6 things to do at home to face the quarantine - Week 4 From the relaxing aroma diffuser to the ideas for healthy breakfast

And here we are all, more or less, at the fourth week of quarantine, time seems to go slower and the days get longer - but spring has also come in the meanwhile, so this is not just a feeling!

The days at home are marked by moments of creativity, in which we dive into new projects, improvise ourselves as interior designers revolutionizing the home with new accessories, meditate or practice yoga, or indulge in relaxation or a sweet binge-watching of movies and tv series. It is not necessary to feel forced to be productive and reactive 24/7 in this situation, it is normal that a few moments of bad mood can appear. So why not engage in activities that free our mind and make us feel good again?

Here are some tips by nss G-Club for moments of self-care during this long quarantine.

 

1. 5 IDEAS FOR BREAKFAST 

Last week we made you feel hungry talking about the perfect cacio&pepe and other ideas of healthy recipes, this week we move on to the most important meal of the day: breakfast. Especially in this period, we have to take advantage of the free time in the morning to prepare a nice energetic breakfast, a little more relaxed than usual. From French Toast to cookies with white chocolate and cranberries for those who need energy, to the porridge with almond milk and red fruits or the chia pudding with matcha for those who love healthy breakfasts, then avocado & salmon toast for those who prefer salty even for breakfast. Enjoy!

5. THE 5 BOOKS ABOUT DESIGN TO READ

After the advice of the past weeks on books about beauty, fashion and sneakers, we have collected books about the world of design. It is such a large and varied universe that it is not easy to choose just 5 books, but we have tried to do our best. We chose Hidden Forms, for those who want to analyze and better understand what surrounds us; Snarkitecture, book about the most hyped design collective of the moment; The House of Glam, for those who love interior design; Daniel Arsham, for those who want to get to know better the artist of the moment; and Design - the Complete History, for those who don't want to miss any detail.
