The day is finally upon us! Are you excited? Nervous? Stressed? Completely over it and checked out? We’re right there with you. One thing we can all agree on is that stress levels are at an all time high, but we believe the key to getting through the madness is to slow down and stock up on all of your tried and true creature comforts. And we’re here to help. So here’s the plan:
STEP 1: Stock up on the essentials! What are your go-to comfort foods? Make a list of the things that make you feel the coziest and head to the store. Here’s what’s on our list:
a. Underwood Canned Wine (duh)
b. Frozen Pizza
c. Brownies + Chocolate + Frosting (go big or go home!)
d. Cookie Dough
e. Tissues…maybe we will cry tears of joy? Either way be prepared!
f. Bedtime Necessities
i. Underwood Bubbles
2) Prepare: Get comfy and don’t forget your mental health
a. Download your favorite meditation or relaxation app in-case you need to take a little break…or a few.
b. Put on your pj’s, it’s going to be a long night
3) Here we go!
a. Pop open that can, or cans, or bottles.
b. Get to work on that pizza. Make sure to have a side of treats close by. We give you full permission to eat the whole pizza. Stress eating is normal and natural, we won’t judge.
c. Don’t forget that outside exists! Go for a walk, play with your pup, or just get some fresh air. It’s 100% ok to leave the house in PJ’s and sneakers. Maybe the only good thing to happen in 2020?
a. Make yourself a cup of sleepy time tea
b. Draw yourself a bath, light some candles, set out the crystals
c. Grab an eye mask and some earplugs
d. Put on some soothing tunes and doze off
5) Good morning! Congratulations! You made it! Celebrate with an extra cup of coffee, or a mimosa if you are waking up to good news! You deserve it.
Pro tip: brownies are an acceptable breakfast choice today.
