Wellbeing Tip of the Week
The coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is affecting all our lives. Many of us are struggling with how it's affecting ourselves and our loved ones. Those of us already living with mental health problems are facing extra challenges too.
However, there are some simple things that you can do to look after your mental health, either by yourself or with other people. Here is our well-being mentor’s tip of the week for looking after yourself:
Take time to chill out and relax - People find different things help them relax – it could be having a bath, watching a funny film, drawing, reading, listening to music, deep breathing or going for a walk. Try different things and see what works for you.
Relaxation reduces stress and the symptoms of mental health conditions. So find a relaxation technique that works for you and make it part of your daily routine, even if it’s just for 5 or 10 minutes a day.
