Self care ideas for lockdown 2.0
We all need a little self-care right now; The UK has just entered its second lockdown, the days are getting shorter, colder and darker, and christmas is coming, but people are worrying and thinking will there even ‘be’ a Christmas?
This lockdown will be diffrent to the first, first time round I was jumping around to Joe Wicks at 9am with the kids, walking to the beach and the woods, drinking wine in the sun in the garden! This time round, I just feel... meh. Its cold, its dark, and Primark is shut. I knew I should have got my fluffy pj’s ages ago when they first arrived in store! Damn.
I’ve put together a little list of ideas to help you get through this lockdown. So try not to stress, take a moment and have some well deserved me-time.
Make a cup of hot chocolate, tea or coffee
Light some scented candles
Put your Christmas tree up early! ( I have and it makes me smile every time I walk in the room!)
Have a bubbly bath ( add some flowers, essential oils and light candles)
Watch a feel-good family film with the kids
Start a self-care journal
Snuggle up with a hot water bottle
Write down 10 things that you are grateful for
Have a digital detox. Turn off your phone!
Start a new Netflix series
Facetime your bestie
Make an Amazon wishlist
Put on a face mask or foot mask
Read a book
Remember, we are all in this together, we need to be looking out for one another. Some people may be really struggling, may it be financially, mentally or just having a hard time coping. So be kind. Lets look after each other, and stay strong this lockdown!
