Whatever You’re Feeling Right Now, it’s OK (part 4)

The joy of wellbeing - Naturally

Some further ways to support yourself at this time are:

  • make sure you keep hydrated – our body uses more water in times of stress
  • uncertainty is exhausting so make sure you get plenty of good quality rest
  • don’t put any expectations on yourself – take one day at a time, or even one hour at a time
  • take time to tune in to how you’re feeling.  Listen to your body and to what it needs
  • journal
  • reach out to connect with others.  They say that ‘a trouble shared is a trouble halved’, and in these times of physical distancing it’s good to be reminded that we’re not alone in feeling anxious, lonely, frustrated, lost or whatever.
  • create some structure for your day.  With many of us working from home and possibly home-schooling as well, our normal routines have been thrown up in the air.  Creating a new structure helps to give us a sense of stability and control again
  • practice mindfulness, or Beingfulness, that is, to become conscious of the whole of your being – Body, Mind & Spirit – without judging or labelling and just ‘let be’
