Tips for staying happy and healthy at home.
The global COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a wrench into virtually everyone’s 2020 plans.
While we’re all focused on trying to make ends meet and adjust to the “new normal” despite the social distancing measures still in effect across most of the world — not to mention the pandemic’s impact on the economy — we wanted to remind you not to overlook one of the most valuable assets of all: Your health, both physical and mental.
It’s all too easy to let your old exercise routine slip by the wayside when you’re focused on more pressing matters like paying bills and managing your child’s school day.
But you know the old saying, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way”? It’s true — we all need to make our health and happiness a priority. Especially in these challenging times.
If you’ve put “you time” on the back burner for the past few months, start small. Set aside 10-15 minutes for a walk, run, or even just sitting someplace quiet to read a book or listen to music. Make it a goal to get outside every day. It will boost your energy and help you to focus when it’s time to get back to work.
And if you’re among the millions of Americans that are now spending an unprecedented amount of time at home, you may also want to invest in your space by clearing out the clutter and livening things up with pictures, paint, or plants. It doesn’t have to be expensive — or extensive. Every bit helps!
