Mar 30, 2020

They say home is where the heart is. Over the next few months, that saying will be put to the test like never before. Almost overnight, how we live our lives has seen a seismic change. Yesterday’s problems centred around choosing an outfit for work. Today’s issues involve doing all we can to stop the spread of a harmful virus. 

Science says the best way to halt the spread of Covid-19 (coronavirus) is for people to stay at home. Suddenly, Netflix and chill has taken on a whole new meaning, and now really is the time to appreciate speedy internet connections.   

Yes, staying indoors might initially seem like a sentence to house arrest. But we live in a world where instant technology keeps us connected — and we get to stay indoors while hanging out in our sanctuaries, whether they’re our family homes, bachelor and bachelorette pads, cul-de-sacs, penthouse suites or end-of-terrace houses. 

Staying inside could be worse. Much worse. 

Here at emoov, we like to think we know a thing or two about homes and what makes one special. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you manage the current lockdown imposed on the UK. In fact, we think the word “lockdown” is all a bit doom and gloom. So instead, why not think of the current circumstances as your ultimate staycation? 

Here are some essential tips to make the most out of your staycation.

Clean is serene

Being required to stay indoors means it’s even more essential to get your property sparkling clean. Not only will it make your home look more appealing while you’re living there; it’s also beneficial for your state of mind. 

You will find living in a super-clean home more enjoyable, and you can relax in your spotless settings — whether you’re catching up with some work emails, playing with the little ones or relaxing while watching the latest episode of Stranger Things on Netflix.  

A squeaky-clean home might not initially seem like a big deal, but it will go a long way to helping you feel more relaxed and stress-free during your extended staycation.  

Let your home take on a new meaning

You are going to spend plenty of time at home for the foreseeable future, so why not give each room in your house a different role? Turn the bathroom into an occasional spa where you can get away from the worries of the world. Even if it’s just for an hour or so. 

Make the front room an early morning workout zone where you can watch — and participate in — the latest YouTube fitness videos. Then head to the spare bedroom for a few hours of work before stopping by the dining room, which is now known as your new local restaurant. 

Outdoor living (at home)

As we head into spring, the weather is only going to get better, so treat yourself to a picnic or an outdoor garden event for the whole family (as long as they already live with you, of course). 

You can even turn your outdoor space into a mini working hub and enjoy nature while you finish that report about the numbers (it’s always about the numbers!). Alternatively, mosey on over to the backyard — or balcony — to catch up on some reading while enjoying the fresh air.

Lose the concept of time and unplug from the world

A lot is going on right now. While it’s essential to keep up to date with the latest information and play your part, it’s also vital to switch off every now and then. Schedule some time each day and reduce the visibility of your clocks. Doing so will help you lose track of time, just like you do when you’re on holiday. 

You will find out how relaxing it can be to lose the concept of time, even if it’s only for a few hours. Also take the opportunity to log out of social media and get away from the digital noise. Take a break from life’s 24-hour news cycle and constant flow of opinions and instead enjoy your homely surroundings. Doing so can boost your state of mind while providing the ultimate staycation experience. 

The ultimate staycation

These are trying times we find ourselves in. But there are ways to make the best out of the situation, and they take place inside your humble abode. A staycation can help you recharge the batteries so that you’re ready to go when normality resumes.
