Engaging in healthy habits is crucial in these troubling times.

A long bubble bath, a consistent skincare routine, a workout session with friends via Zoom—whatever your ritual may be, practicing self-care is paramount to a healthy well-being, especially in these troubling times. And while it’s only normal to feel anxious whenever your plans get cancelled and you get stuck at home away from your loved ones, choosing to stay positive will undoubtedly do wonders for your mind and body!

If you’re struggling on where to start, here are a few different ways you can practice self-care while you’re socially distanced at home.

1. Make sleep your priority.

Mostly staying indoors can make you lose track of time and succumb into irregular sleep patterns, which can cause drastic short and long-term negative effects to your health. To combat this, establishing a consistent shut-eye schedule is important, as well as making sure that you’re getting the ideal duration of seven to eight hours of quality sleep. Taking Vitamin E before your slumber also helps in improving your nighttime breathing, leading you to enjoy your well-deserved rest.

2. Get active to boost your mood.

Making time for exercise, no matter how quick or grueling it might be, is always a foolproof way to get the dopamines kicking into your system. Keep your sweats coming through an energizing workout and see how your mood improves in an instant! Don’t forget to take your immunity-building vitamins to keep you strong and ready for your workout no matter the time of the day.
