We're officially in the first week of practicing social distancing. Here are 5 ways to stay mindful and maintain positive mental health while facing this shift in our daily routine.
1. Stay Hydrated
Do you sip a little extra with a straw? We certainly do! Increase your water intake with a glass straw, like our wide glass straw here, for a refreshing, pure taste. Tip: we love to add fresh fruit slices like lemons, limes, and even cucumber, to add extra flavor to boost your daily water intake
2. Get Active: Engage in healthy mindful activities like yoga, meditation, and at-home workouts. Avid gym user? There's plenty of free streaming workouts that are being added daily. One of our favorites: Active by PopSugar
3. Practice Self Care: Treat yourself by pouring a bubble bath, lighting a candle, throwing a facemask on, and maybe indulge in some red wine. Tip: add some essential oils like lavender to add a peaceful and soothing mood.
4. Engage Your Mind:Skip the streaming with mind-boosting activities such as reading and writing. Tip: Write a beautiful handwritten letter to a friend, family member, or co-worker to offer some surprising inspiration and cheer.
5. Boost your Creativity: With extra time spent at home, take the perfect opportunity to learn something new. You can engage in free online tutorials, craft at home, or whip up a new recipe from your favorite cookbooks.
