The loco-down life: 3 tips to survive

The world will not be the same again. Blah, blah, blah. Boring.

What about creativity, huh? The demand for regular products has fallen, which means it’s time for creators who will show how not to go wild in a new reality with the help of irregular things. Use hand sanitizer and scroll your future wishlist:

  • The Sun blanket
  • The Social Distancing Gloves
  • Whatever with words “You`re too close”

The Sun blanket

Yes, we`re done with Voldemort, his name can not be pronounced (oops).. However, during global isolation, there are stricter taboo words that each of us utters with a sinking heart: “a barbecue”, “travels”, ”a big hug” or, omg, “A DIALOG”! Fortunately, Paul Cocksedge with Here Comes the Sun blanket found a way out for safe picnics. Now, in addition to sunbathing, you can become a part of the sun itself! The blankets construction was created in compliance with the recommended 2-meter distance. At the same time, Paul shares instructions for creating a blanket on his Instagram. Check it out and make it work!

The Social Distancing Gloves

Now things speak for you! Of course, it can be difficult to tell a person directly to stay away. But when, if not now? Liberals want freedom, but designers are already using it. America, represented by designer Joe Doucet, offers an alternative (speaking with the tongue in cheek) to warn strangers to keep their distance. Well, it’s not a bad way to look cocky in any situation.

Whatever with words “You`re too close”

On may 31, it will be exactly 10 years since the release of the single „Closer to the Edge“ by 30 seconds to Mars. However, in social networks Jared suggests to refrain from any kind of closeness. Unless only to the source of youth, which apparently he actively uses. On the group`s official website anyone can order masks with the popular phrase “ if you can read this, you are too close“. For each mask sold, the Mars store will donate a PPE mask to organizations that need it in their local community.

Send emails and postcards to each other. Now this is especially true when the reasons for congratulations come up with you, well, or the guys from Kaart Blanche do. Once it started with silly birthday cards for my family and friends, but expanded to a global goal: to improve communication of people around the world. Look at their website and get stuck there for a couple of minutes. By the way, they also have “If you can read this you’re too close “ masks. You`re welcome. 

Yes, here’s another, one of the company’s founders — Lars Lagaisse — Creator of Instagram masks “Which Kardashian are you?” and Which VB are you?” .
