The recent government advice regarding

the outbreak of the Coronavirus (Covid19) means

that the majority of us will either

be in social isolation or socially distancing

ourselves from public places. Isolation of

any kind can be extremely frustrating and

negatively impact our mental health as

well as our physical health.

The goal of this post is to support

those of us who are currently well and

in isolation or social distancing to remain

feeling positive and healthy.

We've provided our top tips for social

distancing or isolation, and more detailed

advice around emotional eating, exercising

at home, and managing anxiety. We've

also included recipes using mostly nonperishable ingredients.

although this situation is unpredictable,

our mental wellbeing may benefit from

focussing on any possible silver linings

of spending more time at home. Perhaps

that's enjoying making home-cooked

meals each day, reading books we have

wanted to for a while, trying out some

new recipes, or getting into the habit of

exercising at home.
