Looking After Your Mental Health During Lockdown

As the coronavirus  lockdown continues, many of you are concerned about how you are looking after your mental health during lockdown. Our health experts suggest various ways for you to stay healthy during this time in this article!

Looking After Your Mental Health While You Stay at Home

Big changes in life such as lock down can put a strain on your mental health, particularly if you are locked down alone. Here are our top tips to look after your mental health during lockdown:

  • Ensure you keep a routine, even if you aren’t currently working (e.g. make sure you wake up at the same time every day and don’t stay up too late)
  • Stay in contact with your loved ones, and also be sure to check in on others and their mental health
  • Try to view this as a positive time in life, it’s highly unlikely that we will ever have as much ‘free’ time again. Why not focus on spending time/calling loved ones, learning a new skill or even watching some of your guilty pleasure films?
  • Take time to relax (yoga, meditation and long baths are good for this!)
  • Reduce your screen time, it’s so easy to spend hours scrolling on your phone but this is not good for your mental health. Screen time settings in smart phones send an alert when you have reached the time limit that you can set yourself for each app

Asking for Help When Needed

It is vital that you recognise when you are not feeling your best mentally, that there are people that want to listen and help you. If you do begin to feel down, contact family members or loved ones to tell them how you are feeling, sometimes just getting your feelings off of your chest can help you to feel better.

If you would prefer not to speak to your family members and loved ones about your mental state, there are hundreds of free professional mental health services and charities that can help, such as the Samaritans.
