How we can all survive Social Distancing……
Wow, what a week it has been, we are certainly living in unprecedented and uncertain times. With the latest government advice to limit social activity and unnecessary travel we wanted to share our top 5 ways to survive social distancing…
Do something fun with the family
Whilst at first working from home may seem like the perfect excuse to stay in and wear your Green & Pink Sarah Pyjamas, we imagine that by day 3 you will be feeling stir crazy. With cinemas, restaurants and theatres closing it may be tricky to keep the family, especially young children,entertained. Our friend TV Host Ria Hebden had these top tips for keeping the kids amused.
1. Football Cross Bar Challenge
2. Play Board Games such as Monopoly or Family Trivial Pursuit.
3. Family Video game challenges Parents Vs Kids
4. Sleep over party in the living room with hot chocolate and marshmallows.
5. Drawing challenge of things you see in the garden.
Look after your neighbours
If you are not showing symptoms and are able to get out to the shops try setting up a Whatsapp group for your neighbours. We can all do our bit to call on elderly neighbours and grab some essentials for those who are unable to make it out. And what a great opportunity to finally speak to that family you have been nodding to every morning for the past 5 years!
Get some fresh air if you can
It is really important for your mental wellbeing to get regular exercise. Everyone should still try to get outside if they can, if you stay at a safe distance from others you can still take the dog for a walk, or go for a run or bike ride.
Whilst the National Trust have announced that although they will be closing their houses, shops and cafés by Friday they will be keeping as many gardens and parklands open free of charge to encourage the nation to enjoy open space.
Don’t forget Mother’s Day
It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday and even if you cannot take her out for lunch you can still treat her. Try cooking a Sunday dinner for her or checking which local restaurants are offering a delivery service. One of our favourite’s Cupcake Lane have started a takeaway afternoon tea for just £10!
Obviously The Green & Pink Alexandra Gown is the perfect choice to make Mum feel special, but if you can’t decide what to buy her why not drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send you a gift voucher for Mum to decide for herself.
Support local businesses!
Our Friends Hester and Kelly at Hudia PR have offered the following advice to help small businesses survive these crazy times…
Buy a Gift Voucher from them.
2. Like them on social, like, share and comment on their posts. Or just add an emoji!😍
3. Refer them to friends & family.
4. Don’t ask for refunds.
Above all we hope that you, your friends and families all stay safe and well for the foreseeable future, sending a big virtual Green & Pink hug to you all.💚💗
