whether its at lunch, cooking dinner together in the evening or even a morning cuppa before work!
FaceTime, phone call, Whatsapp - whichever works for you...There's even a great app called House Party where you can chat 'face to face' whilst playing games!
7. Keep A Diary
Write down your thoughts, what you did, let it all out on a piece of paper! This is a strange old time but one to reflect one when times get better!
8. Netflix and chill (literally chill out girl)
Log on and find something to commit to. Watching series continuously may not be good for our brains, but there’s no harm in delving into a new series or documentary.
