Self Care x Car Care
Look after yourself and your car during COVID-19
We all know how important car maintenance is, but under these challenging circumstances, we believe maintenance means more than looking after your car. Introducing Mitsubishi's Self Care x Car Care-helping you to stay in peak condition with wellness and DIY car maintenance tips. Use the hasthtag: #MitsuSelfMaintenance on Facebook and Instagram to share your best self & car care tips.
Find a Spark of Inspiration x Check Your Spark Plugs
Peak performance doesn't happen by magic - it takes regular maintenance and care. Keeping your car running smoothly can be as simple as changing your spark plugs every 30k miles, while staying sharp mentally might just take some new hobbies and interests. #StayHome #MitsuSelfMaintenance
Grab a Breath of Fresh Air x Change Your Air Filters
Keeping active can be difficult at the moment but try to exercise regularly (in keeping with government advice) and make sure you and your Mitsubishi get a much-needed breath of fresh air by checking your air filter every 15k miles. #StayHome #MitsuSelfMaintenance
Give your body the greens it needs x Change Your Oil
Owning your lockdown diet is tough when your pantry is full of snacks and easy-prep, low-nutrient foods. To keep in good shape and health, stock up (safely and by practicing social distancing) on leafy greens and healthy food. What goes into your car is just as important - change your oil on a regular basis to keep your car in tip top shape. #StayHome #MitsuSelfMaintenance
Dress to impress x Clean your belts & hoses
It's easy to forget if it's a Monday, Sunday or anything in between if you're wearing the same thing every day. Keeping routines - like getting dressed every day - can help keep things feeling that much more normal. Other good habits, like regularly checking your Mitsubishi's belts and hoses for cracks or damage are equally important because one day soon you'll be back behind the wheel.
Take time to recharge your batteries x And don't forget to check your car's
Working from home comes with its own challenges, like losing track of the work/play balance. If you swing too far towards work, you might find yourself burnt out. Just like proper car battery maintenance, it's important to take care of yourself and keep your batteries charged up. #StayHome #MitsuSelfMaintenance
Wipe away negativity x Check on your windshield wipers
It's easy to get bogged down by social media negavity and non-stop bad news at the moment. Wipe away both the news cycle negativity from your mind and inclement weather from your windshield to keep yourself positive and focused on the present. #StayHome #MitsuSelfMaintenance
Stay Hydrated x Check Your Fluids
Chances are you're not drinking enough water (almost nobody does!). Give your body and mind the hydration it needs and try to drink a bit more water every day. With your mind sharp and hydrated, it'll be easier to remember that your car needs fluids too - but definitely not water! Take the time every couple weeks to check the coolant or antifreeze, brake fluid, transmission fluid, windshielf washer fluid, power steering fluid and oil. #StayHome #MitsuSelfMaintenance
Rotate Your Tires x Rotate Your Workspace
When your home becomes your office, it can be easy to get stuck in a rut and not feel quite as motivated as usual. Switching it up and moving to a different workspace every couple hours gives you the chance to stretch your legs and refocus. Your tires, believe it or not, also need a change every now and again to avoid any uneven wear - we recommend you rotate them every 5000 to 7000 miles. #StayHome #MitsuSelfMaintenance
Go for a run x Run your engine
Keep your engines running - yours and your car's. Running can clear your mind and keep you fit - more important than ever during these difficult times, so rediscover your running shoes and stretch your legs safely. Just like us, cars need to run regularly to keep everything ticking along nicely under the hood, so try to run yours at least once a week. #StayHome #MitsuSelfMaintenance
