Relaxation and self care. Right now this is SO important. So what can we all do to help ourselves stay mentally fit during this time?
Mental fitness is really closely linked to physical fitness so staying active and eating well is vital to keeping you well at this time. So make sure you are exercising for once a day in line with government guidance, and make sure that you’re eating a well balanced and nutritious diet. Plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and try to minimise the amount of processed foods you’re consuming. If you’re a smoker, now is an excellent time to break that habit and there are so many online resources to help you stop smoking. Finally try to minimise the amount of alcohol you’re consuming – you may have fallen in to a bit of a habit of consuming more alcohol since the lockdown but now that we’re getting used to things try to bring it back a little.
