Friday…Tips to Calm You in Quarantine

This self quarantine is starting to wear on many and we must find ways to stay productive, positive and healthy. As we navigate through this difficult time, I have a few suggestions to help you make each day as pleasant as possible.

Routine is EVERYTHING! I KNOWWWW this is a hard one because quite frankly there is no where to go! With little if any routine because you can’t leave the house -I urge you to wake up and go to bed around the same time everyday.

Ditch the P.J.’s and GET DRESSED. It’s soooo easy to stay in your PJ’s all day BUT you’ll feel better about yourself and keep your spirits up if you make the effort to put on something presentable. If you’re really going for the GOLD-put on some make up and spritz your favorite perfume..whal- lah instant mood lifter.

Get your Workout IN! Gyms are closed, personal trainers must stay put and  forget group fitness classes so what’s a Glamour Girl to do to keep the pounds at bay? First and foremost you can still walk outside (which I highly recommend) I’ve been clocking in 2 walks daily and aiming for 10,0000 to 12,000 steps a day to keep pounds at bay. Add into that some strength training with at home weights, and a plethora of videos I’m participating in via You tube (my workout  buddy). Here are two of my favorites:

**Coach Kel  (Barre Class)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYFIb4VS7BM

Phone Calls to stay connected: Go old school and pick up the phone. Call friends and family- it’s time to reconnect and not by text. You need some sort of human interaction.  Now more than ever it’s important to stay connected -even though we must keep “social distancing” in check. I live alone and haven’t been with anyone I know in 3 weeks. The phone has been  my life line..literally.

Time to Hobby UP! Read a good book, write that play,book or movie , bake, sing, dance,sew something -you get the picture! It’s time to insert some enjoyable tasks into your routine because let’s face it- you have a little extra time on your hands.

I hope you’re all staying healthy and happy and taking a moment of reflection to count our blessings.

Be Well, take care.  We will get through this together. xoxoT

Dior Show 2012

Raf Simons first collection for Dior Fall Winter *Garden Couture.

 

 

How are we all doing today? Are you sticking to a routine? Getting some fresh air? Finding things to do that bring a bit of joy to your life? I hope so.

I’m well aware that this  whole business of self quarantine, social distancing and 24/7  news reporting on the corona virus is NOT helping anyone lift their spirits.In fact, I find that ALL of the above – do the exact opposite. After listening to  the endless reporting on all news  sources concerning the Corona Virus,  I have decided to take a complete day away from any sort of news. Period..

That being said,I would like to  wish you a Happy FIRST DAY OF SPRING!

What better way to start the day than with some pretty petals styled so fashionably.

From me to you… I hope  and pray that you are having a beauuutiful day and take a moment to smell the roses( or petals of any sort-tulips, orchids, daffodils-I think you get the picture-breath in some beauty) … I encourage to get out of the house(if only for a moment)  and have a change of scenery to breath in some pretty greenery. …

Morning Ritual(s)

Tuesday’s Tip…. is all about your Morning Ritual. Did you know that if you have a morning ritual studies show that you will be happier, healthier and more productive. How amazing is that!

As we near the end of Summer, I thought that there’s no better time to embrace or reignite your morning routine.

Here’s the 411 on how I begin my day..most of the time: *This post was inspired by you (my lovely readers) who inquired as to how I start my day.

My Morning Ritual

  • Meditate  15- 20 minutes  (Translation: listen to my breath and try to calm my thoughts which are usually going at 100 mph already)
  • After I meditate ..Drink 1 cup hot water with lemon
  • Followed by a Protein Shake (SunWarrior Plant based protein powder)**Recipe to follow in a later post
  • Dress,Make bed, Clean up kitchen
  • Out the door by 7:00-7:15 AM

If the thought of doing anything in the early AM (besides pouring a cup of coffee) seems crazzzzzy BUT you want to embrace this whole morning ritual business, I’ve put together a few easy and very doable suggestions to get you started:

  1. Wake up 15 minutes earlier
  2. Stretch before you get out of bed (approximately 2-3 minutes of stretching)
  3. Meditate (10 minutes-listen to your own breath or put on some calming music for 10 minutes)
  4. Make a cup of hot water and squeeze one lemon wedge into a cup-sip slowly) Great early morning cleanse.
  5. Make your “to do” list for the day (List 3 things you want to get done today) .
  6. Eat breakfast…(Something nourishing… to get your system running).

A morning ritual can lead to living a happier,healthier and more productive life. YOU CAN DO THIS…Baby Steps”
