Spending More Time Outside
After being cooped up for the last year and a half, it’ll be great to get out, get some fresh air, and spend some quality time enjoying nature.
Being outside revitalizes the mind and body, and admiring the scenery is one of the best ways to relax. It’s great to be able to engage in some of my favorite activities once again: birdwatching and hiking. I will also be trying out a new yoga course; exercise is a fantastic way to physically improve, get rid of unwanted bodily toxins, and relieve pandemic stress! To top it all off, I’m looking forward to finding my inner Zen with some Bonsai gardening.
Spending a little time in the sun never hurt anybody!
Revamping My Wardrobe
One of the first things I’m doing is replacing my wardrobe. Wearing the same clothes has become exhausting and made me feel bland, which I’m sure I’m not alone in.
To freshen up, it might be a good idea to get rid of a chunk of your wardrobe and go shopping for a new look. And rather than throwing away the clothes you don’t want, you could give them away to charity; it feels incredibly rewarding to know that you’ve helped people in need.
Before going out and dropping loads of money, though, you should experiment with some new outfits, so you’ll know what to look for in advance. Now is the time to try something innovative and creative!
So, get all of your outfits together and decide which need to go. From there, you can go on a shopping spree with some of your closest friends and have a ball at the mall.
Treating Myself to A Much-Needed Mini Facelift
Thanks to quarantine, we’ve all been seeing our reflections a lot more, whether in the bathroom mirror or on a Zoom call. Unfortunately, though, seeing ourselves all the time can make even our most minor insecurities stick out like a sore thumb.
One of the best ways to take care of these imperfections is to get a mini facelift, which is exactly what I’m doing! Unlike a facelift, which takes care of everything from the top of the head to the neck, a mini facelift is great for the lower half of the face. That’s where I need it most: my lips, cheeks, and double chin, which have all worsened since the start of quarantine.
The mini facelift is also less invasive than a normal facelift, and the recovery is nowhere near as long, so I won’t have to be inactive for another month healing when I could be travelling!
Seeing The World
After being inside for so long, I’ve gotten tired of my surroundings. I also haven’t been able to see my family, which has been hard. Post-quarantine will be the perfect time to rekindle my relationships with my loved ones!
Plus, I can go wherever I’d like, like a new state, or even a new country. I’m thinking Greece—it has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, not to mention delicious food!
If you’re also looking forward to travelling, you should do your research beforehand, and consider learning the local language if it’s foreign. Be sure, too, to consider the costs of food, lodging, sightseeing, and travel; there are plenty of helpful phone apps that can calculate expenses and help you find solid hotel deals.
Above all, though, I’m looking forward to camping with my closest friends. I’ve never roasted marshmallows before, if you can believe it, so I can’t wait!
Switching Up My Diet
The pandemic has caused so many people anxiety, and like me, you may have turned to food for comfort. With gyms and offices closed, you’ve probably put on a couple of extra pounds—I know I have.
But even now, it’s not too late to switch up your diet. In fact, it’s always a good time to try a healthier meal plan so that you can not only look better but feel fantastic.
Beyond affecting your physical appearance, certain diets can affect your emotional regulation. Unhealthier diets also lead to an increased chance of developing life-threatening diseases.
So, it’s important to buy nutritious foods that will strengthen your immune system and treat the rest of your body right. One of the best diets to try is “pescatarian,” which entails eating fish as your only source of meat. Fish is rich in Omega-3, a fatty acid that is good for your heart and has anti-inflammatory properties.
I can’t wait to get out and see the world again once this horrible pandemic is finally over. You might even catch me singing and dancing in the street!
