You are caring for others at work, and at home, during this pandemic crisis, therefore it makes good sense that you look after your physical and mental health.
We are producing weekly Wellbeing Guides for our #frontlineheroes around the country – supporting our team while they care for and support our residents and their families.
You are not alone. Others are feeling similar to you. People are different in how they interpret life events; therefore, each of us is unique in how sensitive we are. Be kind to yourself in how you are feeling.
You can do something (take action) to indirectly alter what you are experiencing:
– Take time out for yourself, go for a walk or run
– Do some gardening of any kind
– Read a good book that you enjoy
– Talk to someone about what you are feeling
– Do nothing if this helps you
– Lessen the amount of news you are listening to
– Establish a healthy sleep pattern
– Stay in touch with loved ones using video calls, on whatsapp or facetime
– Lessen the amount of social media that you are engaging in that might be increasing feelings, anxiety etc.
Think about what actions you have taken, that have helped you in the past. Whatever helped, as long as it is a healthy action, do more of it.
