How to get through a second lockdown
We've been through one before, we can get through this one too.
Thursday starts the second lockdown and so I've compiled five great pieces of advice on how we can get through it, together.
Have you're own great piece of advice? Tell me in the comments below 👇
⏰Find a routine to keep you motivated
It is best to retain some level of normality as much as we possibly can. We can start by prioritising our sleep! One of the first things affected by stress, it has taken a turn for many of us during COVID. Aim for 6-8 hours per night to feel refreshed in the morning.
☕Take time out for you
Let's take time out for ourselves during the pandemic. Despite gym closures, exercise can be a great way for some 1:1 with ourselves. From a YouTube yoga sesh, walking around the block or on the stairs, it's a great way to get outdoors and help manage stress and boredom. But don't beat yourself up if you can't, or you're not as 'productive' as you feel you should be. Have a few minutes with a cup of tea instead.
💦Keep yourself and others safe
It is great so many of us have made so many small changes to our daily lives to help protect those around us. Let these long continue: Regular hand -washing, social distancing, avoiding touching your nose, mouth and face, and staying at home if you are at all unwell.
🇬🇧Follow Government Guidelines
Whilst it is less than ideal to be back in lockdown, these measures are put in place to try and slow the spread of the virus and flatten the curve. So be sure to stay at home where possible and follow government guidelines https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november
The best way we can get through this is together. I will remain online to help and support you, like you have to me. Remember to stay connected with close friends and families, whether its via traditional phone calls or (if you're not sick of it yet) zoom calls!
To say this pandemic has been a challenge is an understatement. If you need any help this time, feel free to contact us directly.
