5. ENGAGE IN ACTIVITIES YOU ENJOY AND LEARN A NEW SKILL
Engaging in fun activities can help you relax, and take your mind off a difficult situation. If you are having extra free time at home, use this as an opportunity to learn a new skill, such as read a book, learn a new language, sign up for an online course or improve your fitness levels by trying out new workouts.
6. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ACCESS TO RELIABLE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION
If you are struggling with anxiety and worry, limit your exposure to news and social media. Use trustworthy resources to stay informed on the current global situation. This will help you keep a realistic view of the crisis, which in turn will allow you to maintain a healthier mindset.
7. MANAGE NUTRITION FOR A HEALTHY BODY AND MIND
Nourishing your mind and body with high quality nutrients can significantly change the way we think and feel, and be a huge benefit for anybody struggling with mental health. Use the isolation period as an opportunity to cook more, learn a new recipe and eat regular meals high in vegetables, good quality protein and healthy fats.
Fuelling your body with the right nutrients will help you feel better, sleep well and have the energy that you need for optimal health and wellbeing.
8. SPEND TIME IN THE NATURE
According to current government guidelines, we are able to get out once a day for one form of exercise, while maintaining social distancing. Use this as an opportunity to spend some time in nature, such as going for a walk or a run in a nearby park.
