It is important to stimulate the brain and get creative which is very important to your overall health. Get back into painting, drawing, or any other hobbies suited for home whilst staying indoors.

This week we catch up with the fabulous Deborah Brett.
Senior Contributing Editor at Red Magazine, Wardrobe
Icons and the ultra stylish mum of three. We discuss how
she's keeping sane during lockdown.
 
 

How do you spend your time at home during self isolation?

"My husband and I are splitting duties during this time, so some days I'm homeschooling our three kids in the morning while he can work on writing his new film scripts or go for a run and then in the afternoon he might do chess club or a drama workshop and I get to make some of my ceramics. Which hopefully means we both get to have some time off for meditation, exercise and work.

 

Do you do any at home exercise? If so do you have any recommendations?

"I'm a big fan of exercise but even more so now we are all on lockdown. I got a Pelaton bike for my birthday and Christmas this year. Not only can I do spin classes on it for great cardio work out but I can also do a yoga class or meditation through their app too. I'm doing Zoom online classes with my trainer and pilates too and my kids are loving their Joe Wick's workouts every morning. The whole family are making sure they get their endorphins rushing around their bodies and keeping our minds happier because of it!

How do you spend your time at home during self isolation?

 

"I try to break the day up into units of time like Hugh Grant in About a Boy.

Hydrating face mask, one unit. New York Times, one unit, live pilates class with Julie Pujols Benoit 2 units, cooking a new pasta recipe, 1.5 units: a very long classic saga film you'd watch otherwise: 3 units! When my siblings and I were little my mother used to remind us that only boring people get bored."I thought it was such an annoying thing to say. But now I find myself repeating it to myself as a daily motivation to make the best of things right now!"

What are your book/podcast recommendations?

I'm aiming to read before lights out, even if it's just a few pages. I'm currently reading the epic 'A Little Life' by Hanna Yanagihara and I'm also a huge fan of audio books, I recently listened to Eckardt Tolle's 'A New Earth' and it's life changing. I can't recommend enough to listening to his soothing voice at a time like this. His theories on how to live are especially relevant now.
