Health & Well-being

During these uncertain times, you might find yourself feeling worried about the spread of coronavirus COVID-19 and its impact on you, your family and friends. It is normal to feel this way and it is important that we acknowledge them and to look after our physical and mental health.

You might find keeping up-to-date with new information helps you feel empowered, or you might find if overwhelming.  Over the coming days and weeks, it is important that you take proactive steps to maintain a routine, do things you enjoy and give yourself a sense of normality.

Routines  

Create a routine to adapt to your own circumstances. Work it out with your family and be realistic. It’s the routine that’s important, not so much what’s in it, although the more variety you can include in it the better. Also try and differentiate between a Mon to Fri routine, and something a little more informal and relaxed on the weekends.  It might help keep track of what day it is, which seems to be a problem for everyone at the moment!
