Supporting you during COVID-19
Practical ways to look after yourself during isolation
- Find a support person. Contact a family member or friend and ask them to call you twice a day so they know you are ok.
- Discuss the essentials you need with your support person (i.e medication, how will you get food delivered).
- Open blinds or curtains and let sunlight into your room.
- If you are able, get some fresh air – open a window or go onto a balcony.
- If you are well, try some regular daily exercise – look for some online yoga classes or fitness regimes or even some meditation sessions
- Rather than just streaming, try reading a book!
- Interact daily with family and friends via video
- If you are concerned, book a telehealth appointment to discuss your symptoms with your GP
Here are some free mobile apps to help with your wellbeing.
