Staying sane during self-isolation

You’ve finally done the impossible–gone through all the watchable, binge-worthy shows on Netflix, Amazon Prime and YouTube.


Now what? If the days and weeks of self-isolation are making you antsy, we’ve got you. There are more ways to pass the time than glued to a screen.


  1. Learn a new skill.


Learning a skill can enhance your life. If you’ve been intimidated by your kitchen, now is the time to conquer your fear and learn how to cook. Perfect a technique or learn to master a few new recipes.


Have you been meaning to pick up a hobby? Now is the time to try a few things and see what sticks!


  1. Get ahead at work.

    Want to upgrade your job? Take this time to work on your skills with a few online courses. Dust off your résumé if you’re looking for a new job!


In these wild times, focusing on a side hustle can take your mind off what’s happening in the world while putting money in your pocket. Or put an idea into motion!


Looking for a new career altogether? Take a few online courses after your 9-5 and be one step closer to the job you want!


Skills aside, it’s also time to think about dressing for the job you want.


Dress up like a boss. Embody the other qualities that you want to emulate from your boss or mentor now. Practice this during self-isolation with the stakes low. By the time you’re back at the office, that energy will be more comfortable and natural.


This also applies to hair and makeup. Use this time to create new looks with our styler+, cordless curling wand/iron and your makeup. Create a handy lookbook for later that you can revisit when you’re headed back to work!


  1. Find ways to reuse and use things to its fullest.


Part scavenger hunt, part necessity–finding ways to use things to its maximum is a generally good rule to live by.


Finding new ways to use what's in your pantry–like creating a mystery stew–could save you money and a trip to the grocery store. It might even taste great in the process!

Likewise, see if you can stretch the uses of your toiletries and beauty supplies. Conditioner can be used as shaving cream in a pinch. Learn how to use your tools to the fullest–our
styler+ can be used to create straight, wavy and curly looks on its own. Our curling iron/wand can create double the amount of looks with its detachable wand.


Check for hair tutorials if you’re stumped for ideas!


  1. Spend quality time with your kids.


Running after the kids can be challenging while working at home. Things like washing your hair might rank low on your priority list right now. For those times where you can’t wash your hair, dry shampoo is your friend! Shake a little bit of dry shampoo on your roots to keep you fresh, clean and stylish–whether you’re speaking to your boss or playing hide and seek in the park with your kids.
