Looking after ourselves physically and mentally

As we adjust again to staying at home more, and minimising our contacts outside of the home, it’s important that we remember to take care of our minds as well as our bodies.

It’s perfectly normal to feel anxious or worried right now, whether that’s about our own health or that of family members or friends.  If you live alone, you may be feeling an even greater sense of isolation or loneliness.

Staying at home is difficult, but you are helping to protect yourself and others by doing so.

Every Mind Matters has some helpful information online to support us through this time, whether that’s regarding concerns you may have about your finances, or ensuring that you or others have the supplies or support you need, or staying connected with others.

Take a moment to look at the advice it provides.  We are all in this together, and it’s important that we take time to look after ourselves mentally, as well as physically.
