Looking good should actually be our lifestyle, not a routine to follow when we step out of our houses.
During this lockdown situation, most of us are at homes and the majority are doing work from home by taking the utmost advantage of the technology. We need to stay positive sticking to our daily chores in this social distancing mode. My favorite hacks to look good include to have a hygienic bath with fragrant shower gels or body wash. I know it’ very basic but many people miss it out thinking “Ghar par hi toh rehna hai.” Other than looking good it also washes away all the germs from our body reducing the chances of illness. Bathing becomes even more crucial if you step out even for a few minutes from your house as the virus is known to adhere to your hair and clothes. Don’t forget to moisturize your body with a good moisturizer or a body lotion or use my favorite by applying oil on the wet body after the bath and then have a water shower.
After bathing, putting on your lovely kajal or eyeliner is the best to look good and give yourself a twist by adding on a funky hair-band on your head to feel fancy and stylish being at home. You can also try out new hairstyles. Check out new combinations of mix and match with your T’s, tops or looser bottoms to remain comfy throughout the day. The aim to be stylish yet being at home creates positive vibes of self-care and self-love. Never forget to feel good.
While surfing on the net again you need to remember how the news about the pandemic is just enough for you. Try following your routine with learning new recipes, creating art pieces and playing board games or cards with your favorite people, your family. The good mental health of each and every person around you should be your responsibility. If anyone among you is over-thinking about the crisis or creating unnecessary fears, you need to counsel them. On the other hand, if you yourself are entrapped in it just have a glance at your old pictures and try remembering the stories behind them, you can even share them on your social media.
Watch comedy shows or movies to give yourself a dose of laughter. My favorite is The Kapil Sharma Show. Talk to friends or family whom you trust about your concerns and proper measures to overcome the chaotic situation and create positive vibes. Try to help someone who cannot help you back maybe your employee, some poor people around you or even a street animal. Kindness is always free and you must not miss it out on the most challenging days. Change the setting of your house which you wanted to try but couldn’t due to the concern of hindering the interiors of the house rather than practicality. Clean up your wardrobes and pile up the unnecessary things and clothes to enjoy the life of minimalism. Reading good books and positive attitude quotes also help us come out of the adversities of life.
Dance up on your favorite Punjabi number as if you are at the best party ever. While taking all these steps of self-care includes the regime of meditation and prayer in your day. Prayers have the capacity of silent healing. Add on your gratitude for the essential care people around you who are risking their health for you while you are at your homes. Sharing the positive posts like this on your social media is also a good idea. May every one of us come out of this plight with shining souls. Let this be a resetting phase of our lives.
