For those of us staying home during this time, it can feel a little boring at times with not much to do. It can be easy to slip into the habit of doing nothing all day but watching Netflix shows and feeling demotivated to do anything. While staying home it is important to support one another and especially to take care of ourselves. Here are our top tips for keeping your life in order and staying optimistic while at home!
1. Keep a routine
While it can be tempting to lay in bed every day until noon, having a decent sleep cycle is ideal for your physical and mental health. Keeping a routine for going to sleep and waking up every morning is a great way to keep order in your life and can make you feel much more productive and in control. Similarly, for those that are working from home, setting up a work routine and work space can be beneficial to getting more work done and to avoid procrastination.
2. Try new things
Staying at home everyday can make everyday feel the same and can become boring and tiresome. A way to feel optimistic from home is to try new things and venture out of your usual choices. Pick up a new hobby that you can do from home such as drawing or gardening, or try a new exotic recipe and spend a few hours cooking a new dish. We always recommend having fun by styling your hair differently or trying something new such as a new color or some new hair extensions. Styling your hair can be a calming activity and can make you feel good about yourself. UniWigs offers plenty of tips about trying new hairstyles and having fun with your hair while at home.

3. Take time to relax
Taking time out for relaxation is especially important with current events and staying home. Many people may feel like they have to always be productive while at home by constantly staying busy, by working, learning a new skill or doing a new project. While this is great, it's important we schedule time for ourselves. Try relaxing by running a hot bath, meditating, reading a good book or doing an activity that you find calming. Relaxation has many benefits, including being great for your hair and hair growth as it is known to reduce stress. So be sure to take time to relax while at home!
