Now, more than ever, we’re all craving a little time out. When options for entertainment are limited, there’s no better way to reconnect with yourself than to focus on yourself and your own well-being.
There’s plenty of advice around on how to use tried-and-tested coping mechanisms, and they work. Eat as healthily as you can, but don’t deny yourself the occasional treat. Avoid too much caffeine and alcohol. Exercise for at least 20 minutes a day. Spend some time in nature – just not with crowds of people. Set yourself small, achievable goals so you feel you have accomplished something every day. Get enough sleep. Reach out to friends and family to find out how they are feeling. Have a laugh – or at least a smile.
