Vanessa's Tips for Indoor Wellness

by Vanessa Santos April 02, 2020

Keeping yourself healthy is not just about proper hygiene and sanitization (though those are to be prioritized), but it's also about managing your wellbeing. In a time when practicing wellness has been put under certain limitations, let our beauty editor Vanessa share her four tips to practicing indoor wellness:

1. Take a virtual yoga class.

It's one thing to look up a yoga class on YouTube, it's another thing to do a class with people real-time. Generous studios (and even independently practicing gurus) left and right have started an online movement for stillness. Best part: most of them are free. 

A quick sweep of your city's yoga class social media accounts should land you to a schedule pretty easily. Get out of your jammies and jump into your favorite yoga outfit.


2. Get some sun (aka Vitamin D).

To up the ante on your practice, why don't you take your mat outside and enjoy some sunshine and fresh air?

You can also do what we love to do: grab a drink and your favorite book, and find a nice spot out on the grass. Don't forget to lather on some sunblock before you do!

3. Catch some quality zzz's.

Some of our favorite essential oils for a goodnight's sleep are lavender, rose, vanilla, citrus, jasmine, and sandalwood.

Another pro tip: wearing a quality eye cover helps keep you in slumber longer.  Make sure to pick one made from a good material and fits you comfortably. We also prefer ones with cooling gels in them.

Remember, sleep is different from quality sleep.

4. Have a spa treatment at home.

Desperate times call for desperate measures: while your favorite spa is still on lockdown, you'll be happy to know that it doesn't take much to create your own mini spa at home. Of course, nothing will beat a traditional massage but for now, we are living for the pampering crumbs.

Gather your favorite moisturizing packs and body oil, light a few scented candles, and zen out to some soothing music to relieve tension. Our tip: warmed up thai compression balls work wonders on sore spots.
