[THE] Stay at Home Self-Care Guide

Stuck at home with nothing to do? Here’s the silver lining: So are the rest of us!

At this point, let’s just try to make the best of it, shall we? The more we fill our days with things that make us feel good, the less stressed and anxious we will be.

In addition to our 14 Day Mini-Edit, here are ten other ways to practice self-care and bring some light to these dark times:

1. Give Yourself a Mani/Pedi:

That gel manicure you got three weeks ago? It’s looking rough. Time to remove that polish and start fresh.

2. Do a Skincare Treatment:

Just because you *feel* like you’ve aged years in a matter of a few weeks doesn’t mean you have to *look* that way.

3. Apply a Hair Mask:

Never underestimate the power of a good hair day, even when the world is ending.

4. Fake a Tan:

Well, we’ve barely seen the light of day, and it shows. Luckily, self-tanner isn’t as streaky and orange as it used to be, so we can fake a healthy glow without looking like a sad Oompa Loompa and staining every towel we own.

5. Create an At-Home Gym:

If jogging around your neighborhood isn’t an option, release your pent-up energy from the comfort of home (in your pajamas).

6. Take a Bath:

We normally don’t like taking baths, but right now? We can’t get enough of them. It’s a great way to relax, unwind, and escape your family.

7. Light a Candle:

When you’ve been stuck in the house for weeks, the scent of a good candle is a much-needed breath of fresh air.

8. Wear Pajamas, 24/7:

Is there really another option? No, the cozier you are, the more sane you’ll be.

9. Read a Book:

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: You can never go wrong with Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club. Here are some of our favorite picks to help you escape reality.

10. Color:

Pair with a glass of champagne (or a cup of tea) and color your way to calm.
