Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

Important Life Factors
There’s never not a ‘right’ time to learn these 7 key factors of life. When you feel like you’re on top of the world or when you’re at the lowest of lows, acknowledging the 7 factors of wellness and understanding how to utilise their purpose to your personal life, will easily enhance the great times and allow you to pick up from the bad ones.   Each factor is just as important than the other, but some will be more relevant and more important in our day to day lives. There’s nowhere to say you have to be perfect at all 7, it’s just a guideline on how to live a healthy, happy and mindful lifestyle.

Don’t Put Yourself On Hold

When the odds are against you and you feel as though you’re not getting anywhere any time soon, don’t give up. This is a great time for growth, we just have to build a bit of courage and break through the barriers. This has been an incredibly hard time for us all. We’ve all had different coping mechanisms to deal with this (some much better than others but either way, we’re in it together) but with that being said, we’ve got through the worst of it. We can continue to move forward.  

During this pandemic, it is important that we are not losing ourselves in the midst of the madness. We need to use this as an opportunity to put our best foot forward so that when we start the ‘new normal’, we’re ready to hit the ground and start running at a steady pace 

It is imperative to your future self that you stick to a routine. If you have lost yours, then slowly try and build it back up. Having a dramatic change can have a negative impact on your mentality and can be physically exhausting. Make sure you’re setting your alarm as usual, schedule eating times, get changed and do things as you usually would. It’s impossible to make judgements on the next steps but having a routine in place will make it easier to adapt to the next stage.  

Stay healthy by eating regular nutritious meals, working out however works for you and making most of your time outside. Long walks are extremely effective for our fitness levels and mental health, so ensure that you are getting some fresh air and Vitamin D in order to avoid exhaustion and a major slump each day. 

Reflect and re-evaluate on what you really want for your future. We’ve had a considerable amount of time to gather our thoughts recently. It’s probably not the first thing you’d think to dobut considering we’re heading back to a ‘new normal’ we might as well take advantage of the opportunities that will arise.  

Be generous to yourself, rest when you need to and do all of the things that make you happy. It’s time that we are putting ourselves first and are focusing on our wellbeing during this uncertain time.  

Don’t stop making plans and aiming for your goals. It seems impossible right now, but it’s not! There are still plenty of opportunities for you to achieve your goals, but always ensure that you are putting yourself and your future first. It won’t be long until this is in the past and our lives will have returned to normal.  

We can either choose to view this as a negative experience, or we can say ‘the Covid-19 pandemic is where I put myself first and started to make life happen’.  

Don’t put yourself on hold.
