Keep a routine
“When you’re poorly, it can be difficult to maintain a routine,” Humber says. “Stick to your usual routine where possible, as this may reduce your worries. If you feel up to it, head outside for a short amount of time during the day if you’re used to being outdoors, and make sure you’re still prioritising self-care. Having a routine can be helpful in times of unpredictability, uncertainty, and stress.”
Stay hydrated and replenished
“Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated are some of the best things you can do to improve your physical health, but they also have benefits for your mental health,” Humber explains.
“Make sure you get as much sleep as you need. If you’re having difficulty sleeping, try to give yourself a relaxing bedtime routine and avoid digital devices an hour before bed, as they can impact our sleep.”
