As we think of self care strategies, we are going through a strange period, and therefore incorporating self-care into our daily routine becomes essential. Keeping up with your style can make you feel good, but clothes can only enhance what is inside. To help you feel good from inside out during these uncertain times, we have listed 5 Simple self care ideas to Practice Self-Care At Home.
Health is wealth, especially in these times, it is even more important to take care of our immune system. Recently, we took an online Masterclass with Dr.Barbara Strum, where she recommended starting your day with a cocktail of water, lemon and honey, load your plate with lots of fruits and veggies, especially spinach, raw nuts and oranges. Drink green smoothies, stock on vitamins and reduce your sugar intake. These are simple self care strategies to stay healthy. Tonight cook yourself a delicious and nutritious meal and enjoy it with your loved ones – here is our favourite source for easy and healthy recipes from Deliciously Ella.

During this period when we have to stay at home it is important to keep moving and to give love to your body. As part of our self care ideas there are plenty of workouts you can do in the comfort of your own home, yoga, pilates, ballet… Among our favourite apps are Daily Butt Workout and 7mwc which gives you the benefits of an hour workout in just 7 minutes.
