It’s hard to believe that at the start of the Year of the Rat, face masks would become hotcakes that people snap up. The novel coronavirus spreading furiously around the world makes the moment tough, many friends of NONAGON have to stay at home during the whole Luna New Year. It’s the worst of times, the winter of despair; yet it’s the best of times, the spring of hope. We genuinely wish all of our friends stay healthy and positive, always together we will face challenges and overcome hardships.
Even indoors there are many things you can do. This article is right about how to enjoy your moments of solitude, introducing two ways that could make your day.
Have A Brunch in Bed
Put those do-not-eat-in-bed caveats behind you for the time being, have the perfect combo of brunch in bed heal you. It doesn’t merely mean laid-back, cozy or relaxed, it’s a reward that a traditional breakfast or lunch has nothing to do with. Have yourself enjoy the most relaxing thing in the most chill place, the therapeutic effect will double.
An easy-to-make brunch with rich nutrition yet less soup seems a better choice for eating in bed. A bowl of salad, a dish of two slices of toast with avocado, bacon and a sunny-side-up egg, a bowl of cereal or Greek yogurt topped with berries, and a cup of hot mellow coffee, nothing starts the day off better than this set. You can simply complete the meal preparation with your daily kitchenware, and you can get what ingredients you need just at your fingertips, benefiting from those online grocery delivery Apps.
Frankly, eating in bed is a bit challenging. Fear eating in bed may stain your sheets? A tray or a serving board can graciously smooth the awkwardness out. It’s conducive to accentuating the meal and keeping crumbs off the bed.
Last but not least, top it off with your favorite reading material. This cool brunch doesn’t have to be over when the last bite is done. Lying back in a comfortable position and reading a magazine or a novel you like is the way we do encourage.
Create Your Planner / Journal
It is widely considered that creativity flourishes during moments of solitude. When you are not distracted by those on the outside, you will open more up the inner world. Being alone is a great time to explore an artsy business: writing a novel, learning to paint, playing guitar, developing a new song, taking up photography, and so on.
You may be wondering why we primarily recommend a planner here? As a planner involves several basic and major abilities to be artsy, ranging from writing, composing, painting to scheduling. A personal journal can reflect your personal style and help you keep track of tasks and accomplish what you need to.
Before starting, single out one notebook you prefer. Surely, deciding which planner to use can be difficult, as there are all sorts of miscellaneous schedule books in the market. The simple yet crucial principle is to choose one that chiefly meets your own demands, that means you need to ask yourself what’s your purpose to keep a journal. For time management, for daily to-do-list, for writing your life down or for travel notes? Once you know what you are doing, you are clear about what you need. Easy to carry, enough room to write and draw, more default sections to lead, or a loose-leaf notebook makes a difference.
One of the key knacks making a perfect planner lies in composition. The composition is all about the arrangement of structural blocks which are also known as columns. If you can envision exactly what you want in terms of layout, you can start with a ruler and various pens, and simply draw what you need. If it seems daunting (which usually does for beginners), borrow someone else’s from Instagram, Pinterest or Flicker. It’s a good and effective way to launch your planner business by imitating other successful “plannerista”.
Washi tapes, charming stickers, fun stamps, multi pens, highlighters and sticky notes are as well indispensable parts of a good planner. The colorful decoration can well remedy the defects of text and set the page off to vivid and advantage. Yet the large application of colors and labels is liable to harm visual delight. Leave it as the finishing touch seems to be a smart choice.
Solitude is a time for emotional and creative stimulation, for reflection, or to come up with a new business idea. Cherish the time you spend with your own is the first and important step to truly enjoy someone else’s company.
