Self-care made simple

Self-care made simple

The cherry blossom is out but we’re staying in (our 2km radius).

If there’s one thing we’re sure about given the current circumstances, it’s that self-care and looking after your mental and physical health during the lockdown is the best way to keep buoyant.

Here’s our self-care recommendations for when you find yourself at home indoors for longer than expected.

For me, it’s keeping a routine as much as possible - be it a zoom fitness class of a morning or a strong coffee. This really helps me start my day off right! Taking 5 to stretch makes all the difference. 

There’s no greater feeling than getting out into that beautiful weather and breathing. Spending time in the garden has probably been the most enjoyable for me - the olive tree is now full of black olives! If you have no outside space of your own, order flowers from your local florist and bring some colours indoors. I’ve opted for tulips and eucalptyus sprigs.

The news intake can be overwhelming so limit it if you can. Instead opt for listening to music that makes you feel good.

Books are my saving grace. If you’re not sure what to pick up, Books Upstairs are wrapping up and sending surprise bundle packages. A wonderful and speedy service, so appreciated in these times!

I’ve been listening to The Futurist, 'Super Soul' by Oprah and Angela Scanlon’s 'Thanks a Million'. Podcasts are a fantastic means of escape for an hour or so.

I've been staring at my walls, flicking through inspiring interior books like Kitchen Kulture - courtesy of my good friend Carla - and contemplating a kitchen renovation. Granted, changes might be delayed but they’ll be worth the wait! For post-corona makeover ideas and inspiration, check out our 'Spaces' board on Pinterest.

Thanks to zoom, calls with friends and family are back! Book in regular catchups with everyone you're missing and stay in touch.

It's all about finding little pleasures in the simplest of things!
