Recently, it feels like you can’t open your computer or phone without hearing more bad news. The heaviness of current events can be hard to digest and at times feel inescapable. During moments like this, it’s important to take time in the day to focus on your mental health and happiness. Just doing a simple task can take our mind to a better place - and showing yourself a little love is always a good idea. We put together a few of our favorite things to do to release endorphins and lower cortisol levels – read on to find out more!
Take advantage of being home and indulge in a face mask or a hair mask – or both (for those with more damaged strands, it’s a perfect opportunity to let your hair mask soak all day)! It may not feel like much, but glowing skin and shiny hair always makes us feel just that much better.
Elle Woods said it best – “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy!”…we won’t finish the rest. Without your daily commute, take the extra time in your day to commit to an exercise routine. There are so many amazing (and free) resources for at-home workouts, from yoga to HIIT and more. You can even get your kids in on the fun (and get out their energy)!
We’ve already touted the importance of Vitamin D– it’s an essential vitamin for good health and happiness. Take a break from work, turn off the news, throw on a good podcast and get outside. It’s the perfect way to break up your day and give your brain a moment to relax.
What better way to forget about your struggles than to get lost in someone else’s? Pick up that book you’ve been meaning to read and dedicate at least 20 minutes to it daily.
Is it just us, or does everyone feel happier with a fresh coat of polish on their nails? Just because we can’t get to the salon doesn’t mean nails need to suffer. Bust out your nail file and favorite shade of polish – the brighter, the better!
In our everyday lives, taking time for a bath often feels indulgent. Who has time to soak in a tub when there’s laundry to do, mouths to feed and emails to respond to? Since life has slowed down for most of us, it’s the perfect time to light a candle, put on some music, grab some essential oils or Epsom salts and forget about, well, everything.
