Our fast paced world became even faster because of the onset of the pandemic. The work from home setting along with the online classes proved to be quite a hiccup for most Filipino households out there. In the midst of all this chaos, it is equally important to not forget to take care of ourselves. Instakart, an online grocery and delivery in Davao is one of your go-to places when you want to take a quick pause and enjoy your small wins. 

Now more than ever, practicing self-care is essential when it comes to taking care of our emotional health and well-being, says Christine Carter, PhD, a sociologist and senior fellow at the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California in Berkeley. "Self-care is not selfish," says Dr. Carter. "This is a time of incredible anxiety and stress. Focusing on what makes us feel nourished, on what gives us meaning, is part of easing those feelings and giving us a more solid foundation."

Cook your favorites. Nothing is more comforting than being in the kitchen, organizing what you need, and cooking meals that you love. Good nutrition is always important, but during stressful times there’s nothing better than a tasty, healthy homemade meal – especially if you made it yourself. To make this task easier and safer, Instakart’s Kitchen Essentials category has what you need. From seasonings to ingredients for a hearty soup, your imagination is the only limitation you have here. 

Invest in a good skin care routine. Good skin care is important for the following reasons: It helps your skin stay in good condition: You're shedding skin cells throughout the day, so it's important to keep your skin glowing and in good condition. An effective routine can help prevent acne, treat wrinkles, and help keep your skin looking its best. For great facial products, check out Instakart’s Health and Beauty products. 

Work out as much as you can. Spending a lot more time at home does not mean you get to be a couch potato. Staying active not only keeps your body healthy physically (keeping your risk of chronic health issues down and lowering your chances of acute illness, like COVID-19), it also helps up your mood and well-being. Exercise releases endorphins (hormones that make you feel good!), sharpens focus, and aids sleep. Having enough sleep also boosts your immune system which is much needed in a time like this. 

Make a music playlist. Music can make us feel so much better. Hop on Spotify and make a playlist with your fave songs. You could make a group playlist and ask your friends to add five of their favourite songs as well. If you want to get fancy, you could make several playlists for different moods/vibes.

Remember to take care of yourself too. It can be quite easy to be overwhelmed but taking a time off to breathe is okay. Do the things you love for you to be able to recharge.
