Tips for coping with self-isolation
Times are hard and we are being faced with a incredibly difficult task, we have been told to self isolate and social distance. Being told not to do something that is embedded into our DNA can be difficult ,but fear not.
Here at Bubble & BOOM Cosmetics we care about your well-being, mental health and self care. This guild is some friendly advise on way that may help you cope with times where you must self isolate.
First and foremost, remember that the physical distance currently between you, your family, your friends and your colleagues does not mean that you are alone. People want to hear from you, just as much as you need social contact too. So, pick up the phone, video call or message those who you are close to – for your well-being and for theirs too.
This pandemic will pass and that's the main thing to focus on.
We live in a world full of technology - embrace it
Human beings need connection. This is a necessity, and something to prioritise at this time. We are in the age of the internet, and technology can really help us to keep in touch with the people we are close to:
Set up Whatsapp or Facebook groups for your family, friends and work colleagues
Book in a daily phone call with someone, as hearing a human voice can be more enriching than seeing a message or text
Try video calling as seeing someone’s face can make all the difference
Zoom party's can be so much fun
Relax & keep your grooming up
Taking a long soak with a beautiful bath bomb (hint hint) can be a great way to relax, they are packed with so many relaxing oils, we also recommend lighting candles during your bath to set a mood for relaxation. Reading in the bath is a fantastic way of relaxing for myself..
I would also suggest using a CBD aromatherapy bath bomb for a mega chilled out bath.
or grab a face mask (the cream type) and some cucumbers and get your chill out on!
We know there's no reason to get dressed but try to anyway, do you hair and make up. Do what you usually do...
Keeping a tight routine will help you cope, and while sleeping during this pandemic has become somewhat difficult we advise you try to go to bed and get up at the same time everyday. Even if you don't sleep you will still be resting.
Maintaining good habits when your usual routine has changed can provide you with a sense of security. In a time when things feel out of control, it can help you to feel that there is some structure that you can put in place.
Get your workout DVD's on! or pop over to Youtube there's loads on there, try and hit 30 minutes of working out each day. It really will boost your mood and motivation. If you need a change of scenery then go for a walk, jog or run.
Do something different, start a new hobby
Covid helped with with my business, when I had nothing to do I would work on new ideas and plans, a friend of mine is learning Japanese and I couldn't think of a better time then now to do something new. With all this time on your hands its time to focus on yourself for a little while.
