The pandemic has been a tough time for many of us, and as the stress builds up, it becomes so important to find ways to release it healthily. That’s why us here at The Regreen are so passionate about our Aaaram Mat- it truly is a game changer for ultimate body and mind relaxation! Alongside that, we want to dedicate this blog space to give you weekly tips and advice to keep yourself healthy and productive through this season and beyond.
Today, our team member Taylor is going to share her 6 daily habits that will help keep yourself feeling refreshed and inspired during lockdown:
1. Deep breathing
We are all living in stressful times right now, and many of us experience heightened anxiety with everything going on. If you haven’t tried deep breathing yet, give it a go! Youtube has many different types of videos that you make enjoy- simply search up ‘deep breathing practice’. It allows you to center yourself to the moment and clear your mind. Many of us at The Regreen do this for 5 minutes before bed- trust us, your mental clarity and sleep will be greatly improved!
2. Reduce screen time before bed
3. Fresh air
With the amount of time spent indoors nowadays, many of us are starting to experience cabin fever. Fresh air can do wonders for your mental clarity and overall mood. Some of us don’t have the access to parks and other nature spots- but no worries! Set aside time each day, even if just a 10-minute walk around the block, to breathe in the outside air and feel alive. If this is not possible, crack open your window and recycle the air in your room to feel fresh.
I think it is fair to say the times we are living in will go down in the history books. If you don’t already, give writing a go- whether you write down your thoughts, whats happening around you, or even creative stories, writing can be so relaxing and therapeutic. It’s always fun to look back on in the future and see how you were doing during this season.
5. Routines and breaks
If you are studying or working from home, the repetition of each day can start to weigh you down- trust me I know! It’s easy to lose motivation to keep routines as sometimes it doesn’t feel as if there is a point. If you struggle with procrastination, or just feel uninspired, creating yourself a list/schedule can really help! By penciling in your tasks for the day, you have set your goals and are more likely to achieve them. Remember to take breaks, and log off when you are done for the day! Don’t take your work into your bed, that’s your resting space! If you want to get inspired, search up Alivia D’andrea on Youtube. She has awesome productivity tips that literally have transformed my days- highly recommend!
6. Something New
❤ Above all, taking time to look after yourself is #1. That looks different for each of us, but ensuring we create healthy habits is the key for long-term positivity and clarity. Remind yourself of the things you are thankful for and stay connected with others. It’s totally okay to not feel okay all the time, and if you’re struggling please reach out to those around you. Remember you are not alone, and we all have a duty to be kind to one another.❤ Stay optimistic, friends! We wish you happiness and health through this season, and if you enjoyed this post, stay tuned for more.
