During these historic times, it can feel like your entire world has been flipped upside down. From attending your favorite annual events, to missing sunny beach days to the emptiness of not having summer concerts! However, it is important to avoid getting stuck in a rut, starting with these tips that can help make you feel like the best version of yourself, both mentally and physically.

Practice Gratitude
Despite the changes and restrictions caused by the pandemic, it is important to focus on the positive and be grateful for the small things, like the sunny climate, access to delivery from local businesses and down-time to focus on passions.

Stay Hydrated
Water is essential for a healthy body and mind. It can be tempting to reach for other beverages, but instead make sure you drink eight-plus glasses by keeping a steady supply either from your tap, or from your local water store, and support small business.

Conscious Cooking
While some supplies were limited for a time, that does not mean you cannot prepare healthy meals for you and your family. Now that some farmers markets have re-opened, make it a routine to grab fresh ingredients and try new recipes.

Keep Moving
With extra down time, it can be easy to spend your days lounging, but you also need to make time to move. Take advantage of the beautiful weather and take a walk or join live-stream workouts by your neighborhood gym.

Prioritize Mental Health
Right now your mental health is important, so make time to do things that make you feel good. Stay in touch virtually, order book deliveries from your favorite shop, set aside time for sunset yoga and give yourself a break.
