Prioritizing wellbeing doesn’t have to mean a trip to an expensive spa or investing in a pricey fitness subscription. The Jansport blog shares easy ways to practice self-care, especially when everyone should be staying at home.
With the pandemic going on, days may seem frustrating to people who want to go exploring but, weirdly, present a good time to settle in with some self-care on a budget. Here are some ideas that won’t break the bank and can be done at home—or wherever social distancing is happening.
PLAY FREE YOGA VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE
Right now, fitness buffs are getting so creative about exercising alone, together.
And the biggest vault of free workout stuff will be YouTube, forever and always. And yoga’s the perfect activity, whether someone wants to feel less out of shape or just chill out for a sec. Search “free yoga” and thousands of videos for every type and skill level come up (a ton of stuff for beginners—phew). Not only that, but instructors have entire video series that anyone can take, just like regular classes. Pack up a Jansport SuperBreak backpack with gear, head out to your yard or secluded green space, plug in headphones, and go.
DIY THE PERFECT AT-HOME SPA DAY
Instead of packing for that (probably delayed) festival, get supplies for a spa day from home. Drug store face masks, bubble baths, exfoliating body scrubs, bath bombs, massage oils, and nail polishes are cheap, fun, and totally customizable for everyone’s beauty needs. Relaxation doesn’t just have to be for the girls, either: Almost everyone can appreciate a new soap, shampoo, or scrub brush. Bonus: Everything fits comfortably into a Jansport Accessory Pouch to store away for the perfect relaxing moment (or just a random stressful weeknight—it’s great whenever!).
LEARN SOMETHING NEW THAT’S ALSO EXCITING
This might not sound fun—but give it a second. Discover Quentin Tarantino’s writing process and learn how to write dialogue. Hone those photography and video editing skills. Learn how to practice outdoor ethics for that next big trip, exploring the world responsibly without damaging the environment.
Now that your Jansport Big Student backpack isn’t totally stuffed full of books and a laptop, fill it instead with empty notepads, fun reading, a tablet, headphones, and anything else that makes the process more enjoyable. Then head off to a quiet, secluded space to dive deep into that passion project. This is the perfect time to do it.
