Being isolated at home can be a difficult thing, especially when you are struggling with your mental health. It is important that you keep a routine going and keep yourself engaged with things to do during this period of isolation.
Below are a few suggestions to help keep yourself entertained and active.
Reading is a great way to pass some time and can help keep your brain active, you can find a lot of 100% free downloadable books online
If it is safe for you to do so, why not spend a little time in your garden? This is a great way to get a bit of exercise and fresh air. As the saying goes, nature is a great healer. If the weather is nice, maybe even sit outside with a book and a cuppa.
Go on a cleaning spree
Cleaning isn’t something that most people enjoy but it is a great way to get a bit of exercise and to burn off some of that built up energy. Maybe you have that one room that needs clearing out, or you have a load of junk in your garage or loft that you have been meaning to sort through but have been putting it off. Now is a better time than ever to get it done!
Listen to some music
Everyone likes listening to music, whether you like a bit of Lady gaga or Beethoven. Get your groove on and turn the music up. Maybe even have a little dance around the house whilst you do some cleaning. Music is great for lifting your mood and will give you that uplift in mood to help you feel better about the day ahead.
How about a bit of exercise using some household items?
Exercise, although not everyone’s cup of tea is a great mood booster which also releases those feel-good chemicals, endorphins, in our brains. Making us feel happy and ironically energised, considering you just spent time wearing yourself out a bit.
Colouring and puzzles
Another great way to stimulate the mind and keep yourself engaged is to do some colouring-in or do some puzzles.
You can do buy Xanax online, or if you have access to a printer you can print some off to do at home by yourself or with your family.
