An escalating effort to contain the outbreak of the new coronavirus means that millions of people are now working or studying from home. Though self-quarantine might sound manageable or possibly appealing at first, even the most introverted of us is going to go stir crazy after a bit -- especially if you've got kids cooped up inside.

We've rustled up some of our favorite ways to stay entertained if you're self-quarantined or practicing social distancing in the weeks to come.

In a move that would have been unthinkable just months ago, quarantine and social distancing have now become commonplace globally as governments make concerted efforts to fight the spiraling coronavirus outbreak.

The measures, which have seen citizens from the U.S. to India either encouraged or enforced to stay in their homes, are deemed by medical experts as necessary in reducing the spread of the virus. But, the implications for people’s mental wellbeing cannot be overlooked.

Psychology experts share their tips for safeguarding your mental health during quarantine:

03/20/2020

As it stands, the most recent Covid-19 update encourages self-isolation of anyone with symptoms or anyone living with someone experiencing symptoms, for at least fourteen days, plus advises many of us to "socially distance" with measures like working from home. Government representatives explain that this approach means the spread of the virus should then be "slow and steady", enabling NHS wards to deal with the number of patients over an elongated period, rather than all at once.

The prospect of staying at home for any prolonged period of time can seem overwhelming and a little scary, especially if you’re someone who enjoys keeping fit and active and hitting that daily step count, or an older person who might be worried about feeling isolated.

Rather than letting the isolation scare you, why not, instead, try and embrace it as an opportunity to get your sweat on with new, at-home workouts you’ve never tried before, incorporate more simplistic healthy habits into your daily routine and mix things up a little.

Whether staying active, to you, looks like yoga in the living room, running up the stairs or having a go at weighted arm exercises with tins from your cupboard, there are plenty of ways to keep moving even when you can’t get outside.

Here’s the cold hard truth:

Many women have grown up being told their talents are fixed and limited. It can be a huge battle to believe in ourselves and remove the idea that we do not have the ability to be great.

I’ve read multiple books, attended workshops, and listened to the podcasts of some of the most empowered women in the world. I realized every single one of these successful women had 1 trait in common – the growth mindset.

Bottom line, it’s the mindset that sets successful women apart from all others.

In essence, there are two types of mindsets we typically possess in life:

International Women's Day History:

International Women’s Day celebrates women’s achievements throughout the world. Its purpose is to promote women’s equality, encourage support for repressed women and promote appreciation toward women everywhere. Many organizations, including the United Nations, use this day to also celebrate extraordinary achievements of ordinary women.

International Women's Day was initially promoted by the Socialist Party of America. In 1909, it designated this day in remembrance of a major strike by the International Ladies’ Garment Workers Union. The holiday is now recognized internationally and is an Official National Holiday for many countries, including: China, Russia and Ukraine.

Many women tend to ignore their mental health, believing mental issues only happen to people with disorders. This statement is far from true. We all need to take some responsibility for our mental health to ensure it’s as good as possible. Many things can affect mental health, including our work and home environments, and what we eat and drink.

Here are a few mental health tips for women.

They say 40 is the new 30, thanks to healthier habits. Yet, women (like men) continue to struggle with weight and other medical concerns as they enter their 40s.

Both your nutritional needs (the food and water) and your metabolism (how fast your body converts food to energy) change at this age. Your metabolism gets slower. Women lose about half a pound of muscle per year starting around the age of 40. That makes losing weight even more difficult. Some of the changes women experience are due to decreased hormones, reduced activity level, and medical conditions.

As a female Financial Advisor working in an industry traditionally dominated by men I find myself in the unique position to empower women to pursue their financial goals.

Many of the women I have worked with have made great progress, but industry studies point to a startling fact: when compared to men, women fall short when it comes to investing and saving for retirement.

Instead of concentrating on the differences between men and women and the reasons why women are falling short, I prefer to focus on some core concepts that all women should consider in order to improve their finances.

02/15/2020

With Valentine's Day weekend here, the fact that February 14 is just another day may slip your mind, thanks to all the hype surrounding the "most romantic day of the year." While some may consider V-Day a day to plan the most romantic evening of the year for their SO, others use that mid-February day to focus on self-love instead of romantic love. If you choose to practice these self-care ideas for Valentine's Day, use them to redefine the "most romantic day" and make it your day.

Self-care is one of those things that may get put on the back burner when you get too busy with work, family, school, and all that good stuff. And while that's totally understandable, it's important to recenter and refocus on yourself once in awhile. After all, you're stuck with yourself forever, so the relationship you have with yourself should be cultivated mindfully.
If you've been too busy lately to dedicate some time to you, you may start to feel like it's taking a toll on your body and your health. Incorporating these self-care ideas into your Valentine's Day this year could help you feel re-centered, but don't just stop there. You can (and should!) make them a part of your everyday routine. (Or at least weekly or monthly!) You're a queen, always remember that.

1. Buy yourself flowers and chocolate.
2. Treat yo self to that piece of jewelry you've been wanting or that book that you stare at every time you pass the bookstore around the block.
3. Journal everything you're feeling or thinking.
4. Bake yourself a sweet treat, because you can't go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie (or six).
5. Choose the bath bomb of the night and relax. Add a glass of wine, some candles, and maybe even a book, and you're bound to have a wonderful night.
6. Make your own body scrub, because DIYs are great for you and so fun to put together.
7. Cook your favorite meal, and don't forget to make (or buy) dessert!
8. Unplug from social media, or all technology, if you want to take it a step further. And yes, that means no Netflix or Hulu.
9. Plan a Galentine's Day with all your girls. Drink wine, eat chocolate, order takeout, and watch your go-to guilty pleasure TV show or movie.
10. Take yourself out on a date to the movies, to dinner, or to that dance class you've been telling yourself you're going to check out.
11. Make yourself a care package and spoil yourself.
12. Write yourself a love letter, where you mention at least three things you love about yourself.
13. Crank up the music and go full Meredith and Cristina, and dance it out. Or sing, if that's more your thing.
14. Do what makes you feel good. Maybe that's going to the gym, or the hot yoga class you stopped going to for some reason. Whatever it is you love to do, go out there and do it.
15. Spend the night practicing those makeup tutorials you've had bookmarked on your computer for months.
16. Do something you've been telling yourself you're going to do but never actually get around to doing, like hanging up posters or KonMari-ing your closet.
17. Practice mindfulness. Meditate.
Happy you weekend, girl!

While boxes of decadent chocolate treats, celebratory champagne and romantic, high-calorie dinners may dance in your mind as a way to celebrate Valentine's Day, your heart may be pining for something else. With Valentine's Day here, it is a great time to look at the state of your heart.

Despite recent progress, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death women in the United States," said Dr. Sheila Sahni, interventional cardiology fellow at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and the UCLA Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Health Program. "Making heart-healthy lifestyle choices and taking control of your cardiovascular risk factors can help prevent or slow the progression of heart disease.

Everyday decisions are important to cardiovascular health, she added, and Valentine's Day is a good time to give yourself the gift of lifestyle changes that will benefit you through the year. Check out these tips.
