Our Top Tips for Staying Connected!

With our increasingly digital daily lives, it’s important to remember to stay connected with not only your loved ones, but yourself too! We’ve put together our top self care tips on how to stay positive, inspired and connected (while maintaining glowing skin, naturally!).

Our Top 5 Self Care Ideas

1. Stay active

Regular exercise is one of the best ways to stay positive (and sane!). Make time each week to roll out your yoga mat and find your inner zen, stretch your legs at the local park or try a new sport. Why not stream a Zoom class with your favourite yoga or HIIT teacher and get your sweat on while enjoying a sense of community?

2. Stay connected to friends with Netflix watch parties

If you’re anything like us, you’ll love this new Google Chrome extension!Netflix Partylets you chat with friends while watching shows and movies apart from each other, making it the perfect way to stay connected with friends and family all over the world. At long last, you can start, stop and pause a Netflix movie or show you watch at the same time as a group of friends and family, without the hard work of trying to synchronize everyone (“3, 2, 1… play!”). It’s the perfect night-in this weekend! 

3. Treat yourself to some TLC and ramp up your skincare game

It’s great to stay connected with colleagues and loved ones, but the most important thing is to make sure youre looking after number one! Make time to have a long relaxing bath, moisturise and give yourself the TLC you deserve! We love to treat our skin to ultra-hydratingoils  and serums, especially after masking!

4. Stay connected to your interests by learning new skills and listening to podcasts

Podcasts are a great way to keep your mind busy, we love KIC, Shameless and all of Mamamia’s podcasts – there’s something for everyone!  

5. Learn how to meditate

Meditating, one of our favourite self care activities, is a great way to stay connected to your emotions. We love the Smiling Mind & Headspace Apps. With 100s of guided meditations and articles, Headspace’s goal is to make mindfulness accessible for everyone.
