Covid-19 Lockdown - Health & Wellbeing Tips

Looking after you during the lockdown

Your mental health and wellbeing during the Coronavirus Lock Down

Please make sure you take care of your loved ones during these unprecedented times but remember to take care of yourself too. Here are a few tips and methods to look after you, both physically and mentally.

  1. Remember to stay positive – Sometimes this is easier said than done but by employing a positive mind-set and always focusing on the silver-linings, you’ll find it easier to handle the lockdown. Write yourself positive messages and leave them in highly-visible places throughout the house. Some of our neighbours are even sticking them in their windows to wish positivity to everyone who passes by. 
  2. Make sure you get out of the house – The government have encouraged people to go outside for walks, runs, bike rides etc. once per day to ensure we’re still getting some exercise – but remember to keep in mind social distancing while doing this.
  3. Start a new in-home fitness regime – Your physical health has a direct correlation to your mental wellbeing. Exercising releases endorphins that help lift our moods, which is critical in times like now.
  4. Make sure you get some quiet ‘ME-TIME’ – You’ll probably find that there’s a lot going on at home, especially if you’re working from home, have to do the housework and look after the kids all day long. This is why it’s important to take a little time for you. Give yourself 30 minutes in the evening when the kids are watching a film, run yourself a hot bath, play some soothing music and switch yourself off for a moment. 
  5. Make sure you’re getting your 5-a-day minimum – Although supermarkets are experiencing a shortage of many goods, you should still be able to get plenty of fruit and veg (the fresher the better). Ensure you and your family are enjoying a variety of fruit and veg to make sure you’re all getting the nutrients you need. If you want some inspiration on eating healthy, even on a budget, you can find a lot of help online, such as these tips from the NHS https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/eat-well/20-tips-to-eat-well-for-less/
  6. Get some facetime with your loved ones – Even if you’re self-isolating, make sure you’re not isolating yourself from those your love. Take advantage of video calling and laptops with webcams – speak to your friends and family as much as you can. Even if you can’t visit them, you can still see them for a virtual cuppa.
  7. Give yourself a project in the home – Big or small, we all feel good when we complete a task or project. Create yourself a physical a to-do list for the day and tick things off as you complete them. If possible, set yourself a larger project, whether that’s painting the walls of your new nursery or take up knitting a new sweater, this will both keep your mind occupied and will give you an amazing boost of accomplishment when you complete it.
