COVID-19 – Six Ways For Brides To Conquer The Crazy Times

Hi beautiful brides,

It’s an uncertain time for us all, and we honestly don’t know what’s around the corner.

But that doesn’t mean looking out for yourself should be your last priority.

We’ve put together a few tips to brighten your day, inspire you and encourage you during this tricky time.

Stay active

Getting your body moving is one of the best ways to destress and relax, but it doesn’t have to be boring! We’re thinking Zumba parties with friends over FaceTime (extra points for retro workout outfits), wine bottle weights or sit ups assisted by your dog. Or if you’re looking for something a little less intense, head out to your local park or beach for some fresh air.

Donate blood

Helping others is good for the soul. With blood drives up and down the country desperate for donors, head along to your local blood bank to add some of your own liquid gold to the collection.

Working from home?

Spend some bit of time creating a beautiful, calm space for yourself. Schedule breaks, get dressed as if your headed to work and hunt down a few new plant friends to add to your collection, add an inspiring artwork and pop your favourite essential oils into a diffuser.

Shop local

Our fellow small businesses are doing it tough at the moment and would love your help. Pop into your local for a coffee and a cake, seek out some blooms to cheer up a loved one’s day or skip the big guys and buy from your independent grocer or butcher. You’re guaranteed a big smile and a great chat. And it doesn’t need to be in person (online shopping time!). Check out these #buyregional businesses for some inspiration.

Enjoy being inside

Find a new hobbie, read a book, snuggle up with your pet (or fiance!), send a meme, reach out to your friends and family.

Breathe

With gloom and doom coming at us from every direction, it’s hard to keep a level head. But remember, this too shall pass. Take a few moments each day to relax, reassess, breathe and log off social media.

In the future, we won’t remember the headlines and the social media posts, we’ll look back on how resilient we were, how we cared for each other and how we made the best of the situation.

Remember, we’re here for you.
