Eco-friendly stylife: While we are staying at home the foreseeable future, there are plenty of ecofriendly things to keep us all going. We have ways things to keep moving forward.
So here’s a three of green resources and things to do during self-isolation. will help you get through this quarantine time as effectively and enjoyably as possible. And more importantly, help you gain practical knowledge that will inspire you to protect this planet and make this world a better place.
Prioritising your health and mental wellbeing is important during these anxious and uncertain times.
Stretch and strengthen with yoga. Doing relaxation techniques at home such as meditation, mindfulness practices and deep breathing exercises will help to relieve anxiety and stress, and counter the abundance of negative messaging on social media and the news so you can get some quality sleep. Do Yoga with Me is offering its high-definition yoga videos for free during the pandemic. They have classes ranging from stress-relieving breathing exercises to popular yoga poses to regular flows—no prior experience (or flexibility!) required.
Fortify your immune system with green juice whipping up a produce-packed smoothie or a green juice may be too much work on a normal morning but what is normal anymore? These days it’s more important than ever to support your immune system and your waistline with plenty of fresh or frozen fruits and veggies.
Prefer to use the time in lockdown productively? Acquiring knowledge and learning new skills is one way to do just that.
Enrol in an online sustainability course. There are so many topics to learn about and there’s usually an online course to help you gain that knowledge, whether you’re keen to learn about sustainable fashion, sustainable development, sustainable food and even sustainable construction.
Read a happy book The antidote for all the doom and gloom news you’ve been reading lately? An ebook about happiness, climate change, sustainability, self-help, or another positive subject.
3. Get organisedThis is the ideal time to get organised in the home, in your garden or in your home office.
Declutter your home. Start with one room, and start decluttering and tidying one corner and then working through until you’ve organised the entire room and sorted and removed unwanted items. Don’t just get rid of these items; consider whether you can repurpose, recycle, add to another room, sell or donate to charity.
Organize your home office with so many people now suddenly working from home, it’s no surprise that home office arrangements for small spaces are in high demand. And you deserve better than your laptop on a sticky table with cords snaking around your feet! Start by setting apart a dedicated space to work (even if that’s on your couch), and then get productive with these working from home rules.
