Thrive and Strive While Staying At Home

THRIVE AND STRIVE WHILE STAYING AT HOME

Life is 10% what happens and 90% how you react to it

We hope you are all hanging in there and keeping safe and well, what a weird time we are living in right now. Whether you are working from home or using the time to hit the pause button and do all those things you never had the time to do, we have the essentials you need to thrive and strive while staying at home, and adjusting to life in this new ‘normal.’

CREATE A WORK SPACE

If you are working or studying from home the best way to keep your head in the game (and get your work done!) is to create a space to work – in other words do not work from bed! Set up a nice space in the house away from any distractions and add some pretty stationary that will make you want to work. We all know that a brand new notebook makes us 1000000% more productive, right?

VIDEO CALL BUT MAKE IT FASHION

Whether you are logging into a morning conference or ‘meeting’ your girls for virtual Friday night drinks, you’re going to want to add a few mood boosting touches to your stay at home outfit! We are thinking some cool hair accessories to hide that three day old hair or some layered necklaces to make your lounge wear casual chic!

TAKE IT SLOW

Think of this time as a way to hit the pause button on life. Pour yourself a cuppa and sit back and relax. Read a book, listen to a podcast, watch a new series, recharge those batteries so that when it is time to go back to normality you will be ready, recharged and fresh to get started again.

WRITE IT DOWN

Everyone is feeling stressed and anxious during this period we are calling our ‘new normal.’ Writing about how you are feeling and getting it all onto paper can take a load of your mind and make you feel more relaxed. We have the perfect notebooks for this, whether you want to let out your creative side, journal your experience or simply create a checklist for yourself each day.

DECLUTTER YOUR LIFE AND GET ORGANISED

What better time than now to have a spring clean. Nothing is more satisfying than getting rid of things you don’t need and now really is the perfect time to dive right into it. We all have those half empty products in our make up bag, clear them out and pop them in their new instaworthy make up bag. One thing we are all going to be reaching for when we come out of isolation is our passport! Get all your travel bits together in one of our fabulous travel wallets. If your purse is anything like ours it will be full of unwanted receipts, clear them out and organise your cards into a snazzy new card holder.

ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS

I think if we have learnt anything from this time it’s to enjoy the little things in life. It has been a time where we have been allowed to stop and be present, make our health our first priority and get creative when staying in contact with friends and family. We cannot wait to get back to a little normality but for now we are appreciating that we are healthy and safe and are able to take this time for ourselves .
