How to stay mentally strong during the lockdown:
- Working on a big project? Break it into chunks and set a deadline for each one.
- Stay in touch with friends, colleagues, family and acquaintances. Video chats are best but sometimes a text is okay.
- Exercise. Nothing hectic if you’re not fully fit. Walking, stretching and deep breathing help to relieve stress.
- Force yourself to take a break every hour. Just five minutes, long enough to make coffee and catch up with the news.
- Set a pattern for your day. Start work at your normal time, take your lunch break and, if there’s someone you used to meet for a regular chat around the water cooler, call them.
- Focus. Don’t screen suck or get pulled into pointless banter on social media.
