How to Thrive in Self-isolation

By isolating yourself from society, we are able to stop the spread from one carrier to another. 

As the world slows down and we are forced to sit with ourselves - a perfect opportunity has been created for introspection, creativity and forward planning towards a society liberated from fast-paced capitalism and consumerism. One where we are comfortable in our own skin, we have rebuilt the appreciation of community and have the skills to sustain a way of living far removed from dependency.

Here are some tips on how to thrive during self-isolation:

  1. Meditation helps to decrease anxiety & depression and increase alpha waves in the brain, resulting in a sense of relaxation.

  2. Yoga fuses mindfulness, meditation, pranayama and exercise into one holistic practise that has a plethora of benefits for both the physical and emotional/mental self.

  3. Prayer allows us to connect to the universal collective consciousness and look for guidance to navigate through unchartered waters.

  4. Listening to music (including mantras & chanting) lifts your vibration. Try exploring Deva Premal, Snatam Kaur, Jai Jagdeesh and the Gayatri Mantra.

  5. Take a bath with Epsom salts, essential oils, dried flowers and candles.

  6. Pamper yourself with a nourishing face mask or pedicure

  7. Experiment in the kitchen - try out those healthy recipes you may not have had the time to make in the past.

  8. Create an eating ritual removed from technology or devices where you express gratitude for the meal in front of you, focus on the flavour sensations as you chew and allow your body to fully connect with your meal as a source of sustenance and nourishment.

  9. Read a book or listen to an audio recording/podcast such as Pema Chondron, Adyashanti, Gabrielle Bernstein, Eckhart Tolle etc.

  10. Cleanse your home and lift your vibration - declutter, spring clean, sanitise, open the windows and purify the air.

  11. Get into the garden and plant seasonal crops that can provide a food source for you and your family for months to come. Gardening also helps to connect to the earth to balance positive ions and ground you.

  12. Sit in the sunshine to absorb the healing rays of Vitamin D.

  13. Get creative - draw, paint, colour, sew, knit, craft until your heart’s content.

  14. Have a dance party with your favourite music.

  15. Repeat affirmations to self – ‘I am Safe. This will Pass. I am Healthy.’

  16. Now is the perfect time to explore online courses and educate yourself on anything and everything that interests you.

  17. Have a virtual date with friends or family online using apps like ‘Houseparty’.

  18. Limit your news intake. Once-daily allow yourself to be informed then switch off.

  19. Deep diaphragmatic breathing - as recently shared on our Instagram channel. Be sure to connect with us on Facebook and Instagram for guided videos on meditation, breathwork and other helpful practices to support you during this much needed time in isolation. It is rare that we have the time to explore any of these lifestyle practices. Be positive and use this time as an opportunity to boost your immune system, delve deep within, hone new skills, reflect on your lifestyle and how you can take better steps towards a future that is more sustainable not only for ourselves but also the planet.
