Self-isolating / living alone

   

Taking care of your mind as well as your body is really important if you need to stay at home or you are shielding because of coronavirus.

Below are some ways to look after your wellbeing. You can also visit the 5 ways to wellbeing page for further wellbeing tips.

How you may feel

You may feel bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also be low, worried or anxious, or concerned about your finances, your health or those close to you.

It is important to remember that it is ok to feel this way and that everyone reacts differently.

Remember, for most of us, these feelings will pass. Staying at home may be difficult, but you are helping to protect yourself and others by doing it. This can easily have an effect on our mental wellbeing.
