Feeling a bit unsettled by Covid-19 and the effect it’s having on your life? Here’s a few practical ways to stay positive in this time of uncertainty.
Pick up a new hobby:
If you’ve suddenly got lots of time on your hands and find yourself in a bit of a void, quit the endless scrolling on your phone and take up a new hobby. You could try card making, painting, baking, gardening - the possibilities are endless! Spending time enjoying a hobby is a great way to keep your hands active and mind busy. When the team at OxyArmour are enjoying our hobbies, we don’t have time to worry so much about the uncertainty of Covid.
Clean your living space:
Living in a cluttered environment can make us feel claustrophobic and weighed down even at the best of times - let alone when we’re dealing with the added stresses of Covid. Don’t wait until spring, give your home a deep clean and tackle those chores you would put off under normal circumstances. De-cluttering your living space definitely gives you a sense of accomplishment! And the added piece of mind that your home is hygienic and clean. Both positives in OxyArmour’s eyes.
It can be easy to slump yourself in front of the TV all day, but exercise is really one of the keys to keeping positive during this unsettling time of Covid. If you can, try to get outside once a day in the fresh air, even if it’s just for a quick walk around the block. Exercise helps to boost energy levels and release endorphins, which will in turn help to keep your mind and body happy.
Keep yourself protected:
There are a lot of things we can’t control out in the world, but we can control how we protect ourselves in a Covid environment. Keep yourself sanitised, remember to socially distance and wear your OxyArmour mask when you’re out and about. Knowing you’re protected and prepared is a great way to keep your mind at ease.
