Putting Your Best Foot Forward During Lockdown

Written By Shola Asante 14 Apr 2020

Old phrases have taken on new meaning in these unfamiliar times.. Here is what putting your best foot forward now means to us.

Putting Your Best Foot Forward During Lockdown

We’ve all heard some variation of the old adage: ‘You can’t control everything that happens to you, but you CAN control the way you respond.

These are certainly unprecedented times. For us at Sante + Wade, putting our best foot forward is about acknowledging that things might feel pretty overwhelming at the moment, but we’re choosing to stay calm and focus on the things we can control.

Here’s a list of some of the things we’ve been thinking about.



Supermarket delivery slots have been tricky to find and the 2 metre rule makes it hard to just nip in and out of the shops. Still, if you’re up for it, now is the time to get creative in the kitchen. Experiment with whatever you’ve got in the cupboards and release your inner chef.



The pressures of modern life can sometimes make it hard to keep up with family and friends,  but there has never been a better to time to stay in touch and reconnect. We can’t do it in person but there are tons of applications that make it easy for us to reach out to others. So pick up that device and get chatting.



Who knew that extended screen time could actually expand our options rather than limit them. So rather than crumbling under a deluge of anxiety inducing news and stats, why not use this time to learn something different. Ever wanted to learn how to crochet, tango or paint? Anything you want is only a keyboard click away.



Nowhere for now, except to the shops or for some exercise. However museums around the world have opened their virtual doors for us all to see. So go an a journey around the world and visit MoMA in New York, Musee D’Orsay in Paris and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence all from the comfort of your sofa.


Be well people and take each day at a time.

Stay positive. Stay Safe. We'll be in touch again soon.
