We know all too well how easy it is to spend long hours cooped up at home. Especially now that we’ve gotten used to it. However, being at home also leads to stress in the form of work, family, or even just your thoughts. Here are some tips for you to take care of yourself from the comfort of your own home.
1. Make connections
When we are by ourselves, sitting in front of a laptop, it is easy to get lost in a sea of work. One good thing however is the advancement of technology, and how it allows us to stay connected to one another! Remember that you have friends and family who are just a call away. It is important to be in tune with your own emotions as well, whether it is with your friends or with your body.
2. Eat well
Eating at the right time and consuming the right food is also important to maintain your physical and mental well-being. Herbal soups are an excellent way to get plenty of nutrients. And if you do not have many hours to spare for your lunch break, do ensure that you eat healthily even if you’re ordering delivery so that you can keep your energy levels up.
3. Clear your space
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners, our bodies have a flow of energy, also known as ‘qi’. Maintaining this flow of energy throughout our body is vital to preserving physical or mental strength. Take stock of your own space. Whether that is your dining room table, home office or even your bed. By decluttering, you are giving yourself the physical and mental capacity to ensure a good flow of energy.

When you look good, you feel good. This is a common adage and it holds some truth and one of the most visible aspects of one’s appearance is the maintenance of a healthy and beautiful mane.
