We had all hoped that we were on the path to conquering COVID-19 when the restrictions were lifted the first time around. Unfortunately, the nation was shocked into a second lockdown that left everyone wondering how to remain positive.
We’ve all had to shift our perspective and find ways to remain productive. These easy tips for going back into lockdown will set you off on the right path.
Routine is key
Maintaining a healthy mental and physical state is essential during lockdown. A routine will help make sure that the days don’t blur into one and that you stay productive. Small habits like waking up at a certain time, getting dressed and separating your work station from your relaxing area can make a world of difference.
Avoid information overload
In the middle of a global pandemic, there’s a lot of information, opinions and speculation being shared. It’s easy to get sucked into the habit of scrolling without being aware of what you’re reading. Make sure that you monitor how much information you consume, and the sources of your reading, and take time out to relax from the doom and gloom of the news.
A healthy body is important to keep the virus at bay and to maintain your sanity. While many activities are off limits with the new restrictions, outdoor recreation is still encouraged. The current regulations say that we are allowed to meet with one person outside of our household for a jog or stroll in the park. Otherwise, there are plenty of home workouts to help get your blood pumping. Take a look at this blog post for more tips on staying fit at home.
Maintain a healthy diet
A healthy diet will keep your body strong and your immunity performing well. Instead of ordering takeouts, you can cook a well-balanced meal. Just make sure that you don’t panic buy when doing your groceries.
Follow government guidelines
There are certain restrictions and regulations that have been put in place for our wellbeing.. If we want to get through this lockdown successfully, then we need to abide by these rules. Make sure that you always wear a mask, sanitise your hands and maintain social distancing.
Support local businesses
Pubs, restaurants, entertainment venues and non-essential shops are just a few businesses that have taken a knock during the lockdown. Many of these businesses are using innovative approaches to keep their doors open. Keep an eye open for opportunities to support these businesses and help them survive lockdown.
Make space in the home
Lockdown means a lot more time being spent at home. This can quickly become claustrophobic and frustrating, especially when you have to work, live and teach your children under the same roof. Clearing a bit of space to use as an office or home classroom can make the next month a lot less stressful. These items can be stored in off-site storage where they are safe and secure.
