Looking after your health 

Health is divided into three categories:

  • Mental Health: your mood, confidence and mindset
  • Social Health: your interaction and relationships with others
  • Physical Health: your body’s physical systems

In your normal lifestyle, you are likely to undertaken activities that help maintain or improve your health. However, the current situation may limit these. Despite the limitations, it is possible to find ways of adapting your leisure time. Here are some guidelines and suggestions.

 

Mental Health

Social Health

Physical Health

Stay in control - the current situation is beyond your control, but you CAN control what you do in your leisure time

Communicate – ensure you maintain communication with people. Ideally in person, but if not possible, use technology

Exercise – perform exercises that raise your heart rate and muscular activity, even if different to what you are used to (ideas below)

Stay optimistic – the current situation will end at some stage, and you will be ‘back to normal’!

Face-to-face? – where possible, make this contact visual, audio, or both (even via technology) rather than just by text

Nutrition - If you are doing less physical exercise than normal, limit your food intake accordingly

Keep occupied – stimulate your brain (ideas below) in order to keep your mood and spirits high

Deepen relationships – take this opportunity to improve your relationships with those you are home with

Sleep – maintain normal bed times and get at least 8 hours quality sleep. Avoid laying in

Change scenery – where possible, change your environment; go into different rooms or outside
