Fun Ways To Stay Positive At Home
Finding yourself now spending more time at home was kind of fun at first, but over an extended period of time it’s easy to feel disconnected, unmotivated, and probably pretty bored. But here’s an idea: instead of thinking that you’re stuck inside, think of this as an opportunity to try all of the creative and interesting things you’ve always put aside for later. You can start getting really into painting, connect with loved ones, or just get some quality “you” time. Here are some ideas to keep you positive and inspired at home!

6. Spa Day At Home
There's truly nothing we love more than a good, long soak in the tub. Put on some relaxing music, grab your favorite bath bomb, and pour a glass of wine (or two). You can even turn on your oil diffuser (or just light a candle), put on a face mask, and enjoy some much needed "you" time.
7. Invest In Some Lounge Wear
Since you're spending so much time at home, why not invest in some loungewear that's not only comfy but makes you feel good! We are currently living in our Teddy Mocha Lounge Shorts and Zip-Up Crop Hoodie. These make the perfect casual outfit- at home and after all this blows over!
Getting into the practice of spending a few minutes every day being present, mindful, and aware will help you remain sane at home- and give you some extra motivation to get through your day! There are plenty of (free!) online meditations that are accessible to any and everyone!
9. Send A Handwritten Note + Care Package
When’s the last time you actually hand wrote anything? Write a note to a friend or family member that's least expecting it. You can even put together a care package that you'll have fun putting together! You’ll def brighten their day with a piece of mail that’s not a bill.
10. Have A Dance Party
Make a playlist that gets you moving and let yourself unwind to favorite songs. Turn up the volume and dance like no one is watching (because odds are no one really is).
11. Play Dress Up
Playing dress-up isn't just for kids! Our new favorite quarantine activity is getting dressed up and taking photos all around the house. This is such a great way to achieve a sense of normalcy- and get some great new content on your feed!
