Tips for getting through
"Busy yourself with something creative if you can. Perhaps write lovely letters to family and friends, which we just don’t do these days - I’m on my tenth one!"
"The Rock Choir, for everyone - not just members - daily at 3pm live (accessible later) teaches Feel-Good Songs on their main Facebook page."
"CovidMutualAid.org is a source of local mutual support groups, e.g. shopping for vulnerable people."
"I'm enjoying the chance to prepare great food at home. Yes I still have to go to the shops to collect ingredients (alternatively you can get them delivered of course), but once I've got them I'm enjoying the chance to cook great homemade food. I find it a creative and mindful process, I enjoy the sense of achievement, and love the results! You don't need to be a chef, just follow a recipe you like the look of. If you don't have many cookery books, there are loads of great recipes online."
"When you wake up and get out of bed the very first thing you should do is make your bed. It may sound daft but making your bed sets the tone for the day and by starting the day being productive and positive will help how you feel more positive. No matter what you do for the rest of the day, you've done one productive thing. You could have a really bad day but when you look at your bed you know you did that, you made it. Yes it does sound silly but small steps are the most important when you're low."
