Things you can do if you’re physically distancing
As we all come to grips with physical distancing and self-isolation, we know that anxiety levels may be running high for some of us.
It’s in times like these that we all come to truly value the power of connection with others.
Luckily, technology has allowed us to stay in touch with our loved ones, our work colleagues, and the rest of the world, reminding us that we’re not alone.
This week we’re launching #athomewiththeherd to find out how you are looking after your mental health, and staying positive and motivated at home.
Some people are using this time as an opportunity to practice some old skills, learn something new, or simply maintain some normality, in some extraordinarily innovative ways.
Take time for self-care and meditation
Have a virtual coffee break to stay in touch with friends
Read all the books
Start a journal
Learn an instrument
Try some indoor photography
Try a new recipe (or learn to cook)
Learn a new language
Don’t forget to walk your dog
…with your dog
…with your cat
Have a dance
Make your own fun
