We're no experts, but if you're struggling today - this might help. 

Ways to protect your mental health and wellbeing: 

1. Take a break from social media: It's easier said than done with everything going on at the moment, but try to take some 'quiet' time out for short periods of time throughout your day.

2. Exercise the body to exercise the mind: Release those feel good chemicals with a hardcore home workout or get into a nice calm space and practice your yoga moves and stretches. Both proven to boost your overall health.

3. Try to stick to your usual routine: Staying within your usual routine will ensure that you feel less tired, more refreshed, and you will find it easier to concentrate throughout the day. Replace your morning commute with something you don't normally get chance to do -like some early morning meditation or blitz the kitchen!

4. Physical distancing, not social distancing: t's essential to stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues throughout this difficult time - not only through popular social platforms, but through FaceTime and old fashioned calls too! Hearing someones voice is a lot more comforting than reading it. So, grab your morning coffee and give a friendly face a call.

5. A positive thought a day: Now more than ever, it's the little things in life that keep us going. Use a note book to write down something positive about each day. Or create a group chat with friends, family or colleagues for the sole purpose of sharing these. It can be little things like your spring bulbs are finally sprouting or maybe your favourite restaurant is now delivering - whatever it is, it counts because it's yours.

Stay safe & look after yourself.
