Self-Isolation Tips!

The Corona Virus has seen several countries across the world put into lockdown, with residents in quarantine to slow and stop the spread of the virus. You can find the current UK government guidelines here.

Everyone is unique, therefore self-isolation presents varying challenges (or even benefits!) to different people. Below are some basic guidelines that can help us all make the best fo the situation.

 

        • Exercise Regularly

Get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity. NHS guidelines recommend taking part in physical activity daily. Exercise classes are available online for free, with no need to leave home to do them.

 

        • Keep a routine

Get dressed, have breakfast and approach your working day as you would if you were going to the office. Take an intentional lunch break and start/finish at your regular times to avoid home & work-life merging into one.

 

        • Eat healthy food

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is essential to maintaining your physical and mental health. Make sure you are consuming at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day. Fruit & vegetables that are fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juiced all count!
