Here we are in Sydney, entering the third week of lockdown. Not our first, and possibly not our last, but we’re better equipped to cope with staying at home this time around, and staying connected to each other.
At nontre.co we love connecting with our community and sharing our tips for home and body care, and whilst we’re busy getting your orders safely to you we’ve also been taking care of ourselves with some of our favourite products.
We all have ways of making our home a haven, and this week our Marketing & PR Manager, Natalie Hughes has shared some of her lockdown tips with us.
Natalie, it’s the third week of lockdown in Sydney and we are all finding ways to create a daily routine to keep us motivated whilst still finding that lockdown work/life balance. Any tips?
(NH) This is a good question as it’s made me think, do I have the right balance? I mean has anyone figured out this balance 100% yet? Let’s just say it’s a work in progress! I do find that I’m more productive at home as I don’t have many distractions, however the snacking throughout the day...well I’m definitely eating much more than I would be at the office!
I’m someone that thrives on being busy and I’m always on the go so my one tip would be that no matter how much work I have on, I make sure I go for a big walk every morning. It energises me for the day and keeps me in a routine as if I was getting up to go out to the office. I also pick up a take away coffee from my local shop to start my day, however I think all of us are looking forward to a step back into the ’new normal' way of life!
With technology at the forefront of our lives, especially during lockdown, it’s so important to discipline ourselves with screen time. Reading an actual, physical book is the perfect way to escape our screens. What are you reading at the moment?
(NH) 100% - I’m currently reading Super Attractor by Gabrielle Bernstein. It focuses on methods for manifesting a life beyond your wildest dreams. I’m halfway through and plan to finish reading it by the end of lockdown. I’d definitely recommend getting your hands on this book!
With so many beautiful products to choose from at nontre.co, you must have a favourite? Or two?
(NH) It's so hard to pick favourites, but I have to admit I absolutely adore the Blu Collection Interior Perfume and Reed Diffusers... the Rare Blue Lotus scent is divine. Another of my top picks would have to be the Pine & Sea Minerals All- Purpose Cleaner . I use this product everyday, as I’m a bit of a neat-freak with keeping my worktops and benches clean and tidy! It leaves my kitchen smelling so fresh and clean with such a unique scent, I haven’t found this with any all purpose cleaners before!
Ok now for a serious question...nothing goes better with cleaning than a great playlist! What are you listening to at the moment?
(NH) This is hilarious, personally I’m such a fan of Rave Music. It’s my go to music for cleaning and really gets me in the mood! If I had to pick one song, it would be the “broomstick song” Check it out below... once you start cleaning with this song, you’ll be dancing around non-stop!
Oh gosh, completely kidding here haha... I’m actually a fan of 90's / early 2000 music!
I’m currently listening to Spotlight by Jennifer Hudson!
Natalie, thanks so much for sharing. Happy cleaning everyone!
Stay safe, love Nontre X
