- It’s common and totally normal to feel afraid and stressed during a pandemic or outbreak but taking the time to step away from the noise and focusing on yourself can help ease those feelings. The whole world is in lot of stress and panic right now but I also feel that this time provides us a massive opportunity to focus on your self-care. There are a lot of things that you can do at home which will help you concentrate on your health, motivate you and make your quarantine fun. So, here are a few tips on how you can practice your self-care routine staying at home.
1. Fuel Your Body with Healthy Foods
While stocking up on groceries, it may be tempting to buy a lot of packaged foods that you will probably enjoy eating more. However, make sure you’re choosing options that will fuel your body and help you to maintain a healthy immune system. To prioritize your self-care routine in the time of quarantine, you must include veggies, onions, carrot, ginger, soups, chicken, lentils etc., in your meals. This will help you maintain your diet too.
2. Turn on the Music and Start Dancing
Get your sweat on, move to the beat and have fun. This is best thing to maintain your self-care. Let your body move. It will lift your mood and also help you to remain calm and healthy in this stressful situation
3. You can become a Bookworm
Reading broadens your mind and also improves your vocabulary. As you focus in on your self-care during quarantine, now is a great time to bury your nose in an inspiring or uplifting book. I love reading autobiographies of personalities, and even some fiction books. What are your favourite reads?
