Ways to Stay Positive

There’s no doubt about it that this is a tough time for us all mentally, physically, and emotionally. However, it’s important that we stay healthy and continue to uplift ourselves and loved ones during this COVID-19 pandemic. Here are a few ways we can stay positive in the meantime!


Take 5 minutes out of your day to meditate on an app like Headspace. There tends to be a misconception that meditation means to totally clear your mind, but that’s not necessarily the case! While you meditate, you want to relax and allow whatever thoughts come to you, come naturally and embrace them in a calm manner. Trust us, you’ll feel way more focused and energized.

Listen to Music

Music can be so powerful, especially when it comes to healing. Jamming out to songs that are uplifting and have positive lyrics can really shift your mood when you’re feeling down. We created the perfect Positive Vibes playlist with songs from Beyoncé, Frank Ocean, Passion Pit, and more that you definitely need to listen to!

Order Your Favorite Foods

Food always cheers us up! If you’re not in the mood to cook, make an effort to at least order your favorite foods for takeout or delivery. From poke nachos to deep dish pizza, we’ve listed some of our personal favorites in Los Angeles. Take a look here!

Video Chat

Use your time to video chat with your family, friends, or even co-workers! Just because we can’t physically be together right now, it doesn’t mean we can’t communicate and see each other’s faces. Just that little form of communication can really brighten up your day or even give you something to look forward to. A creative way to also get some laughs going is to change your video chat background to a fun image! Click here for some that we recommend.

Have a Date Night at Home

Bust out the nice blanket, spread around some nicely picked flowers from the yard, and order your favorite fancy dinner for delivery. Plan a date night with your significant other or your roommate! It will bring some positive vibes to spice things up a bit while in self-isolation. We’ve got you covered with everything you need to make it a special one here.

Plan Out What You Look Forward To

Lastly, make a list of things that you look forward to doing once we’re allowed to leave our homes again. From going out to happy hour with friends, watching a movie in theaters, to jamming out at concerts, putting together this list will keep you looking towards the positive. Check out some of the things we’re looking forward to here and just remember, this is all temporary!
