5 Things You Now Have Time to Do
You know those little tasks that are always at the back of your mind but aren’t deemed important enough to actually make it to your to-do list? Well during these quarantine days, I think it’s the perfect time to get them done. Here are some of my tasks that we all can finally have the time to accomplish!
Oil train your hair!
Oily hair isn’t always a bad thing! Especially if you are training your hair to produces LESS oil, so that in the long run, you won’t need to wash it as much. The idea is that the more you wash your hair, the more your scalp is deprived of oil, and the more it will overproduce oil. This is why some people feel like they need to wash their hair every day, because it still looks oily soon after. By going longer in between your hair washes, your scalp will slowly become used to keeping its own oil and produce less.
Since we aren’t going outside anymore, you don’t even need a cap to cover up that greasy hair while you’re oil training! You can start with adding a day between your hair washing days and then slowly increase up to 7 days between washes!
Forgo the usual mascara and apply castor oil on eyelashes and eyebrows instead
Mascara is one of those makeup items that really makes a difference on most women. But what if your lashes themselves can become super long and thick? Castor oil contains rincinoleic acid, which nourishes and protects the eyelashes from breakage. Many people put it on their eyelashes and eyebrows at night to help support eyelash growth. After a few weeks, their eyelashes will appear longer, fuller and more lush. If you forgo mascara throughout the day, you can try applying some castor oil with a cotton tip onto your top and bottom eyelashes, as well as your eyebrows. It helps soothes the damage done by years of eyelash curling and even eyelash extension use!
Delete all the random and useless files on your computer
You know all those random files on your desktop or in your downloads folder? It’s time to make some extra storage space and delete those old files that we never think of deleting. But these days we are probably constantly on our computers and could certainly use the extra storage space!
Take inventory of your fridge and freezer
There’s never been a more important time to make sure you have adequate fridge and freezer space as now. Although you don’t need to stock up on foods yet, it’s smart to have a good amount in your house in case. And if your fridge and freezer are full of expired or foods that you don’t eat anymore, you can spend some time really taking the time to look through everything and seeing what you don’t need anymore.
I recommend taking everything out of the fridge/freezer section by section so you can see what you have. Then, only put back what you will still eat, and throw out what is expired. Or, check if the food has actually gone bad. Most foods that are expired are still fine to eat, do so at your own risk though!
Clean up your supplement routine!
The health food store supplies are dwindling fast, now that everyone wants their supplements to boost immunity. Most of you are probably taking a few supplements already, but have you checked if they are truly giving you benefits and not just another step in your daily routine? You don’t want to be spending more money than necessary on supplements if they are not the right ones for you.
In my new ebook, Simplifying Supplements, I guide you through each supplement and teach you how to know if what you are taking is right for you. That way, the next time you go to the health food store (or online), you know exactly what to buy!
