It’s been almost two years of living in total ambiguity and fear; fear of surviving under lockdown, fear of stepping out with utmost safety, and an unexpected turn of events that made this year one hell of a rollercoaster ride. With a couple of days left for 2021 to get over, you must be waiting for things to mellow down. But have you paused and thought – are we ready to jump into another year? Especially when we’re mentally stuck in the past (2019)?
Okay, we agree; it’s better not to think of past hardships, but focus on the present and future. The events that fall our way tomorrow might not be in our control, but making the most of them certainly is. Keeping that in mind, we bring you a few simple mood and lifestyle uplifters that we tried and loved in 2021.
Fitness coach – Jess King
Over the past two years, almost every one of us lost track of our fitness goals. We couldn’t go for a run, hit the gym, or switch to our favorite Zumba class. But all thanks to the peloton coach, Jess King, some of us could switch back to a healthy lifestyle.
Every time her session would begin, she would push people so much that they’d just want to give up. But then she would look them straight in the eye and say, “don’t you dare… we’re almost there”. That zeal is what pushed so many people to achieve their goals, and in the end, the results are what matter, right?
Homefield logo t-shirts
If you’re someone who’s all about wearing old-school big print graphics or slogan t-shirts, you’ll undoubtedly love Homefield logo t-shirts. They come in a bunch of retro designs from naval academy prints to North Carolina A&T, and damn they’re comfortable. Not the sturdiest material you might’ve ever used, but not that bad as well. Considering the price range of $30, it’s quite a decent purchase and will give you those “back to college” vibes. If you’ve ever racked your brains looking for the best sibling gifts, this is sure to hit the bull’s eye! We loved ordering these and so will you.
It might sound weird, but we’re huge fans of tarot reading. Keeping a check on our future lives and upcoming scenarios really makes us feel less anxious and well prepared for what’s coming next. Putting ourselves in the right mindset and being aligned with the universe as well as our inner feelings keeps us well motivated and prepared.
So, if you’re one of us and relate to this entire situation, picking up a pack of your favorite tarot cards via Amazon at just $17 sounds like a fun activity. What you can do is, invite friends over and pick a card for each other, keeping in mind a certain situation. Trust us, it’s not a hoax; it just depends on your beliefs.
Summing it up
It wouldn’t be right to say that things have completely come back to normal. Sure, the situation might’ve improved, but that doesn’t mean it’s the time to toss off those face masks. We still need to wear a mask and follow the proper protocol until and unless the pandemic is completely swept away. But at least these little perks can be enjoyed to drive away the gloom, isn’t it?
