10 Things to Do That Will Keep You Smiling While Practicing Social Distancing
Is doing your duty and practicing social distancing taking a toll? We have unprecedented amounts of free time amidst this pandemic. While public health institutions are working hard to get our lives back to normal, you may feel a host of emotions about staying home.
If you need an outlet to stay positive through this uncertain time, we at EverSmile have some ideas for you to try.
1. Get Zen With Yoga
Keeping active and staying inside is tough. When you grow accustomed to the gym or exercise classes, you feel lost without them. Yoga is a great alternative for those who want to keep their bodies moving while they're at home. As an added bonus, it will help you manage the stress and anxiety you may feel during this time. Find an instructional video online and feel the stretch!
2. Test Out a New Beauty Routine
Our newsfeeds constantly bombard us with ads for new products. With more free time and no worries about who will see you, this is the perfect time to try some new products as part of your beauty routine. Whether it's a new face wash, hairstyle or whitening treatment, you will have fun experimenting with a new look for after quarantine.
WhitenFresh by EverSmile is something new to try if you want to come out of social distancing with whiter teeth. WhitenFresh is our patented tooth whitening spray that cleanses your mouth and freshens your breath without making your teeth sensitive. Add it to your daily routine and see results in just two weeks!
3. Join a Book Club
Plenty of people continue to find community despite it not occurring in person. Joining a book club to talk about a common read will help you stay connected with friends and foster relationships. Social distancing doesn't have to mean social isolation thanks to modern technology like e-books and group conference calls.
4. Organize Your Closet
Cleanse more than just your hands during this mandated break. Clean out your closet and donate the clothes you no longer want or wear. We all have a surplus of clothes sitting in the back that could bring joy to someone else. You will feel a sense of accomplishment and better see what you have to wear each morning.
5. Plant a Small Garden
Staying home doesn't have to mean strictly staying inside. You can enjoy the spring weather and build a garden of your own to enjoy later. Plant things like snow peas, broccoli and kale to eat as soon as they're ready.
6. Order Takeout
Treat yourself to your favorite restaurant's menu with an order of takeout. Whether it's fast food or a local place, you could use a slice of the outside world. You'll not only support a business, but you'll also be off-the-hook for cooking that night.
7. Get Creative
Have you saved countless DIY projects to make later? Now is the time you've accidentally prepared for! Try your hand at painting, drawing, scrapbooking, crafting something for your home or anything else that gives you an outlet for your creativity.
8. Learn a Language
With so much extra time on your hands, why not better yourself? Choose a new language or one you studied years ago in senior high. You can practice with a friend or connect with people in the country who speak it all the time while everyone is stuck at home. Once you know enough, you can start planning a trip to really test your studying.
9. Call an Old Friend
Everyone has more free time now, making it the perfect opportunity to reconnect with someone who's living across the country or somebody you haven't seen in years.
10. Complete a Puzzle
Take on a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle or a tough crossword puzzle to keep your brain working. You'll have a cool masterpiece to display or a surge of confidence to complete another puzzle.
