1. Learn to walk in high heels

'It doesn't just lengthen legs, increase height and tighten calves & thighs; it also has a direct & positive psychological effect, turning you into Super-You.'

When we wear heels our inclination is to walk with our neck & bottom stuck out and legs splayed - this should be avoided. Instead, push hips forward and pull shoulders back. Putting one foot in front of the other ensures the catwalk slink; hips naturally flow in a figure of eight. Avoid dragging the feet; land ball first then heel. This will also give a better hold upon different terrains. 

Bring back the heel we say! 

2. Cook a new recipe 

If you can't travel to a new city or even your favourite restaurant; now is the time to practise it at home. Maybe you have a craving for Thai food, Goulash or Sushi?

Time to put your chef's hat on and create something wonderful. After all food does warm the soul. 

 Some popular lockdown recipes include:

  • Cinnamon rolls
  • Banana bread
  • Palm Heart Fettucine Carbonara 
  • Shakshuka
  • Churros
  • Scones
  • Chicken Paprika

If preferred, now is a good time to sign up and make the most of Hello Fresh or Gusto.

3. Get reading

We usually save our reading for holidays and holidays only. Whenever I get reading on holiday I always say to myself that I should be doing this weekly and not just on holiday!

Now is the chance when you have an hour free each day to open up a book. (Who would have thought that Netflix & Instagram can actually get boring.) 

 

4. Exercise

Maybe a daily stroll is enough, an online yoga class once a week, maybe running 1k every day to see your improvements.

Whatever your targets are; you are bound to see the difference & improvements by the end of lock down.

Also make the most of the time allowed outside and soak up that well needed vitamin D.

 

5. Break in a pair of shoes

My absolute favourite idea is this!

Wearing a new pair of shoes can make you feel so different. It can lift your spirits, change your outlook & bring you new positive vibes. So why not wear a new pair every day?

Not to mention now is the time to break them in ready for when you are allowed out. Comfy feet here you come!

 

6. Learn a language

Maybe you've had some travel plans cancelled? Be transported to another country by learning the mother tongue. Learning just a couple of phrases a day can be really beneficial. No need for the commute anymore so free up some time to practise those phrases.
