Our mind and body have noticed a big change since quarantine, meaning we need to take better care of ourselves than ever before to ensure a healthy body and mindset.
Whilst it can be easy to lose all sense of routine, taking this time to better ourselves will leave us coming out the other side healthier, happier and more appreciative of the world.
Look After Your Skin
Whilst in quarantine, this is the perfect time to get a good skincare routine going. Now is the time to get educated on skincare and find products that you can continue to use after quarantine is done.
Looking after the skin and having a natural, healthy glow can make us feel more confident in our own skin. Exfoliate, cleanse and use a CoQ10 toner before applying serum and moisturizing.
Staying indoors can make it harder to find the motivation to exercise, but don’t let this hold you back. Exercising will make your body feel better, and now is a better time than ever to get your body in the shape you want it to be.
There are no more excuses – you have enough time to do anything you want, so whether this is starting yoga or doing home exercise routines, quarantine is offering you the opportunity to get fitter and healthier.
If you have a regular routine at home and incorporate exercise into this, you will notice your body feeling better and your mind feeling more active.
Keep a Routine
It is all too easy to lose all sense of a routine when you aren’t leaving the house or working. If you do work from home, this can make maintaining a routine easier. If you don’t, now is the time to make a routine that works for you.
Sleep just as you usually would and don’t stick to late nights and late mornings. This will make you feel lazier and you will lose more daylight. Take the opportunity to exercise outside once a day if you can.
If not, try to get out in your garden if you have one. Have three meals a day and keep yourself busy with new hobbies and skills. There are so many options whilst in quarantine, whether working on your own business, a new art project, learning a new language or discovering new books.
Chef Up More
Quarantine is making it easier than ever to turn to take-out and eating unhealthily. Whilst it is okay to treat yourself occasionally, and getting a takeaway with the whole family can be the closest thing to going to a restaurant, try not to rely on this too much.
Cooking will allow you to make healthier, more organic meals which are better for the whole family. Take this time to really get to know your ingredients and make meals you’ve never made before.
With a couple of weeks in quarantine, you can improve your cooking skills massively.
Check-in On Your Mental Health
If your mental health isn’t great, your body isn’t going to feel amazing either. Quarantine is going to affect even those with the best mental wellbeing, as we can’t do what we want or see our loved ones.
Whilst this is a measure that must be obeyed, it doesn’t make it any easier. Check-in on how you are feeling and be honest with yourself. Talk to your loved ones and practice self-care routines on those days you are struggling with your mental health.
Follow this guide to help you feel better in your mental health, as well as your physical health. Care for your skin, keep a routine, exercise, cook healthy meals, and take care of your mental health to make your body feel better in quarantine.
