As coronavirus continues to impact our lives, it’s no surprise that levels of anxiety are increasing also.
Stress affects your immune system so it’s important to try and stay as calm as possible. However as the Government advises those with symptoms (or those who live with anyone displaying symptoms) to self-isolate – and everybody else to socially distance themselves, it’s easy to feel a knock-on effect on your mental wellbeing. At DestinationSkin we wanted to share some of our wellness tips for how to protect your mental state and stay positive!
TIP 1 – Maintain a routine
Set a schedule for yourself to stick to when you can. And yes, keep on top of your skin care routine! Because when you look good, you feel good.
TIP 2 – Exercise
Continue to exercise as much as you can, as it instantly improves your mood. Take a walk outside, as it’s proven to reduce stress levels and helps nourish skin cells to keep elasticity!
TIP 3 – Beauty Sleep
Don’t let your stress keep you awake. More sleep boosts your immune system. So try to get 6-8 hours of rest a day. It’s during the hours of sleep that our cells rejuvenate, repairing damage of the previous day.
TIP 4 – Stay Connected
Keeping in contact with those close to you is crucial to de-stressing, so try and get online or phone and facetime someone you know. Remember, you are not alone!
TIP 5 – Mindfulness
Meditation, mindfulness and overall relaxation can help relieve your anxiety. Make sure you take the time to center yourself each day away from your devices.
Remember, you’re not alone and this will pass and we’ll come out of it stronger than ever. So stay calm, stay connected and we’ll all get through this together.
