Survive Self-Isolation: Seek out the positive and you will find it in these unprecedented times.
The one thing we have is time
Time to connect with the people we live with,
Time to work on ourselves,
Time to re-prioritise and re-focus on the things that are important to us,
Time to reflect on freedom—the freedom that so many of us took for granted—the freedom that so many people around the world do not have,
Time to be grateful and create joy in our lives,
And time to bake and craft beautiful meals with our families…yes! Here are some exquisite keto recipes that you can make with the whole family…why not cook up a storm during self-isolation?!
And if baking is not your thing, how about online Yoga? Working out at home? Perhaps enjoy a brilliant podcast or indulge in a great read?
Here are our top picks for enjoying life and developing yourself at home in times of a lock down…
How can you create more joy in your life during self-isolation?
Especially with gyms and leisure centres being closed down…
Get Outside and Breathe
Gardening, this is a great time to reconnect with nature if you have a garden. Indulge in long walks outside too—aren’t we blessed with this sunshine?
Stretch the Body and Soothe the Mind with Yoga
Personally, I LOVE Yoga with Adriene. Her yoga instruction is heartfelt, down to earth and she is quite the comedienne!
Pop Sugar run some fantastic—and extremely tiring HIIT workouts, especially the Raneir Pollard series—he is hilarious—you will definitely tire out both sets of cheeks!
James Altucher has aired some positively enlightening podcasts on the Corona Virus with respect to global economics.
My favourite fiction read from this year has been The Ocean at the End of Lane by Neil Gaiman and my most valuable non-fiction book of the past 4 years has been Mindlift: Mental Fitness for the Modern Mind by Kasper van der Meulen.
For those of you working from home next week, have a read of this in-depth article on how to optimise your productivity and focus. I have been working from home for the past three years and have collated the most effective tips and habits for maximising productivity here on the LIV NRG blog. I hope you find it useful.
Thrive and survive self-isolation: a lock down doesn’t have to be negative…let’s turn a negative into a positive. Have a beautiful, joyful day.
I would love to know how you are spending your time and creating more joy in your life. Let me know in the comments section below.
