No matter where you are in the world, Covid-19 has brought us all together. In this tough time we need to remember what’s important, and focus on our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. While we’re all in a working-from-home environment, we put together our TOP QUARANTINE HACKS to get you through self-isolation, and social distancing.
Try these mood boosting-productivity saving life hacks to STAY SANE!
1. HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE:
Get out a pen + paper and take notes, babe. Write down everything you want to accomplish at home. Maybe you have some DIY projects, or you’ve been dying to clean out your closet. You could also have personal goals, like getting stronger or more fit, or professional goals like learning how to make your excel docs more efficient. The best part of writing your goals down? Crossing them off when you accomplish them!
2. STAY CONNECTED:
Your family and friends are just a phone call away, and right now it’s super important to stay connected. Whether you’re working from home, and hopping on a quick chat with your girlfriends, or you’re calling your mom for help getting out that stain. Stay connected, stay in communication, and put in the effort- you’ll be surprised how much less isolated you feel. Our fitness app includes a community forum designed for exactly that purpose! With Flat Tummy you’re connected to a community of 3.5 Million women motivated to get fit, get strong, and get results!
3. TEACH YO-SELF:
Whether you’re working 8 hours a day or not, quarantine has definitely given us extra time on our hands. Spend that time wisely and use it to focus on self growth. Online has a wealth of knowledge for you to tap into- FOR FREE! You can learn anything from coding/IT, SEO, writing, another language, photography etc. Just grab a seat, choose a topic, google it, and get learning!
4. KEEP MOVIN’:
Girl, exercise is probably the most important of everything on the list. If you’re living inside, you’re less likely to be doing activities such as browsing the mall or grocery stores, so your lifestyle is very sedentary. Since you’re missing out on these daily activities, you need to make sure to get a quick workout in, to get your blood flowing! Flat Tummy App is an at-home fitness app designed to help you get fit from home. It’s equipment free, and has everything you need to get back on track!
Set yourself up for success by catering to your physical self-care, as much as your mental and emotional! An at home spa day is super simple to create, and you can do it with your mom, your roomie, or your significant other! Some at home spa-day ideas could include a boujie bath, pedicure + manicure, hair mask, face mask, lip scrub, exfoliating, moisturizing, and of course lots of bubbles! Some at-home ingredients you might already have include avocado, coconut oil, coffee grinds, sugar, egg, yoghurt, honey, cucumber, lemon, sea salt, essential oils, candles etc!
6. CREATIVE IN THE KITCHEN:
You don’t have to be a trained chef to make a yummy meal. Experimenting in the kitchen and learning how to cook is all about getting creative, making mistakes, and trying new things. Our Flat Tummy App is also a customized nutrition app, with 4 different diet types (Keto, Vegan, Vegetarian, and Standard). It’ll provide you with your own personal meal plan, and we have over 750+ recipes! Each recipe includes a nutritional breakdown, instructions, and cook time.
7. MANIFEST THAT SH*T:
If you’re anything like us and you got you have big dreams, but maybe not as much time- time to get started on a vision board! This is essentially a ‘dream’ board and is designed to serve as a source of inspo and motivation. A vision board uses the law of attraction to accomplish your goals! Put positive vibes into the universe, and you’ll receive them. Plus, all you have is time, so grab those old magazines and put them to good use!
8. BREATH OF FRESH AIR:
Studies show that fresh air has been linked to help food digestion, improve blood pressure, improve heart rate, and strengthen your immune system. Getting some fresh air could be as simple as going for a walk, sitting outside on the front steps, or even just opening the windows for a few hours. Don’t underestimate the effects this will have on your mood, and overall health!
All in all, whether you’re social distancing, self isolating, or straight up on quarantine, the tips and tricks above will help you stay safe, stay healthy, and of course, stay SANE. It’s important to focus on your mental and emotional state, just as much as your physical self. And don’t forget, we always got your back! #stayontrack
