How are you holding up with quarantine life?
Covid-19 has definitely thrown our world for a loop & it is making daily life & routine look a lot different for most of us.
It’s easy to get wrapped up in the negativity, become anxious about where this is leading & feel more stressed on a daily basis due to the unknowns & change in day to day life right now.
Stress, anxiousness, negativity, fear… those are all valid & real feelings, but it is our choice whether we give into those feelings & let them rule our life.
I find it much more helpful to focus on what I can control, on what makes life GOOD right now & how I can be healthier for myself & for those around me!
Being cooped up at home truly can be an awesome opportunity to focus on our health, create new schedules & habits that will cultivate a healthier normal for us!
Here are a few things i’m loving right now that I feel add to my health & some that just make me FEEL good!
It’s super affordable & there is nothing like juice straight from the fruit! I can’t begin to tell you how much more flavor & freshness you get from juicing versus store bought juice. This is perfect for straight juice, to use juices in cooking or, if you are craving a cocktail, this will take your beverage to the next level & save a ton on added sugars! Seriously, you won’t regret this purchase!
Sprouts are an amazing way to get an insane amount of micronutrients in your day! Especially right now, when we need to bulletproof our bodies by getting as much vitamins and minerals as possible, adding sprouts is a super easy way to do that! You can usually find them at your local grocery store, but right now would be the perfect time to grow your own! Plus, it’s easy and WAY more cost effective. This kit is only $16 & one container of sprouts at the grocery store is usually $4-$5!
This is another easy way to get in micronutrient! This greens powder is equivalent to getting 3-4 servings of fruits & veggies, is an antioxidant protectant, anti-aging, immune defense & great for overall health. It’s a concentrated power & can be thrown in your fresh juice you squeeze with that new juicer, water or a smoothie!
Since we are trying to minimize how much we leave our homes, using foods that have a little longer shelf life can help that! These are a few pasta’s we love that are a great alternative to your basic wheat or flour pasta. They also have a much higher protein content than your normal pasta. Mix with veggies, some lean protein and seasonings and WA-LA! Delicious meal for the whole fam!

I don’t know about you, but being cooped up at home can leave me feeling like a couch potato… & pasty white! Straight up sunless tanner is great for an instant tan, but I have been loving this gradual tan lotion. It gives a nice little glow, it’s never streaky & actually smells good! Trust me when I say I’ve tried A LOT of sunless tanners and gradual tan lotions & this one is awesome & worth spending a little more on! It’s super light and will save you from feeling like Casper the friendly ghost!
Colored (or not!) Dry Shampoo
Got roots?! A lot of you ladies may be having to go extra long between appointments & seeing your stylist, as an ex-hairdresser, I love some good looking hair! This dry shampoo comes in a colored option & will disguise those roots peeking through! If you don’t need a color touch-up, you can also use it to keep your hair fresh between washes. It’s a great time to show your hair some extra love & skip on washing & styling as often!
*pro-tip: if you do skip washes, brush your hair well, from the root down to disperse your natural oils throughout, then spray on your dry shampoo!
I’ve used a lot of brands, & this brand is affordable & effective!
Charcoal Face Mask
Of course you need a face mask! Spending more time at home means you have time to slap that on and give your skin some lovin’! Charcoal will help keep skin clear, moisture & keep you feeling fresh! Come on, girl, treat yourself!
I hope quarantine is treating you well!
