As we are all experiencing these uncertain times; feelings of being trapped in isolation, along with constant news updates, are likely to promote anxiety and stress. It’s important that we can all remain positive and look after our mental health. Here are a few tips on how to cope with self-isolation… 

Have a digital detox.

With COVID-19 on every channel around the world, it’s hard to get away from all the panic. Rest your sanity and give yourself a well-earned break from the media. We suggest taking a long bubble bath, read a new book and have some 𝐘𝐎𝐔 time.

Facetime your loved ones.

Even though you may not live with the majority of your family, make sure to have regular contact with them through calls and facetime chats. This is the perfect way to catch up with your gran, see your dog’s new hair cut or play a prank on your friends.

Home workouts.

Who needs a gym when we live in a world with Joe Wicks. With his 10-minute home workouts, you’ll have that summer body before you know it. We suggest keeping yourself motivated by trying to stay in a routine, repeat this daily to maximise your efforts.

Host a party.

And obviously, we don’t mean at your house. If you are lucky enough to have a balcony, host a DJ set with all your neighbours. In Italy last week whilst under lockdown, songs broke out from rooftops, balconies and windows. Who said self-isolation can’t be fun, ey?
