5 Ways to Look & Feel Good Coming Out of Quarantine

Quarantine has taken a toll on nearly every aspect of our lives and most of us just want out already. We’ve let so many things fall by the wayside — our mental health, our diets, our exercise routines and our wardrobes.

But coming out of quarantine means we should probably get back to our regularly scheduled programming and get back on track with the things we’ve been working toward. Here are five ways to look good and feel good coming out of quarantine.

1. Get Back on Track with Your Diet

If you’ve been slacking when it comes to your diet by consuming unhealthy, high-fat and/or high-sugar foods with limited nutrients, now is the time to get back to your diet. You want to come out of quarantine feeling and looking your best, and getting back to your diet can help you accomplish that.

Find some new online recipes or order yourself a cookbook full of healthy, delicious meals that you can make from home. You could even try meal delivery services to avoid the headache of shopping for each item. Aim for recipes that include plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products.

2. Continue with Your Exercise Routine

Getting back to your exercise routine can ensure you feel at your best once quarantine is over. There are tons of exercises you can do while in quarantine that can help you get your figure back and lose that “quarantine 15.” You can try exercises like:

  • Yoga
  • Glute bridges
  • Jump rope
  • Sit-ups or crunches
  • Squats
  • Ump squats
  • Forward lunges

Figure out what type of exercise you most enjoy and start setting goals. What do you want to accomplish? Do you want to lose weight? Tone up? Write down your goals and make a list of steps to take (or exercises to do) to get you there.

3. Get a Bodysuit

Buying a bodysuit can make you look good and feel good coming out of quarantine. They can be paired with jeans, shorts or skirts and dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Bodysuits come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and materials. From styles featuring lace and netted to leather and spandex, there are an array of styles from which to choose. Add a few bodysuits to your wardrobe to ensure your post-quarantine ensemble is on point.

4. Take Care of Your Mental Health

Taking care of your mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health. Quarantine has made some of us crazy. So, do whatever is needed to keep sane and tend to your mental health. This could include activities and exercises like writing in a journal, reading a book, meditating, or taking a nice, long bath. If you have kids, let your partner take over for a little while and take time to figure out what things you can do to make yourself happy. It can go a long way in helping you feel good once quarantine is lifted.

5. Make Plans for the Future

Making plans for the future can give you hope for when things finally go back to normal. Think about the kinds of things you want to do once the world reopens. Would you want to travel to a foreign country? Take a cross-country road trip? Learn a new skill that can open new opportunities in your life? Whatever your goals, make plans and write down exactly what you’ll need to make them a reality. Planning these things ahead of time increases the likelihood that you’ll get to do them, so start writing down some ideas.

Getting Back on Track

Coming out of quarantine looking and feeling better than ever is something we all want and can be accomplished by following the above tips. From getting back on track with your diet and setting exercise goals to buying clothes that make you feel confident and beautiful, you can come out of quarantine as the best version of yourself.
