To get the most out of your stay in quarantine we have 10 things to uplift your life and to stay as happy as possible.
1. Meditation: If you can not go outside, go inside.
During this time, it is of great importance to keep your happiness. The happier you are, the stronger your immune system is. Looking inward allows you to understand what is happening within you and gives you the freedom to stay calm with great compassion during this time. We highly recommend you to meditate, try different methods or techniques, even if it is just for a short time a day. Of course increasing your meditation time daily will benefit your health and memory to great effects, also after the quarantine. If you have the opportunity to participate in online guided meditation, meditating will even be easier for you.
2. The Power of ‘Thank you‘
The word ‘Thank you’ is a great tool to increase your life quality easily. Make a great habit out of it and remind you to say ‘thank you’ at least a few hundred times a day. We promise you, you are not gonna get enough of this.
3. Stay Positive
To be fair: nobody expected it, but now: here we are. And if we are here now and doing this thing is called life, why not making the best out of it? Let us stay positive and ask yourself ‘how can I make the most out of my stay indoor?’
4. Let your dreams come true
For real: now you have the time to try something out you never really had the time for. Any language you always wanted to try or learn? Any type of dance or exercise which was calling for your attention? Or an instrument? YouTube gives you great opportunities to try things out and even to participate in challenges which last up to 30 days.
5. Rituals are the key
In case you have decided to join a challenge on YouTube (let’s say like yoga or a language) give it a specific time. It is easier to keep on track with something you decided on if you give it a specific time. Wake up, get it started. Other rituals are important too: Keep your meals at a similar time. Your body loves it. Enjoy the routine and the rituals and you will see: time flies.
6. Move as much as possible
Enjoying one or two movies as well as series can be fun, yes, but we recommend you to keep moving as much as possible. Energy creates energy. So to keep vital and healthy, with a high level of energy throughout your stay you need to keep moving. The more you move, the less you think, the happier the body is and there more energy you have for all the beautiful things you enjoy doing.
7. Keep yourself as busy as possible
When you ask the most successful people in the world, why they are not worried, they will tell you: ‘I do not have time for thing about that stuff.’ True words. Keep your rituals going, keep a routine going. If you have not established one yet: great now is the time to go for it. There are plenty articles out to set your mind right there and to get you going for a great routine. You will see how easy it is and how much you gonna love it to keep doing and moving.
8. Keep it clean
Not only to keep moving cleaning is a key, also to stay really healthy and focused on things you wanna do throughout the day. If it is clean and organized around you, your mind will feel the same.
9. Facetime with love ones
To Meet up with friends and family members on facetime or skype can be very exciting and special. For the brain similar regions are stimulated, so it will be almost like seeing them in real. Great, that we can make the best out of it: How about cooking together, having dinner or playing some online games or just seeing each other, enjoying the beauty of being in company or even figuring out how a date online would be. Get creative and have fun.
10. Let the air breeze
Last but not least: Keep the windows open or let some air in whenever you can. Your brain will love the breeze and thank you with great health and the best support. By opening the windows, you can also remind yourself to take a deep breath in and out. Just as a little tool to remind you, that all there is is this breath in this moment.
