So, I’ll get right down to it. There are five things I started doing (or used to do, that I brought back) that have not only changed the way my self-isolation is going, but that have changed my overall lifestyle in amazing ways. And they’re suuuuuuper simple.

Self-isolation was, at the beginning, a confusing time. I realized that a lot of my routine has been shaped around where I was going out in the world, and when there was suddenly nowhere to go, I had to find new ground.

Now, here are the crucial, simple things I do each day for emotional, mental, and physical well-being:

1. Get in the sunlight — immediately

2. Meditate, and journal right afterwards

3. Keep intake of fruits and vegetables high

The thing is, fresh fruits and vegetables are not only exactly what our immune systems need in times of illness, but they’re also the healthiest foods in general — and it’s important to keep our bodies feeling vital and healthy in times that we’re being flooding with bad news.

4. Drink 3L of water throughout the day

5. Get upside down

Again, intention is a powerful thing. The mental component of getting upside down, for me, is that I am allowing myself to see things from a new perspective. You can set your own intention.

The common denominator…
