Mind Your Mind

During times of stress it becomes even more important to mind both our mental and physical health.

We are heading into unchartered waters as a community with the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus and it may feel pretty scary.

The majority of people’s lives (mine included) will be affected in some way by Covid-19.

We all react differently to stress and for most of us this pandemic will cause worry at the very least.

For some us however it may cause overwhelming emotions, anxiety and really affect our ability to live our day to day lives.

So what can we do to help ourselves?

Firstly let’s try our best to only process the real fact’s.

That means using trustworthy and reliable sources for our own news updates.

We’ve probably all heard rumours at this stage and they might be unnecessarily adding to the negativity.

If we are feeling overwhelmed or distressed, I suggest limiting the amount of time spent mindlessly scrolling on social media and looking for news updates (or cutting it out completely).

There are lots of things going on outside of our control right now so let's focus on "controlling the controllables"

It is more important now than ever to try to keep your healthy routines and let’s be honest we all thrive on a bit of structure.
