Quarantine Series: 5 Brands Who Did COVID-19 Right

Welcome to another blog in the "quarantine series" I decided to do for the next few months since we are all on lock down and do not know what is going on!

Quarantine Series: 5 Brands Who Did COVID-19 Right

If you read my other blogs, you know my story. I did an eleven month mission trip to eleven different countries. I lived in Africa for four of the months. I partnered with ministries based out of refugee settlements and ministries that were 3 hours away from the nearest city or store. My months in Africa felt a lot like this, but luckily I have a bed and a shower now.

When I was going into this quarantine, I knew exactly what I had to do to stay sane. I want to share what I did and what I am doing now to see if it will help you get out of the social distancing blues. I have seen so many people say they are just going to sit around, relax, and catch up on TV. Well, I did that in Africa (yes we had Netflix) and it hurt me for the worst. I am getting vulnerable but I experienced another level of sadness and loneliness I have never felt before.

I think this is a beautiful time to get stuff done, accomplish some goals, and come out better than you were before. Hopefully my story and tips will help you!

We Wore What

I know I keep bringing up Danielle Bernstein but she never ceases to amaze me. Literally, how can someone be so business smart but street smart at the same timing (meaning, she can read the room)? During the pandemic, not ONLY did she consider CDC Guidelines but she also created another brand within her plethora of brands. She also became a best selling author but no biggie.

During the pandemic, she created We Gave What where her team would highlight small businesses, volunteer opportunities, and just shoutout's/praise in general. She also used her 2 million follower personal account to chat with local business owners and share their stories. She's incredible. I watched Netflix and barely passed school during the pandemic.

Mind Body Green

Two words. Community classes. Who else became of fan of Zoom meetings, Instagram lives, and free video content provided by all their favorite companies?! Mind Body Green released a weekly schedule for their Community Classes. Some classes included; Foods + Habits, Community Asana, No-Bake Cookies, Self-Care, and Leadings of Meditations.

The Wing

The Wing was my dream community for the longest time. However, due to COVID-19, it is struggling to regain it's wings. Even during the process of releasing their statement of closing their doors for the time being, they still prioritized their girl power community by holding constant conversations with business professionals and being a resource for independent business owners. Give them a look and see how you can support their mission in the future!

The Madison

I am from Arizona so this is a bias but The Madison did it RIGHT. The Madison is a very popular yoga + spin studio in three different locations in Arizona. I remember it being the first week of the "lockdown" and they were already releasing live workout classes and schedules. They kept it so well branded too. I always knew I could rely on them to get my daily workout from home.

Olive & June

This was is a little random but they made nail painting at home COOL again and they made a PROFIT. Olive & June, popular nail polish and art brand, created Mani-Camps where you ordered a kit, followed their lives, and they taught you how to perfect the mani + pedi. Like what?! Talk about a business brilliance.

"New Girl" is one of the best sitcoms of all time. Honestly, it is so much fun to watch, so much fun to relate to, just all around a great show.

Not only is a great show, it has so many different great settings, obviously including the loft. If you live by Nick Miller quotes and desperately tried to learn how to play "True American," you need to buy these things because you are a true "New Girl" fan.

5 At-Home Therapy Tips You Need, No Matter What Your Therapy Routine Is

Whether you're in a Zoom session or live-chatting, make sure your home therapy space is good to go.

No matter what stigmas you held about therapy before this year, I'm sure 2020 has affirmed that we could ALL use a nice long therapy session. Between wildfires that took over an entire continent, a global health crisis, and what's sure to be one giant circus of an election in the United States, we need help and we need it now.

The fact of the matter is, therapy has been a helpful, valid resource long before the world decided to become one giant dumpster fire. Having a safe space to discuss what's going on in your life, worries you have, and struggles you're facing has become a very normal thing for individuals' mental health.
