- Skip washing your hair: Ok, real talk. We all know that washing your hair every day isn't good for it, but training your hair to handle skipping a day or two without looking like a hot mess is a daunting task. Consider taking advantage of this time that we're all practicing social distancing to train your hair in the privacy of your own home. You'll thank us later.
- Take care of your plants: You might already be an amazing plant mom or dad, but could you perfect your parenting skills? With so much time at home during the day that you don't normally have, find the place in your apartment or house that gets the most light. If one of your plants isn't thriving or your succulents are getting too leggy, consider a change of scenery and relocate your plants to the sunniest spots.
- Bust out old tools: No, we're not talking about a power drill here, although if you want to tackle a home improvement project we won't stop you. We all have tools we bought with the intention of bettering ourselves that sit in our drawers or closets more than it should. Take this time to jade roll every morning. Or dust off your foam roller and relieve some muscle tension.
- Learn a new skill: You've got all of the time in the world right now to try something new at home. Whether that's a new recipe you've always wanted to try or finally learning how to make pour over coffee, you've got this.
- Glow up: Use this time to help you look and feel your best. Get good sleep, eat healthy (with some mindful indulgences), and take advantage of all of the free workouts that are available online. You'll feel like a new and improved person in no time.
As everyone gets used to life at home, we want to give you some unique (and easy) ideas of how to fill that time. We're not here to suggest taking on massive projects, but if you do one positive thing every day, you'll feel better in no time.
