How to beat the self-isolation blues
Struggling with social distancing? Me too. As much as I'd love to go get brunch with my besties, that's just not a reality right now. But I'm here to tell you the best ways to make lemonade with some sour lemons.
Connect with others.
Even when we're in self-isolation, we're never truly alone. We always carry our loved ones with us wherever we go. And reaching out to them now for some extra support is super important. Writing cards is one great way to stay connected with friends and family. Whether you send them out through the mail, via text pictures, or not at all, it'll help you feel less alone during this challenging time.
Have something to do.
Staying busy is key right now to prevent each day from feeling monotonous. Try to find something to focus on be it a hobby or a home project. Maybe something could use a fresh coat of paint, or it could be time to fix that broken cabinet. Or, perhaps, it's just starting to read that book that's been sitting on your beside table. Whatever it is, self-isolation is the time to get going!
Being active is so important now, after all, no one wants to gain the quarantine-15. But seriously, getting some exercise will help your brain and body refresh. So, go for a walk, do some yoga, or find some home workouts online. I have some of my favorites talked about here. Getting your blood flowing is important so that you can achieve whatever your quarantine goals are.
I hope this helped to inspire you and lift your spirits a little more. You can always reach out to me on Instagram if you want someone else to say hi to!
