Covid-19 is taking over our lives and while we all try to stay home and save lives it can be difficult to remain positive with all the negativity in the media or our thoughts.
Here are some 3 positive things you can do to give yourself the mental boost you need whilst being indoors and at home especially when you already are vulnerable or sick.
- Create a mood board or bucket list
Zone in on your hobbies, interest, travels and plans for your future. Put all your ideas on paper, in a scrap book, list in your phone or even type up on the computer. You can be as creative as you wish but ultimately focus on what you are going to do or go to or start once this is all over!
- Stay hydrated It is important to remember to stay topped up with fluids and we may forget as not moving around as much. Your body still needs to be kept from dehydration as this can lead to bad skin, IBS flare up to headaches and tiredness to name a few. The NHS and The European Food Safety Authority state, “Women should drink about 1.6 litres of fluid and men should drink about 2.0 litres of fluid per day”.
- Video call your loved ones regularly Make sure you are keeping in touch with your friends, family or even your groups such as your local club or hobby group. You can set up virtual meet-ups, virtual drink nights to give a bit of fun to your week and see some friendly faces. Do not be scared to use video software as once you have mastered how it works it really makes you feel as if you are with all those friendly faces in the room and makes you feel really happy and in-touch with the outside world.
