Lots of us are being asked to stay at home or keep our distance right now. This can feel scary, but there are simple ways to manage stress and feel less anxious.
Stress, boredom and changes to your usual routine can all affect how hungry you feel, and what you choose to eat.
Regular contact with friends and family makes us feel connected and cared for.
Exercise is brilliant at reducing stress and boosting your mood. Try and build some physical activity into your new daily routine.
Sunshine, fresh air and green spaces are great for wellbeing: try to bring them into your life as much as you can.
There are lots of things we have to do differently right now, and that can feel unsettling. Give yourself permission to take things slowly and make time for yourself.
It’s not easy to stop worrying, especially if you have concerns about money, health, jobs or schooling. Just do what you can to reduce the impact of unnecessary stress.
