We always related staying static to being relaxed. Without nothing to do and the couch as your best friend, who could find that situation stressful? Well, now that the world is in the middle of the lockdown, a lot of people now have an answer: being at home isn’t always relaxing. That’s what happens when you do work, study and socialize all in the same place. You’re eating dinner where you had your weekly meeting with your boss. Your friends are your company when you do a movie marathon at midnight. You’re never alone or you’re always alone, and you’re always just sat down somewhere in your house.
So everybody’s home, alternating between the bed, couch, and kitchen. It’s like you’re always on break or you’re never on vacation. So the last thing people expected to be is now the first thing in their minds. Everyone is stressed, and unwinding is as essential as anything you do in your life.
Your Typical Day with an Atypical Routine
You’ve probably realized by now that the routine that you found so dull and wanted to get out of gives order in your life. Waking up, making coffee, dressing up, traveling, and vice versa. We all took this for granted when it was still a big part of our lives. But now that you’re taken out of that cycle and plunged to something so alien, it’ll take time before you adjust properly to that life. Also, considering that humans are meant to be more active than static, this lockdown is putting us in a situation that not a lot of human beings ever faced.
No wonder your stress levels are through the roof
So before you start posting too much on social media because you’re bored and stressed and have no way to unwind, inject something in your routine. Something fresh or something that can help you relax, like a pair of massage chairs. Order these online, so you won’t even have to leave home. You can watch relaxation roll off the delivery truck and be parked in your living room. Considering that you’ll be home until the end of the year, this is an investment for you. Your health and well-being, which includes physical and mental, are the most important things right now. Anything you can do for yourself (if that means creating a new routine) will pay off once all this is over.
Going Out for a Massage Is Still Not Safe
If holding grocery items is a significant risk to take, as is touching anything that you’re not sure is safe, can you imagine if another person touches you? This person has touched other things and other people. It’s not really an indictment, but a statement of the reality right now. And if that’s not enough, there have been published articles about the risk of going for a massage or to a spa. It’s obvious enough: people gathering and a lot of touching will lead to transmissions. It’s not the time to risk your health for a release, especially when you can do it in the comfort of your own home.
If you’re lucky enough to be healthy and thriving, then it’s something you should treasure. You can also help people in ways that won’t put you in danger. But most of all, keep yourself in good shape and find a way to unwind in this static way of life.
