Get ready for the summer with some spring cleaning
It’s important to keep moving and stay active.
Self-isolation or social distancing doesn’t mean sitting on the couch. That will just make you feel worse.
If you are not the “DIY type” and don’t need a new garden fence, then simply start some spring cleaning. After all, spring has officially started now.
This is a good time to have a clear-out and free up some space. It’s also a good workout and I guarantee that once you start, you won’t be able to stop.
It may even get some creative ideas going with what you can do with the space you create.
Plus, a spring clean is something you can do with the kids – get them involved and earning extra pocket money.
Final tip: switch off the news!
We all want to stay informed about the latest developments but there comes a point where it’s doing us no good.
With the 24-hour news cycle, we can start drowning in bad news and end up stricken with fear and anxiety.
This is no good for mental health and it will start affecting physical health unless we snap out of it and get more active.
You’ll find that by ticking tasks off your to-do list, the news fades into the background and, rather than being fearful of the future, you will feel a sense of achievement in the here and now!
Try switching off the news and enjoying life without the virus for a while.
Even better – turn off the news alerts on your phone while you’re about it.
You’ll notice the difference in your attitude and mentality if you do – and your family will thank you for it too.
Stay well, everybody!
