Making the Most of Lockdown
Let's focus on the things we can control!
How are you feeling?
Being in lockdown has caused a major change to our normal lives and can have us feeling all sorts of different things - often all within the same day!
Feeling a little out of sorts is completely normal, we have to be kind to ourselves as we navigate this new territory.
Rather than worry about all the things we can’t control, let’s focus on the things we can!
We would like to share some things that help us provide structure, motivation, gratitude and peace to our lockdown days to help make them a bit easier!
It is so important to get into some sort of routine! This helps to provide structure to your day, keep you moving and help you feel accomplished. This can be done through making lists, laying out a plan for the day and being consistent with your time.
Create Healthy Habits
Focus on the positive, like creating healthy habits! This includes healthy eating, movement throughout the day, focusing on proper hydration and on your mental and physical wellbeing! For example, eating until you are satisfied, drinking water when you are thirsty and getting up and going for a walk!
During hectic and uncertain times it is important to take care of your mental health. Meditation can help with this by allowing us to recenter, reflect and refocus. Meditation is an exercise which will help reduce stress, improve focus and attention, improve sleep and gain a new, calmer perspective on your everyday life.
