5 Things to do to stay positive during Social Distancing/ self Isolation...

27 Mar 2020

Hello everyone, 

I hope you are all staying safe and well in this uncertain time. I thought I would share with you some ideas of how to stay positive and organised when self Isolating and social distancing. We all know it can get a little boring at home and will most likely test our mental health, however these things are just some little things you can do to try and stay positive and keep organised and a routine when you are at home and not at work...

1. Have a set Wake up time 

This is so important, not only for your mental health but also when we do go back to work, it will make it easier for you to go back into your routine. Of course at the weekend set times for a lie in but from Mon-Friday, try to wake up around the same time everyday. if you are waking up at 11am everyday, you will probably find you are less productive and feel alot worse. I tend to wake up around 8/ 8:30 if I can on the weekdays and feel a lot more productive than when I lay in. I also feel a lot more tired when I keep snoozing my alarm...

2. Keep a morning routine

This is such great way to stay positive when you are maybe working from home, waking up at a healthy time in the morning. I then make sure I always make my bed and head downstairs to grab a coffee. I will spend around an hour writing down my to do list for the day, replying to emails and maybe writing a blog post or finishing off some work that needs doing. I then have breakfast and get ready for the day as normal. This morning routine always makes me feel so much better when I stick to it and do it regularly and makes me feel really motivated for the day.

3. Always get dressed

As much as it is lovely to stay in your pj's all day. Make sure you try to get up and dressed Monday to Friday. If you would like to see some cosy working from home outfit ideas, look out for a video coming soon on my Youtube channel. It doesn't have to be getting ready into a suit and jacket, but getting out of your pj's and putting a comfy outfit on is always a good idea. 

4.  Do an at home Workout

I know its probably easier said than done as I do find it hard to be motivated without a gym. However, there are so many amazing workout apps out there and you can find so many videos on youtube for at home workouts. You never know, you might even find an old workout dvd in the loft. I did a workout in the garden the other day and it was so refreshing. it just makes you feel that little bit better for being active and getting a little workout in. I love watching Krissy Cela's youtube videos and Insta videos. I love adding them to a saved file on Insta and following the videos. My sister has also just signed up to Alexandra's Happy body which also looks like a lot of fun...

5. Read 

This is probably one of the best things to do during this time. Sometimes I find myself spending far too much time on my phone which is not good and I feel really negative after. Reading makes you feel so much more positive and accomplished, especially reading some self help books. This could be a time to really focus and develop yourself. one of my favourites is The Secret. Whenever I find my self in a state of panic or anxiety, I will make sure I read this, it always makes me feel so much better. If you would like an in depth book review please do let me know as I would love to do one.

I really hope you enjoyed this post and it gave you some tips on how to stay positive when self isolating and social distancing.
