Sleep – Healthy adults should get an average of seven to nine hours of sleep per night, sleep can have a huge impact on how we feel both physically and emotionally. So try to have a fairly a healthy amount of sleep without oversleeping as this can make us feel worse!
Routine – Even though you may not have to get up for work it is still important to have a routine to your day. Divide your day into work, meals, exercise and any hobbies you may have so there is still some structure to your day.
Exercise – it is well known that exercise releases feel-good hormones. If running or walking outside isn’t for you then have a look at home workout videos or yoga guides on youtube. You can find plenty of exercise videos to watch suitable for all abilities.
Eat well – cook healthy and balanced meals, try to still eat fresh fruit and veg, have a look to see if there’s a local veg box company in your area that can deliver fresh fruit, vegetables and salad to your doorstep.
Limit social media – replace social media time with reading books and limit your screen time. Even if it’s just making sure you set a specific time before bed where you unwind with a book instead of scrolling through social media.
Indulge in a long bath or shower and enjoy a face mask, I always apply a facemask when I have a headache as it helps soothe the tension.
Spend time doing things you enjoy and maybe discover a new hobby. I’m using my time to start growing fruit and veg, many online companies are still delivering products so you could have a go at knitting, painting or growing herbs.
Keep in contact with friends and family – even though you can’t see them in person you can still facetime or call friends and family to check in on them and make sure they are ok.
