Day 5. Today’s top tips.
Take care of yourself. You need to be healthy mentally and physically if you’re looking after others. Self care is paramount. Have a quiet hour every day. Read, meditate, do yoga, have a relaxing bath or pamper. Being calm boosts your immune system.
A word about worry. Helpful worry keeps you safe – taking precautions like self distancing. Unhelpful worry can lead to overwhelm and panic. Repetitive thoughts that focus on worst case scenarios result in behaviour like panic buying, overthinking and searching for and consuming catastrophic information.
Get outside in the fresh air and exercise every day. Currently in the UK you can go for a walk, run or cycle once a day. Make sure you do it. Eat healthily and drink water.
Finally….Breathe! Slow, deep breathing with a longer outbreath will calm you down mentally and physically.
