With COVID-19 pandemic posing restrictions within your everyday life, there’s no better time than now to start treating yourself. As you’re unable to go out and enjoy the activities you have always been used to after work or on the weekend, why not instead splash the cash by buying items that will make you feel better during lockdown? You don’t have to spend a fortune for something simple to make a huge difference to your mood and outlook on life. This guide takes you through four gifts you should consider treating yourself with over the next few months:
1. Satin pillowcases
During lockdown, it’s likely you’ll be spending a lot more time in bed than usual (after all, there isn’t much else to do!) and one of the latest trends is the use of satin pillowcases. While you sleep, your hair is put under a great deal of strain – especially when you toss and turn cotton; causing hair strands to go static and even break off. Satin pillowcases, however, are designed to prevent this from occurring. The softness of the fabric reduces friction and makes you appear much more put-together the following morning, as opposed to the classic ‘bed head’ look. What’s more, it has also been proven to be good for your skin by helping it retain moisture to reduce dryness and irritation.
You are living through one of the strangest and unprecedented times in history, so why not take the time to document it? Keeping a journal of your day-to-day activities will act as a reminder of what you got up to when the world was upside down and were unable to live life as normal. While doing so, you could also fill out your aspirations, patterns of behavior and what you feel grateful for. Although it may seem simple and unimportant to you right now, it will serve as a lasting memento to pass down the generations in the years to come.
3. A bunch of flowers
If you’re feeling a little down recently, why not treat yourself to a bunch of flowers to brighten your day? Who needs a valentine anyway? There are many online stores which give you a choice of bouquets at a range of prices that are smartly packaged and delivered straight to your door, so you don’t even have to leave your home.
4. A vibrator
The current pandemic has had major impacts on mental health, but studies have shown that masturbation can be one of the best ways to lower your stress levels. When you reach orgasm, it releases ‘feel good’ chemicals in the body known as endorphins to improve your mood and keep anxiety under control. As well as this, there have also been studies that show that it can be a natural way to relieve pain and especially period cramps. There are many different ways to masturbate and it’s all about finding a technique that works for you, however, one of the most common and effective ways of reaching orgasm is with Smile Makers vibrators.
