Things To Try During COVID-19

Canada is coming to its year anniversary of the start of quarantines from the current COVID-19 pandemic. People have been working hard to keep themselves busy and entertained at home throughout the stay-at-home orders and socially-distanced lifestyles that we have started to adapt as our new normals. Here we have compiled a list of new things and products to try in order to keep our quality-of-life high during these difficult times. Redfern, a local Canadian and Calgary run company is here to help keep your lives at home interesting and fun with our wide range of products and ideas. 

  • Experience the benefits of exercise
  • With all of the mental strain put upon us, staying physically healthy is important. As well as, with the potential for sickness from the virus, staying physically active to maintain optimal body and mind functioning is also necessary. Try going for walks around the neighbourhood to get in that active balance in your day. Additionally, clearing a space to do free workouts on YouTube can also help you stay fit. If direct workouts don’t seem appealing try dance workouts on YouTube! Dance workouts such as TikTok dance workouts are a super fun way to get up and dance with your family or roommates, while getting in that bit of exercise. Furthermore, staying active at home is easy with Redfern’s IQ Slim Treadmill! This is a compact treadmill that can be stored almost anywhere that's very easy to use, and keeps you active in your home without having to go out into the cold canadian winters while also keeping you safe by not increasing your risk of exposure to COVID by going to public gyms Redfern even offers used models of the IQ Slim Treadmill to allow you to own top of the line gym equipment in a very budget friendly way. 

  • Try massage therapy
  • As we know, the pandemic has caused many people to go through a rough time. The best way to relax and feel better both mentally and physically is with a nice massage. In addition to relaxation, massages promote circulation, increased mobility, reduced joint and muscle pain, and so on. Whether you be interested in foot massage with the BACKplus® Shiatsu Foot Massager with Air Compression & Heat, or Backplus® Shiatsu Kneading Foot Massage with Acupuncture and Air Compression, or BackPlus® Hands On Foot Massager, or even the BACKplus® Shiatsu Foot Massager. Or even multipurpose massagers such as the BACKPlus® PRO 3 in 1 Massager for Neck Shoulders and Back, BACKplus® Squirrel Massage System (handheld deep tissue massage), or BACKPlus® Shiatsu Back and Foot Massager - Redfern has you covered. Each massage targets areas of the body that need care and attention to make you feel better. With proper self care it helps to boost mood and high quality products like these give way better massages than your partner could give you. 

    • Experience luxury cooking

    Taking up a new hobby such as cooking, or even further working on your cooking skills is easy with Stoneline® Cookware. Why make expanding your cooking knowledge harder when you can try our non-stick high quality cookware? Non-stick cookware makes cooking easy by not tearing apart food, eliminating the use of fatty oils, and is way easier to clean. Try looking up cooking recipes on google or YouTube, and make yourself, or even your roommates or family, some delicious food with easy to clean pots and pans!

    • Finally do that deep cleaning

  • Give your space an upgrade
  • Tired of your same out low pressure showerhead in your bathroom, or that same stench coming from the litter boxes or your smoking roommate? Redfern has got you covered! With our best selling showerheads, you can finally turn your bathroom to an at home spa with a waterfall style high pressure flow. The ShowerMe® Shower Head comes in a variety of finishes to match your bathroom, and an additional purchase can give you that matching removable showerhead to make cleaning yourself, pets, and the shower that much easier. 

  • Experience your patio
  • I know what you're thinking, “it's cold outside, why would I go on my patio?”. But with Redferns variety of Veito® heaters, getting use out of that patio space is easy. Try the portable or even mountable heaters to get that fresh air without the uncomfortable chill of Canadian winters. As well, with restrictions becoming more lenient on outdoor gatherings, gathering outside with family and friends in your cohort is finally comfortable in the winter season. 

  • Catch up on those shows and finally try listening to that new music
  • With more time spent at home, Netflix and other streaming services can be your new friend. Is there a show you still haven’t caught up on, or a new documentary series you are interested in? Well now’s your time to finally get those TV hours in. If TV’s not your thing, or maybe you are so sick of watching TV at this point, try listening to all that new music that’s been released. You could even try listening to new music genres - you never know maybe country or metal is actually your vibe. Regardless, if you are using a mobile device to listen to music or watch shows and movies, try our variety of high quality wireless earbuds to get the full experience. Whether you try the Ultimate Earbuds model R-M9, R-Y1, or R-X10, you are guaranteed to enjoy some high quality wireless sound. 

    Now, Redfern acknowledges this is a tough time for everyone and hopes that these 7 things may have given you some idea for things to do during the pandemic, whether that be during breaks, quarantine, lockdown or so on. Remember to follow your provincial and federal guidelines and wear a mask to stay safe. We got this Canada!

    If you are wanting to purchase a FDA approved KN95 facemask, or a light up mask, or even a customizable light up mask Redfern also has you covered!

    Good luck Canada! Stay Safe and Stay Healthy!
