With these unprecedented times, it is hard to keep your mind at ease. In this blog post, we will show you four tips and tricks on how to better take care of yourself!
1. Mental Health: Be kind to your mind! This is a time where everyone is dealing with stress – it’s just how you deal with it. Pause, take a breath (see #3) and notice how you feel. Take breaks from reading the news and make time for your mental wellbeing by exercising and getting enough down time and sleep. You can take a long bath, put on a facial mud mask, or listen to a podcast. You can even do meditation or yoga. There are many ways to calm your mind – and everyone is different – so just find what works best for you!
2. Care for your Skin: It’s your largest organ! We’ve all heard it, the best way to stop the spread of viruses is by washing your hands. But take it a step further and moisturize them too! Too much hand washing causes dry, cracked hands. And each day, be sure to wash and moisturize your face. Caring for your facial skin means not touching it throughout the day as well! Only time it is okay to touch your face is when cleansing it at the beginning and end of each day. Genovo Skincare Daily Facial Cleanser will do the trick!

3. Breathe: This one is easy to forget. Breathing actually has a powerful effect on your skin! It increases blood flow to the face and the neck area, which ends up nourishing the skin with fresh oxygenated blood. Believe it or not, practicing deep breathing (the right way!) can give your skin a healthy color and vibrancy. Here’s how to do it: Inhale and count to 5. Exhale slowly and count to 5 again and repeat. Feel better? When you master how to breathe deeply, it will help you relax and become stress free. It calms anxiety and relaxes your muscles.
4. Enjoy the small things: there are times where you cannot see your family or work is keeping you ultra-busy. Take this time to relax and be home with your family. Work will always be there – but time with your family will not. Call a friend, a long lost relative, or take your dog for a walk. Take advantage of the time to tackle little projects you’ve been putting off, try tackling a new art project, play a game, do a puzzle – anything to easy your mind and calm yourself (and prevent stress wrinkles!).
In a time like this, enjoying the little things around you is important. Now is your chance and living in the present is the best way to do that!
