6 Tips to have a successful Valentine’s Day during COVID-19

Bring back whatever makes you feel alive and in control of your emotions.

Undoubtedly this Valentine’s Day will hit different, especially since it is the first one we celebrate while officially quarantining. Thinking of love and romance during this challenging time might be the last thing on your mind right now, but for the sake of your mental health, now, more than ever, it is time to bring back whatever makes you feel alive and in control of your emotions.

And how do you do that? Only by awakening your senses. Whether you plan to spend V-Day with the most important person in your life, which is you, or you will celebrate with a loved one, indulging your senses with the things you love the most would potentially refresh your mind and bring positiveness to your precious life.

Humans have five basic senses, and all of them blast our brains with information that later helps us perceive our surroundings.

Find below how to explore and recharge each one of them from the comfort of your home.

Touch

According to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, touch is believed to be the first sense we develop. By touching a textured surface, we can go from uncomfortable to cozy.

To experience soft and warming textures, wrapped yourself into a Wondery - Explorer Wraparound Blanket. Made with heavy synthetic wool, this blanket is woven and weighted heavily to swathe and drape your body while cozying up by the fire - the blanket feels and looks so unique that it will exceed expectations with anything currently on the market.

Sight

Perceiving things through the eyes also has a considerable impact on your decisions. Whether you believe in love at first sight or you “eat with your eyes,” looking at aesthetically pleasing things is another way of awakening your senses.

Hearing

This Valentine’s Day, dance to the rhythm of your favorite music or listening to the sound of nature straight from the Echo Show 8. Or what about listening to the voice of someone you haven’t seen in months due to the pandemia. Remember, this day is not only for lovers; you can show your love to those people who have an essential role in your life. Use the Echo Show 8 and connect with someone special, like your Grandma.
