Like so many of you, I have been adjusting to reality during the COVID-19 pandemic. As someone who hardly watches the news, I am staying up to date. As my husband starts working from home, I am brainstorming ways to create content for all of you and support brands I love in the months to come. I am learning to find a balance between work mode, full-time motherhood, and staying in touch with my loved ones through FaceTime.
But above all else, I have been doing one simple thing, and I urge everyone to do the same: I have been staying at home. This is the only way to slow the spread of the coronavirus and to protect those who are most vulnerable to it.
I know staying home can feel like a challenge, but you can make it a precious space. It can become your sanctuary to find tranquil moments. For me, the most important place in my home is my bedroom and my bed. During times like these it’s difficult to fall asleep, so I try my hardest to create a very positive atmosphere in my bedroom. You really need to appreciate what you have, pause, and be thankful for the simplest things, such as your bedding.
My bedding is linen from SOL Organics made with the finest Certified European Flax in the world. It is light and breathable during this self-isolation. I don’t know how long we will be in this (together), but I recommend learning about your bedding. Linen is incredible for temperature regulating, so it’s a perfect fit year-round. Colours are also helping me a lot during this time. Surrounding myself with positive and calm hues like whites, blush, and soft yellows has created a happiness for me and my family while indoors.
SOL Organics is a bedding company that combines affordability with sustainability and ethical working standards. You can read my first article about them here. I’ve supported SOL for awhile and really want to share my love to them during this pandemic that has effected so many small businesses like them.
The coronavirus pandemic has really triggered a lot of other mental health things for myself and other people, so please create your sanctuary. Even if you are young and healthy and consider yourself invulnerable, you are not. Please stay home and self-isolate. Connect with your family, re-decorate your home, try and get creative and take this time to pause.
