[WIN] July Month Survival Guide

Yay it’s a new month and with that comes new goal setting, new challenges and new life lessons. But we aren’t ones to take on anything we can’t handle and being the strong capable women we are. We can surely take on anything we put our minds too.

Starting Winter in July on Level 4 is tough and isolation can feel lonely and really take a toll on our mental and physical health, even if we’re not suffering from COVID. It’s important to ensure that to keep ourselves as healthy and happy as possible we’re staying connected and getting in as much physical activity as we can under these constraints.

Beyond just WhatsApp and FaceTime to remain in contact with friends and family, there’s a multitude of great websites that will allow you to hang out and do things together even if you’re physically apart. Try websites and apps that will allow you to watch movies with your friends or play games.

Teleparty – download on the App Store or Google Play

HouseParty – download on the App Store or Google Play

As much as it’s important to keep in touch, it’s also important to make plenty of time for all-important self-care. Rest and reset by doing something that you love and maybe even connecting to your creative side. It’s a great time to pick up a new hobby!

Also make sure that you’re getting some exercise, whether that’s yoga or a YouTube video that you can follow. It’s proven that exercise can help both your physical and mental health, especially in winter time.
