Will school return in the fall? Is it safe to walk with my neighbor? Are my sinuses turning into something more serious? Raise your hand if you need a break from the news and never-ending deluge of questions it brings.
Many of us have been home for weeks on end now, with little more than the scenery inside our walls or just outside our windows to entertain and distract us. And frankly, we are just…tired of being stressed and anxious all the time.
We tried some new crafts and that helped, but we still feel the need to ease some tension.
You too? Then here are 3 ways to add comfort to get some relief (at all different price points) until we find our new normal.
1. Your Bed
Guess what helps fight off illness and makes us feel safe and cozy at the same time? A goodnight’s sleep, of course. Naturally, that means our bed has become extra important. No to mention we are spending more and more time there as a make-shift office and just quiet retreat from everyone when we need it during the day.
Step up your sleep and relaxation with a new mattress. Nest Bedding is one of our top picks because it is organic, non-toxic and all natural. There’s no weird new mattress smell, plenty of firmness options and a comfort guarantee. Check out these Nest Bedding coupons to save on your purchase too. Oh, and don’t forget to check out their bedding collection – we promise you’ll want to consider the best-selling Easy Breather Bedding Pillow!
2. Your couch
If you can’t sink into your couch or consider it a second possibility for a bed in a pinch, we strongly suggest finding a better one. In fact, there are some pretty amazing options at Club Furniture and Furniture.com right now that won’t break the bank.
New couch not an option? No problem, let’s talk about how easy it is to add comfort via throw pillows and soft blankets. Snag 25% off of either with these Macy’s coupon codes.
3. Your bath or shower
A long time ago we remodeled our bathroom and opted for an extra large walk-in shower rather than a bathtub. Cue the sad music because we now wish we had one that wasn’t in the kids bathroom. Still, there is no cheaper or faster way to add a little dose of luxury and relief than in the bath, or even shower.
For under $20, you can create your own spa-like experience at home with a new candle, oversized bath towel, or fancy product. Sage, lavender, lemon and orange are all smells that are said to reduce anxiety too so finding bath bombs or soaps in these scents could be just what you need to start the day off right.
May is also Mental Health Awareness month so we want to do our part in raising awareness about mental health. Now, more than ever is the time to know you are not alone and stay connected with community. If the recent pandemic is adding a lot or even a little stress to your daily life, these resources from the CDC might be very helpful!
