5 tips for self-care while in quarantine

While stay-at-home orders are starting to loosen for many of us around the country, we are all still fairly limited when it comes to what we can do — this means more time at home, and it may be this way for a bit longer.

If you’re starting to go stir-crazy, you’re definitely not alone. And, if you feel like your self-care routine has gone out the window, we’re showing you how to take care of YOU during the remainder of quarantine.

The best part? These self-care tips can be used for the long-term, even past quarantine, because self-care is a huge part of supporting optimal health.

 

5 Tips For Self-Care While in Quarantine

 

#1 Make Yourself a Nutritious Smoothie Daily

Clean eating is a great way to show yourself some love, so start your morning off right with a nutritious smoothie.

Try using unsweetened almond or coconut milk as your base and add in some fresh berries, a frozen banana, and a handful of dark leafy greens. Top it off with some superfoods like flax, hemp, or chia seeds for an added boost.

 

#2 Treat Yourself to an Evening Skin-Care Routine

Treat yourself to an evening skin-care routine every single night! Not only is it relaxing, but it’s a great way to take extra great care of your skin.

If you’re in need of a skin-care restock, try stocking up on some cleaner products like witch hazel and even coconut or avocado oil to use as natural moisturizers.

 

#3 Wind Down Your Evening With a Calming Golden Milk

After your skin pampering, whip up a calming, anti-inflammatory golden milk latte with some unsweetened coconut milk, turmeric, cinnamon, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. Sip and enjoy while reading a book to really set the tone for a relaxing evening.

 

#4 Take up a Hobby You’ve Wanting to Try For Some Time

Maybe it’s knitting, maybe it’s baking — whatever it is, now’s the time to use this extra time at home to try something new and take some time for you. Having some “me time” where you do something that makes you feel good is a wonderful act of self-care.

 

#5 Take Fifteen Minutes For Yourself Daily

Being home 24/7 can certainly make us all feel stuck in a rut, and it’s important that we all take some time for ourselves each day. Even if you can only set aside 15 minutes, take that time to practice some deep breathing or even a quick yoga sequence to help center your mind and body.

 

Make Self-Care a Priority

During this unusual time, make self-care a priority. It’s a great time to really lean into what your body needs to feel your best. So, be sure to make it your number one priority that you turn into a healthy habit you practice daily.
