The pandemic has been rough on us all, with many people struggling to feel like themselves. Whether it’s a mental issue, a lack of social interaction, or anxiety about what is happening to our ever-changing world, you might feel far from your beautiful best. Fear not, though.
Here is how to start feeling better about yourself for when the pandemic ends and life returns to normal!
If you’ve been dying to feel different then a brand-new wardrobe can always help with that. Now that shopping centers are reopening and you can do a proper clothes haul, you have the chance to reinvent yourself and get back to looking like your beautiful best for when the pandemic ends and you’re ready to party and socialize once more!
It’s important to support your local high-street stores after a year of shopping online too. So say goodbye to ASOS for a while, and get into town and hunt for a bargain or two. A new wardrobe will instantly transform your mood.
If you’ve slipped back into your unhealthy ways during the pandemic, then don’t be too hard on yourself. Sometimes, we have had to rely on the world’s vices to get through this pandemic, and you should be no exception to that. However, it is time for you to ditch those unhealthy habits for good if you want to get back to feeling your beautiful best.
Developed ‘maskne’ during COVID-19? Then a new skincare routine is very much to get your face back to where it was.
Equally, if you are an ex-smoker and you’ve given in to smoking once again, then why not try easing your way off it? Vaping has massively grown in popularity in recent years and is a much healthier habit to take up as opposed to smoking. Plus, it’s much cheaper, so you won’t have to fork out as much each month and you can spend the money socializing with your mates instead.
Arguably the toughest routine to stick to when trying to get back in shape is eating well. It’s all very well working out in the gym four times a week – and this is very much encouraged – but you need to supplement that hard work with a healthy diet too.
Try to stick to a meal prep plan every week so that you know how many calories you are consuming in a bid to lose some of that excess weight and get back to your beautiful best for when the pandemic is over.
If you follow any fitness influencers or see a personal trainer, they will be able to advise you on how best to look after your nutrition and diet now that lockdown is over and you can go out again.
Try to limit alcohol consumption and the number of takeaways that you’re getting. Just a week off from a routine of eating healthily and working out loads can really set you back.
