Top Tips for Isolation

27 April 2020

During these uncertain times, looking after your physical and mental wellbeing has never been more important. Here are some tips to help you stay healthy in body and mind during self-isolation.

Ask for Support
Support is always available, even if you just need a chat – we are here.

Avoid Information Overload
While it’s good to be informed, it can feel overwhelming. Try to go back to the traditional style of watching the 6’o clock news, rather than engaging with the 24-hour news cycle.

Keep Active
Exercise is so important for your mental health. Make time for a quick jog, or even just a walk.

Stay Social
Whether it’s through WhatsApp or FaceTime, keeping in contact is hugely important. Stay in regular contact with your friends, and those you feel could be vulnerable at this time.

Eat Well
In times of high stress, comfort eating should be avoided. Fresh food and vegetables will keep you feeling healthy in body and mind.

Be Occupied
Now is a great time to dedicate to your hobbies, or even to explore new ones.

Be Positive
Try to look for the positives in the situation. e.g. having extra ‘me’ time, the opportunity to try out a new hobby or learn a new skill.

Maintain a Routine
Try and create a routine that keeps you active and busy during this uncertain time. Get dressed, make yourself a nice breakfast and plan out your day.

Practice Mindfulness
Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing
