There’s no doubt this is a challenging time and self-quarantining shouldn’t add to the stress. Whether you’re staying inside with your significant other, multiple family members, or you’re solo—here are 45 things you can do to make the most out of it. Taking A Moment For Yourself Keep a quarantine diary. Jotting down your thoughts can help relieve stress, and years from now it will make an excellent read. You can also use the time to reflect on your favorite childhood memories and write about those. Set aside time for yourself. If you’re home with multiple family members, find an hour a day to escape.
In the past, I’ve mentioned how I’m not one for making New Year’s resolutions. I believe if you want to make a positive change, it shouldn’t take the clock striking midnight to make it happen. I do, however, like to make a list of goals (these are mine from 2019) along with small things I’d like to do at the start of the new year. These are anything from tiny improvements to my personal well-being (like updating my fitness regimen and drinking more water), to organizing and deep cleaning my apartment. Then I also make a point of including fun things that will bring more
I’ve never been one to shy away from a wellness treatment that has the potential to enhance my overall sense of well-being. When I was given the opportunity to try an at home IV infusion from Wlnss, I jumped at the chance. In the past I’ve had a few B12 shots, but those were nothing compared to having potent vitamins enter directly through my bloodstream. These past few weeks, I’ve been doing more cardio and lifting, and on top of that, I’ve been super busy and not drinking as much water as I should. So getting a vitamin drip couldn’t have come at a better
April is national stress awareness month, so I thought it was only fitting that we discuss various aspects of coping with it, and getting aligned with the universe. In the past I didn’t have the healthiest ways of dealing with stress and learning new approaches didn’t happen overnight. As bizarre as it may sound, it wasn’t until my mid-twenties that I learned to live in the moment. I used to spend my time thinking about the past and worrying about the future. When I moved to California, I became much more in touch with my spiritual self and that has led me to maintain a
The beginning of a new year is a great time to push yourself into starting a challenge that will test your perseverance, patience, and overall fitness ability. The journey for me began towards the end of 2018 when I wrapped up a 30 day hot yoga challenge. The feeling I got from it inspired me to start another, which was an ideal way to kick off the new year. Whether you’re thinking of trying hot yoga or you need motivation to get into the studio; my journey will help keep you inline with accomplishing the goals you set for yourself on January 1st. Why I
Back in November I thought about what I wanted to achieve for 2019. While 2018 was an amazing year both personal and career-wise, I wanted to plan out the upcoming year ahead of time. Instead of making a list of New Year’s resolutions, I created a list of New Year’s goals. The difference being that resolutions tend to be black or white, while goals can be steps that you can take to achieve your main objective. I thought long and hard and visualized what I wanted to change in my career, personal life, and in my relationships. Here’s what I came up with. Set aside
As a Type A person I thrive on organization and planning. I have never been able to do things spontaneously and that’s why I’m a big fan of goal planning. Whenever I think of something I’d like to achieve I’ll jot it down in my iPhone or in my planner. At the end of each month I’ll look over what I’ve written down and I’ll create a list of goals that I would like to achieve for the month ahead and when I want to accomplish them by. These are the goal planning tools I use: The SMART acronym: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely.
Before I was gifted the Simply Earth Essential Oils Recipe Box, my knowledge of essential oils was very minimal. I would add a few drops of eucalyptus or lavender to my diffuser at night and drift off to sleep. Over the last few years I’ve made a lot of changes in my life. I gave up eating meat, I try to avoid processed foods, and eat mainly organic. I’m always on the quest to live healthier and I continue to research new ways to improve my overall well-being, and that’s where Simply Earth comes in. I received the August essential oils recipe box and it
Hiking in Escondido Falls is one my favorite things to do in Southern California. Whenever I need to clear my head, I make the journey to go hiking on this trail to get away from the city. I enjoy putting on my favorite playlist that I created for drives to Malibu and cruising down PCH to clear my head. The entire excursion is about 4 miles round trip and takes around 1 to 2 hours to finish. Escondido Falls is located in Malibu and sits high in the Santa Monica Mountains. Upon arriving, you turn right onto Winding Way and spot the small parking lot
Once it becomes a little brighter out, we tend to want to tidy up our surroundings and make things a little neater. We organize our homes, maybe clean out our cars, or give our plants a long overdue watering. You may also check off the annual “spring cleaning” tasks that are on your list but it takes more than just vacuuming your living room, or deep cleaning your bathroom to refresh your life. It goes a lot deeper–something that you’ve been meaning to do because you know it will make you happy, but maybe you’ve been avoiding it, or you just haven’t gotten around to
