Guys, we’re officially in month three of quarantine due to Covid18 and I don’t know about you, but any form of self care that I can start and/or continue into this summer is needed more now than every before.
While being at home, allowed me to refocus my sight on so many things, it definitely has taken a toll on my mental. Add the reinvigoration of the Black Lives Matter movement due to yet another senseless killing of an un-armed black man, George Lloyd, and I’m totally spent.
After a week of protest and crying out for change, I took it upon myself to do some Sunday morning yoga with my daughter this past weekend.
Equipped in our Fenty Savage athletic wear, we took to our building’s garden outdoor space and went to town. While I do not claim to be a yoga enthusiast, I have found that combining it with meditation has slowly become my go-to for whenever I’m having any sense of being overwhelmed.
Self care can look different for everyone. If you’re looking for some recommendations, here are mine below:
- YOGA: I’m fairly new to this and find it really hard to balance myself but it’s definitely been helping me zen out;
- READ A BOOK: I recently started Audible and while its taking me some time to become accustomed to being read to, it frees up my ability to do other things around the house simultaneously;
- CALL/ZOOM: Reach out to your friends and family. As self isolation continues for many of us, please do not hesitate reaching out to those you trust and care for you;
- TAKE A WALK: Sometimes fresh air and some Vitamin D can be the best prescription;BAKE: While i’m not a pro in the kitchen by an means, making cookies, pastries, etc does something to my soul. Besides filling my home with the sweetest aroma, using my hands to make a sweet conception is THE BEST!!
I highly encourage you to try at least one self care tip from the list above. Let me know how it turns out for you!
When you look good, it’s the first step towards feeling good. Here are my some of my recommendations for the cutest Yoga/fitness pieces around (straight & plus sizes)
