Seek guidance from a professional.
Living a healthier lifestyle starts at home and with the decisions you make each day. But unless you’re already a fitness, nutrition, or health specialist, now’s a great time to find one to help you reset your life. You can find a wellness professional online who will either meet you in person or offer services virtually. Before you hand over a credit card, double-check their price, timeline, and reviews from former customers.
Did someone say at-home massage?
Anxiety relief, better sleep, more energy, and less pain are all great benefits of massage therapy, according to Prevention. If you are not quite ready to head out to the crowded streets, you might feel as though a relaxing massage is out of reach. Fortunately, ThaiMassage-NYC offers house calls with travel fees as low as $50.
Socialization is a crucial component of the human condition. But until herd immunity and vaccination levels have reached a safe level, you may not feel comfortable gathering in crowds. That’s okay. You can still get social with your friends and neighbors while staying safely socially distant. Now that the weather is warm, a backyard barbecue and late-night firepit may just be the ticket you need to re-forge your friendships. Zoom, Google Hangouts, and Facebook Messenger are all options to help you stay in touch if you don’t want to be within touching distance.
Give it a stretch.
Stretching feels good. If for no other reason than that, you should make a point of stretching your arms, back, and legs every day. But if you need more encouragement, there are many other perks. Better flexibility, improved blood flow, and increased range of motion are among them. If stretching yourself seems like too much work or if you are not sure how to go about doing a thorough job, you should consider the passive stretching that Thai massage is generally known for. While there is a lot more to a Thai massage than stretching, an experienced therapist can help you go beyond what you can do by yourself.
Visit a city park.
Whether you live in the city or the suburbs, having access to green space is great for your mood and your physical health. A short walk through nature has mood-enhancing benefits, and your local park likely has plenty of play areas for the kids. If the virus is still a major concern to you, the CDC says that being outdoors is safer than gathering inside.
DIY your facial.
If you’re ready to show your face out in public, a facial is a great way to look your best. You can use things like coconut oil and coffee grounds to exfoliate and re-energize. Other ingredients you can use include egg whites, lemon juice, bananas, avocado, and olive oil. You can even have a girls’ night in with your closest gal pals making your own facial scrubs, painting your nails, and daydreaming about concerts and bridal shows.
Master your mindset.
Last but most important, to look, feel, and be your very best, you have to change your mindset. The pandemic has taken a toll on all of us, but it’s not too late to look at it as an opportunity to grow. Maybe you’ve had a chance to do housework that you’ve let lapse thus far. Or perhaps, you spent more time with your family than ever. The point here is to look at the positives so that the negatives don’t bring you down.
Even if you don’t plan to fully rejoin society just yet, you can start to regain control of your life in ways that improve your overall health. The above tips, from getting a massage to rubbing coffee grounds on your face, might not be the first things that come to mind, but they are certainly small actions that will help you be the very best version of yourself.
