Food for thought

If you're looking for some gourmet guidance, check out a few of our favourite blogs like Food by Maria or Cooking In My Genes, which offer nutritiously delicious recipes for all sorts of diets, from vegan to gluten-free. The best part? Many of these recipes are easy to whip up regardless of culinary experience or expertise.
A whole lot of self-love
When it comes to showering yourself with love, embracing skincare can spark serious joy. No need for fancy serums or creams: from seasoned pros to skincare newbies, even something as basic as washing your face every morning and at night can have mood-boosting benefits.
Work(out) from home
Physical activity is a big part of wellness. Unfortunately, most gyms and fitness centres are closed for now, which means you'll have to make do by working out at home. Luckily, many of them are offering remote workout classes through video chat. Looking for something with a slower rhythm to stretch out your muscles? Yoga With Adriene will teach you the fundamentals of yoga, whatever your level of comfort.
Meditation is probably one of the most uncomplicated stepping stones along your path to wellness. It doesn’t require much to get into the habit, just a little peace. Beginners, start with an app like Calm or Headspace and follow a guided meditation. Just a few minutes of meditation leads to myriad benefits, from increased focus, decreased stress levels, heightened creativity, and the list goes on and on.
