With no lifting of the lockdown in sight quite yet, we will continue to be restricted to our homes and some householders find it an especially difficult situation.
If it is starting to take its toll on your mind and body, please do all you can to hang on in there – you have it in you to get through this!
Keeping that mind and body healthy in your safe space will make it easier and there are different things you can do to look after your wellbeing.
Allow yourself some breathing space
While we don’t advocate you doing nothing, it is important that you make time for relaxing and taking it easy so that there is no undue pressure placed upon you.
Try to fill your days though with a few tasks, whether that’s cleaning the house from top to bottom or adding creosote to a fence outside. Completing them will make you feel good.
Once your daily to-do list is done, it’s time to have a chat. Use Zoom, Skype or Google Hangouts to catch-up with people you’re not able to see at the moment, which will make you feel better.
Make the most of your garden
It’s no good for you if you just stay inside for the vast majority of time. You need some fresh air and Vitamin D on occasion, which you can get from taking your permitted exercise and your garden.
One silver living is that the weather has been great during lockdown, so have your breakfasts, lunches and dinners in the sunshine out on the patio or decking.
The kids should come and join you. Let them build their dens in the garden where they can watch their tablets and phones and generally play to ensure they stay entertained and aren’t stuck indoors.
Take up baking
A lot of amateur bakers will tell you that they find baking cakes and other baked goods therapeutic and great for their mental wellness. It can also relieve stress.
You don’t need to be up to Mary Berry standard to cook up a carrot cake or some cupcakes. Just follow a recipe carefully and you shouldn’t end up with a soggy bottom.
When it goes well, you will get a kick out of it. When it goes badly, well, at least it will give you a bit of a laugh. Who knows. You might just be a Master Baker.
