Social Distancing - The Silver Linings Playbook
“I don't want to stay in the bad place, where no one believes in silver linings or love or happy endings.”- Mathew Quick -The Silver Linings Playbook.
Home Sweet Home has taken on a whole new meaning with the current recommendations for social distancing. Here we are in these unprecedented circumstances, told to stay at home and hunker down for the safety of all. By nature, I’m wired to try and find the positive in most situations. I often joke with our Zjoosh team that even my blood type is O Positive. I try to find the silver lining to every cloud knowing that no amount of panic or negativity will make those clouds go away. So, without in any way wanting to minimize the seriousness of the current situation, here are my musings on why being told to stay in needn’t feel so bad, and how we at Zjoosh can help you make it even nicer over these next “indoorsy” days.
- More Time together - Sometimes it seems there is never enough. This past weekend with cancelled activities, our little family took some time to prepare nice meals to enjoy together, read books and watch movies. – Not so bad huh! It’s a good time to snuggle under warm blankets and cuddle up on the sofa together.
- Take Time For You- Take a long hot bath by the light of a beautiful scented candle. Use our bath salts or a body scrub, inhale the fragrance and listen to your favourite podcast.
- Hop into your PJ’s early. Have you noticed it’s a bit chilly in the evenings, so get cosy in our new Ginger Lily PJs, robes and slippers and relax with our wheat packs and heat packs. Breathe in and breathe out forgetting all the madness just for a moment and enjoy the quiet. When is the last time you made time just for you? Make staying at home the ultimate luxury experience.
- Make your surroundings more beautiful - With more time spent in your home, you might decide to rearrange that bookcase, or restyle your dressing table. It’s amazing how little things such as grouping your perfume collection on a pretty tray can create a feeling of romance and luxury.
So while we can’t control what is actually happening out there, we can make the best of the situation in front of us right now and we are here to help you do just that. We want you to know that we are still here for you and ready to serve you on your terms. Our stores are open and our Zjoosh women are taking extra precautions to disinfect surfaces and are diligently washing their hands after every interaction.
We are extremely conscious of your safety while doing our level best to provide you with the care and attention you deserve. Our online team are wrapping and packing your order in a sanitized environment and are dispatching to you as quickly as possible. If your item is a gift, we will gift wrap beautifully for you with our compliments as always.
Customers are warmly welcomed in stores, but we are also happy to take orders over the phone and have items wrapped and packed for your collection at your convenience. Call your store and chat to our team about how we can help you. In the meantime stay warm, cosy and healthy. With love from Zjoosh.
