And yes, you can enjoy your quarantine. We are not going to deny what the situation is because we all know that these are very difficult days in which we must respect the quarantine.
This situation is what it is, and unfortunately none of us can change the facts at hand, but what we can do is choosing how we experience this obligation. Between you and me, even though this time is disrupting our normal routines, isn’t it true that all of us at one point or another has dreamt of staying home for a few days? Well, now we have the opportunity to make the most out of this quarantine. Take notes :)
Get organized and organize your days.
The first couple of days are probably a similar feeling we have on the weekends. Meaning you’re in pajamas, eating popcorn, watching series, but after these days, having a little organization will help you not feel that the days are so long and will make you feel more productive.
We have a great opportunity to distribute our time and manage it however we want. Let’s not waste it. Start by defining time slots for your cleaning, your breakfast, and meals, for work, leisure, study or learning time, and of course for resting.
Finish or continue what you have half done, be it a book, a course, an online workshop. If you have nothing pending, it is a good time for you to choose some interesting online training or self-improvement courses. These courses can be related to your profession to help you improve your business or work or it can be for yourself such as an online painting course, photography course, cooking classes, it can be whatever you want.
Family time and time for you.
Maybe in your house you are alone or maybe you live with your parents, with your partner, with friends or family, take advantage to enjoy these days with them. Sometimes we live rushing and leave personal relationships aside, so take this time to have some quality time together and to enjoy it yourself.
A little cleaning
Don’t forget to take advantage to do more thorough house cleaning. You can start by organizing the cabinets and dressers, even deep cleaning those drawers that accumulate papers, notes and a thousand other things. Then sort them, and donate, sell, recycle, or throw away these items.
Give yourself a little enjoyment during this time. Take the opportunity to make yourself a complete home spa that includes: a relaxing bath with salts and candles, scrubs, face creams, serums, and soaps. When you’ve finished the bath section of your personal relaxation, end it with a good manicure and pedicure. Finish that Netflix or HBO series that you like so much or re-watch your favorite movie for the millionth time.
Don’t forget to eat well and to take the opportunity to make homemade recipes and enjoy it to the max by eating the dishes slowly and with pleasure. It may be that after several days at home you notice that you are a little less hungry, choose nutritious recipes and increase your defenses such as buts, citrus, and vegetables.
Virtually everyone has a busy life so take this opportunity to rest. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a nap if you feel like it or simply rest on the sofa with a good book. Even if you don’t sleep, being stretched and relaxed will benefit your body and mind. It is also a good time for you to start a personal journal and if you still do not, try to meditate, you can do it online with guided meditations.
Although it may not seem like it, it is a perfect time to make your purchases online. You now have time to enjoy filling your cart without any rush and additionally, Maria Pascual makes it easier for you because, until new notice, the shipping is free. Take advantage and pamper yourself with some beautiful pieces, for the pleasure of taking care of yourself.
In addition, your morale will rise and you will feel stronger and with more energy. Even if you are at home, take care of your image because it really will make you feel better.
Do you know that in moments of crisis at a historical level, more red lipstick is being sold? Well, give yourself a Maria Pascual piece and enjoy it.
Thanks for being here, see you next Thursday :)
