At Home Activity Inspo For Sheltering In Place | JOLYN
"Bored In The House And We're In The House Bored..."
If you're anything like us, you're desperate for any and all recommendations for easy activities to keep yourself busy during the quarantine. So we took a poll on the ol' Instagram for some activity inspo and we wanted to share the top answers with you all!
Starting with arguably the most important...
YOUR FAV RECIPES
Creamy Avocado Banana Green Smoothie by Minimalist Baker
"This creamy avocado smoothie is easy to make, requiring just 5 ingredients, 1 blender, and 5 minutes."
I mean....just look at this photo.
Best Ever Banana Bread by Sally's Baking Addiction
Lookin' to repurpose those splotchy brown bananas you forgot to eat?
"With its super-moist texture, buttery banana and brown sugar flavors, and incredibly soft crumb, this is the best ever banana bread recipe."
Make Your Own Açaí Bowl by The Forked Spoon
Feel like you're summering in Brazil with this super simple Açaí bowl recipe!
"Learn how easy it is to make your very own Acai Bowl right from home and enjoy this powerhouse of fiber, antioxidants, and healthy fats anytime you want for a fraction of the cost!"
YOUR FAV BOOKS
To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
"What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once?"
Color us intrigued. Reading is one of the best ways to mentally escape during this time. Maybe set a goal for yourself to read 1 book every 2 weeks!
(Amazon - $6.79 for Paperback)
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
An absolute classic. If you read it in school, reread it because we can almost guarantee you'll enjoy it a lot more when you're not just focused on dissecting the plot, climax, and symbolism.
(Amazon - $7.19 for Paperback)
Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis
"Challenging women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to discard, the behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to believing in yourself."
And we are here for it!!
(Amazon - $12.99 for Hardcover or Kindle)
YOUR GO-TO WORKOUT ACCESSORIES
Your Baby or Your Dog
If you have one of those, have some fun bonding time while doing squats, bicep curls, tricep extensions, or sit-ups!
No, we don't have a link for babies or dogs. Sorry.
Interested in making walking or running even harder than it already is? Throw some extra weight on those ankles!
But seriously, these babies are comfy and will have you breathing heavily in no-time (from personal experience).
(Amazon - $33.99 and free shipping)
Laying on the rock hard ground or your rock hard carpet is not ideal for your spine or any part of your body. Slip any of these Gaiam yoga mats under you and you'll be able to do a workout almost anywhere!
Don't like using weights but looking for a little extra resistance? We get it. So does Gaiam.*
"Features comfortable sure-grip foam handles and is ideal for traditional resistance band moves, such as arm curls, tricep kickbacks, and front arm raises. Includes a downloadable exercise guide."
Need some activewear to go with those workout accessories? We got you covered!
Oversized Tee and Shorts
Prefer lounging in a bikini (we're obviously biased but you said it!)?
Kim Cropped Hoodie
Last but not least, our Kim Cropped Fleece Hoodie. Look put together but feel cozy as heck in this thing!
We're on Spotify! Did you know?? Well, you know now...
Playlists for almost every mood because we are moody people and there's nothing wrong with that!!
Tiktok is one of the few things keeping us JOLYN employees sane during all of this. So we decided to join in and make some of our own. If you ever remake one of our TikToks please tag us (@jolynclothing) because we love you and want to leave you supportive comments.
That's all we got for now. Stay inspired and stay positive and remember that WE WILL SWIM AGAIN!
