While there are actionable ways to help preserve your mental wellbeing during an imposed quarantine, sometimes you can’t help but still get overwhelmed. Times like these call for easier actions that function as grounding exercises to help redirect your thoughts away from stress. Doesn’t hurt to pamper yourself a little bit, too — a little extra care goes a LONG way when it comes to relieving stress!
These simple pampering steps help us relax when we’re feeling a little wrung out — here’s hoping they’re helpful for you, too. Check them out below:
What you can do:
· Set an alarm way ahead to help snap you out of the social media black hole and remind you to get on your evening care routine.
· Load up a podcast or a groovy playlist (here are some great jams to wash your hands to!), then gently remove the makeup you put on with a creamy makeup remover, just like any other day.
The tactile sensation of going over your face to remove makeup residue can be quite calming. Just make sure your hands are clean before you start!
