Navigating life in the midst of the global pandemic is extremely hard. Not only is anxiety on the rise, maintaining responsibilities related to your job, business, and self-care can be tough when you throw in adequate social-distancing and the strain of Covid-19 on society as a whole. Many moms have expressed frustration with a new normal that includes being tasked with keeping little humans alive, productive, and engaged-especially if they have school-aged children who require remote learning.
As a woman-owned & mom-owned company, we wanted to do our part to spread internet hugs and provide tips for mastering self-care and maintaining your sanity during the pandemic. You can find our top ten tips below! Feel free to drop a comment and let us know how you're taking care of you!
- DIY Spa Day
When it comes to pampering yourself with a spa day, many people immediately think "massage" but the beauty in spending more time at home means you have the ability to indulge without the price tag and try out everything from homemade face mask recipes like these using avocado, to an epsom salt bath soak, and a fresh summer-inspired mani/pedi!
2. Peaceful Passion Project
Some people find things like knitting or painting therapeutic, but there's nothing like the ability to stop, reset, and create something beautiful! We found these amazing mini-projects that allow you to create and find your inner happy!
3. Quarantine Picnic & "Distance-Friendly" Activity
With states easing pandemic-related restrictions, it's important to do everything you can to stay safe and healthy. However, getting sunlight, and fresh air can do wonders for your skin, mood, and overall wellbeing. If you have the ability to exercise, plan a picnic, or leverage great weather to stay outdoors and out of crowds a related activity might be a great stress-relief!
4. Learn a new skill or take a digital class
One of the great things that came from social-distancing was the ability for almost everyone to have a bit' more time to self-reflect. If you have the time, learning a fun new skill, hobby, or signing up for a digital class could be a great addition to your self-care routine!
