The COVID-19 lockdown has left many in need of a boost.
So, The Luxury Report has listed 4 things you can do to improve your health and wellbeing at home. Here’s how to stay healthy while social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Exercise and fresh air are essential for both physical and mental health.

Working out at home is another good way to stay healthy and productive inside. There are also numerous online workout sources, gyms and fitness instructors offering virtual classes and workout sessions.
(TIP: Physical activity doesn’t have to mean a gym-style workout, so any amount of movement you can try to squeeze in counts 😉.)
Perk up your mood and treat yourself to a pamper session at home. Whether it’s giving yourself a full-body scrub, putting on a face mask or enjoying a nice oil scented bath, create your own little luxurious spa at home and cleanse both your body and mind.
(TIP: Add a weekly mask into your routine if your skin has been suffering recently with the added stress and anxiety from the lockdown)
Aromatherapy meditation is an excellent way to relax your mind and body. You may not be able to visit a tropical destination now, but you can imagine that you are. Put some relaxing wave sounds on, diffuse your essential oils as coconut or mango and suddenly, you’re in a relaxing, luxurious island at home.
(TIP: There are numerous way you can use essential oils. Some can be inhaled, added to a bath or applied to the skin in a massage.)
Healthy Food & Nutrition
Stress eating and panic buying are common reactions to the pandemic. Numerous people are going straight for canned and quick goods and are trying to fill emotional needs, rather than their stomachs. But now it’s actually a good time to buy fresh produce when you can. They are exceptionally healthy and contain many nutrients. If you do however buy canned, dried or frozen products, choose the good that are low in saturated fat, salt and sugars.
(TIP: Plan before you stock up on groceries — both to ensure you pick up the right things, and to avoid panic-buying.)
