Hello lovely people! How are my UK readers doing after the announcement of lockdown 2.0? I know it isn’t going to be the easiest of times for many of us, but hang in there. I hope this post helps you with your days in giving you a bit of stability. Here’s 4 easy ways to make your days easier.
4 Easy Ways to Make Your Days Easier
Meal prep isn’t only for the gym heads. It’s such a great tool to save you time and save money. You can get creative with your weekly menus and store them in your fridge or freezer. Mix and match dishes to come up with something delicious and unique. Another perk to meal prepping is that it helps you to eat healthier. I often times find that when I meal prep for a week, my meals are well balanced. Give it a try! Pinterest has a gazillion ideas!
Laundry and Cleaning
Let’s be real, laundry is a never ending cycle that we just need to get used to. To make it easier, I have gotten into a routine of washing a load twice a week. The same with cleaning. There’s stuff that get done once a week such as, vacuuming. Or, every other week the bathroom is deep cleaned. Nothing feels good like a clean space with fresh sheets.
Develop a Daily Practice
Does your day start with the alarm going off and then you jump on social media or, check your emails? How does that make you feel? Maybe a bit rushed and unprepared? What about taking 15 minutes and being mindful? Life is even more stressful than normal, so taking a few minutes before your day starts can be helpful. Give yourself that each day, so you can show up for you and others.
Simplify Your Skincare Routine
You know I am a big fan of skincare and love to try new products. However, I took the time to figure out for the most part what works for me. Everyone’s skin is different and needs different things. Get yourself a daily routine with products that works for you. It doesn’t need to be expensive, just needs to work for you. Once a week, pamper your skin and throw in a face mask. Your skin will thank you for being consistent when you’re 80!
These are the 4 easy ways to make your days easier. I found them to be helpful pre-lockdown and post-lockdown. It gave me a bit of structure for my days. Besides, having easy mundane tasks gets me to that Netflix show faster. I’d love to know what you do to make your days easier.
