Would you believe me if I told you that I regularly buy myself flowers to lift myself up? It’s true! The vibrant colors and fresh smell really puts a smile on my face, especially during the cold winter months that seem to draaaaag on. What do you do to brighten your (or someone else’s) day?
I thought this would be a good time to talk about how we can put a positive spin on what is happening in the world right now.
My honey and I are doing the best we can to stay calm, healthy and positive. Here’s a reminder of a few things that we all have control of right now:
-How much sleep we get. Sleep is so important to keep us healthy. I always shoot for 7-8 hours a night.
-Exercise and movement is so good for lifting you up, especially now.
-Yoga and meditation will help keep you calm and mindful of how you’re feeling.
-Healthy eating is a game changer! Try a few new recipes that you’ve been thinking about now that you’re homebound a bit more.
-Send kind messages and write uplifting posts on social media instead of negative thoughts.
-Laughter is SO good for you because it releases feel-good hormones and endorphins. Try watching a funny movie, that always helps me feel better.
-Give extra lovin’ to your pets and kiddos, maybe a bit more than usual.
Another great thing about being on shutdown:
You can catch up on your favorite Netflix show, watch a masterclass, watch a hair tutorial or take a new online course. You can also spend some time reading or writing.
