Your favorite restaurant is take-out only, that concert has been postponed and you’re starting to wonder how you can make your own fun at home. Well, we’ve got your back! There are a million ways to make the best out of a spring staycation while staying safe and healthy (don’t worry though, we won’t bore you with a million). Here’s 5 of the best staycation ideas to help keep you focused and having fun during these wild times. Read on to get all the inspo!
All you need for an impromptu photoshoot is creativity, a tripod (or LBH, anything to prop up your phone) and some fire ‘fits! Go full fashion with your outfits and put together the ultimate spring look book to post on Instagram. You can still be a total fashion-girl at home by sharing all your personal favorite OOTDs! Strike a pose, sis!
No need to head to the mall! All your favorite looks are right at your fingertips. We’re open 24/7 online, so you can score outfits for your next photoshoot, grab some new makeup and skincare or start planning your summer look (seriously, summer will be here fast). Now’s the perfect time to start that style vlog you’ve been thinking about or get in on the makeup tutorial game, so get searching for a new hobby!
Hang with Furry Friends
Right now (and always) is the perfect time to give your fur babies lots of love! Take some time out of your schedule to give them extra attention by cuddling up on the couch to watch a movie, playing in the backyard or trying out a healthy DIY treat recipe! Then you can share all your pet pics online to spread a little positivity to all your friends and family. If you can’t or don’t have the opportunity to share your space with a pet, but have always wanted to, try volunteering at a local shelter this summer and bring a little extra good into the world.
Have you been putting off that deep clean of your bathroom or reorganizing your closet? Well, same. Cleaning is so cathartic and can help you feel productive even when you’re stuck indoors. Be sure to take on your tasks in manageable steps, focusing on one room or project a day, and you’ll be feeling better in no time. Be sure to pack up all your unwanted clothing and belongings to give to friends and family or donate it to a local organization. Listen to our girl, Javi’s advice, “clean face, clean hands, clean home”. Preach 🙌
Get Some Fresh Air
Stepping outside is a great way to feel rejuvenated after sitting inside for so long. Not only that, but it’s v important for your mental health. With all the confusion, frustration and disappointment in the world right now, it’s easy to forget that it matters less where you are than how you are—so don’t forget to care for yourself. As long as you stay away from crowds and avoid close contact with others, you can safely enjoy the outdoors. Go for a walk, tend to your garden or get started on your tan (and that book you promised yourself you’d read) a little early this year.
