If you’re feeling tech fatigue, take a breather and turn off your laptop. Put your phone in a box and do some low-tech activities to clear your mind fog and feel better.
Not sure where to start? Here are a few ways to spend a tech-free evening or weekend!
Get out and garden.
Gardening marries nature and nurturing and proves to be a go-to activity for people stressed out and on the verge of burnout.
Research plants that will thrive in your environment. Easy beginner plants are pothos, English ivy, snake plants, peace lilies and ZZ plants.
Think about which plants can survive in your space and survive a few weeks with some neglect.
Because it’s very stressful when your plants die.
Tackle a home project.
Starting and finishing a home improvement project will give you some clarity and control–something we’ve all been lacking lately.
Freshen up your closets, rearrange your furniture, or carve yourself a beauty space. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s a project that’s doable!
Revamp your image.
If your salon hasn’t opened yet–of if it has, and it’s been a struggle to fit in an appointment–use this downtime to figure out how you want your hair to look like.
If it’s not overdue for a trim or a cut, try experimenting with different styles. Our cordless curling wand can create different textures of curly hair–from loose, barely noticeable waves to full curls.
If you want to be playful and experimental, 90s hair trends–like the quintessential 90s flip–are easy to do with a curling wand. Grab your favourite curling iron and curl just the ends. Make sure the rest of the hair is straight for a proper throwback. Add in some butterfly clips to travel in time or use with sleek accessories for a modern twist!
Go for a walk.
If you tried gardening but your green thumb is nonexistent, a walk outside will boost health and your mood.
With summer almost here and restrictions easing, switch your scenery with parks, lakes or beaches. If you’re toying with a new look, take it for a test drive on your stroll. It’s a low-stakes way of discovering if it’ll work for you in the longterm.
Did you find out that maxi skirt you were debating is actually a little too sheer? You can either declutter it or wear a slip. Better now than when you finally can start dating in earnest!
Same with hair and makeup: a blustery day outside will tell you whether your faux bangs should be real bangs. And you’ll know if that foundation is still a match if you wear it outside and take a selfie!
