You can sign up, discuss your preferences with a member of the vineyard’s team, and have the wine delivered to your door. You then log into an online guided tasting session with a sommelier. Many vineyards also provide a selection of cheeses and charcuterie to complement the delicious wines.
At-Home Wellness Retreat
We could all use a little pampering this year. With spas and wellness centers looking set to stay closed for the foreseeable future, many places offer virtual services instead. You can sign up for classes that last a weekend or a few days, and help you reconnect with yourself.

There are countless recipes online to help you choose the right formula. From facemasks made from items you can find in your kitchen, to ethical products that are all-natural, you’ll be able to find the best DIY beauty routine.
No matter your preference, there are plenty of new experiences and activities that can help to keep you fresh and energized during the pandemic. Thanks to technology, we can still enjoy many of the staples of luxury living from our own homes.
Consider taking some time out of your day to decide what will work best for you. There is no right or wrong way to move forward throughout the pandemic, and what is most crucial is that you do what feels right, and that helps you through these challenging times.
