If there was a competition, 2020 would win the prize for changing the lives of all Australians.
Instead of focusing on all the negativity in the media, there are some things you can do to look after yourself. Since you’ll be spending a lot of time with yourself, it’s a good idea to make sure you are pampered.
In the words of Donna Noble and Tom Haverford, TREAT YO SELF.
Check out the rest of our article to find out how you can treat yourself during these stressful times and reasons why you should.
Why is self-care important?
There are a lot of articles out there pushing people to be MORE productive during a global pandemic. Things like “Shakespeare wrote King Lear during quarantine for the plague” and “now is the time to learn a language”.
The truth is, a lot of people are feeling stressed, displaced, and less motivated than ever. And that is OK. You are allowed to respond to the world around you and let that change you. And if you feel like it, you can write a play or learn a language — you can also play the sims and eat chocolate. It’s about what YOU need.
How can you treat yo self during a pandemic?
Look, we aren't suggesting that you get addicted to online shopping. It’s just that since you can’t leave the house to shop, you may as well do it online. At Mesmereyez, we ship colour lenses Australia wide.
You won’t have to leave your house or break isolation rules to connect to the outside world. Cheer yourself up with a brand new set of contact lenses, a brand new matching tracksuit, and a 1000 piece puzzle to keep you occupied.
Online shopping benefits include connecting to the outside world, contactless shopping, giving yourself something to look forward to, and making the most of all the ‘stay at home’ sales.
Glam Yourself Up
It sure is tempting to put no effort into your appearance because you won’t be leaving the house, but that’s exactly why you should get glam at home.
We always put so much pressure on ourselves to look good for others — why not get fancy for yourself. And if you want to share your efforts, set up a fancy evening with your friends on Zoom.
Put on those uncomfortable shoes knowing you can sit down all night, pop in your favourite pair of coloured contacts, and stick on that hat you’ve been saving for a special occasion.
Everyone has a guilty pleasure. Take a moment to think of an indulgent activity that you wouldn’t normally waste time on. It’s been a hard year and you have more time on your hands.
So crack open that game of sims, run that bubble bath, read that book, take that nap, sing that song. It is your time to treat yourself.
