The Things You Can Do At Home To Stay Healthy

Love Your Home Stay Healthy

You may feel a slight air of disappointment now that lockdown has been extended, but it’s all for the good of the country and will hopefully see things return to normal sooner, rather than later. 

While in isolation, for your well-being, it’s really important that you keep as healthy as you can, physically and mentally. 

If your mind and body are in fine fettle, it’ll make the situation a bit easier for you, and there are numerous things you can be doing in your safe space to aid them both.

Keep to a schedule but always make time to talk

It’s important to fill your days as best you can and have a regular routine, without it being too pressurised or unnecessarily tough. 

Establish a few goals for each day that you can complete either alone or with the help of others in the house, such as emptying your cupboards of any out-of-date food or washing your windows. Little achievements they may be, but you’ll feel good for doing them.

Lockdown getting you down? It helps to talk and there’s all sorts of technology for you to be able to get in contact with the people you can’t see. Zoom is just one of many video-call services great for online group chats.

Tip One

Spend more time in the garden

Staying within four walls for the majority of the time won’t do you any good. The Government has said you can go out for exercise once a day, so take advantage of that, and also, use your garden. 

Get out a comfy garden chair or sun lounger so you can soak in some sunshine and have an intake of Vitamin D, essential for keeping bones, teeth and muscles healthy. 

When the weather is kind, every breakfast, lunch and dinner you have can be enjoyed outdoors, just like you would do when you’re abroad on holiday – who needs to go away?

Tip Two

Try your hand at baking

Just like when the Great British Bake Off first came on screens, Britain has gone baking-mad again, a fun activity that’s actually immensely helpful for your mental health and great for easing stress. 

Who’s the ‘Star Baker’ in your household? Find out by having a family Bake Off competition and seeing who can cook up the finest showstopper. You will be left with the nicest smelling home in the neighbourhood and maybe a budding Paul Hollywood. 

Flour is absent from many supermarket shelves right now because of the surge in home baking, but there are plenty of flourless bakes you can do without it. Do fudge cookies or peanut butter muffins tantalise your tastebuds? How could they not!

Tip three
