COVID-19 has hit Australian businesses hard but if you’re still holding onto your job, you’re definitely one of the lucky ones and we’re so happy for you! We know these are difficult times and it’s definitely a sigh of relief knowing you still have money coming in. However, that doesn’t mean you don’t feel like the stress and effects of COVID-19 of the economy. If anything, you might feel more emphasis placed on performing well at work to ensure your job is secure! 

During this time, you might find yourself working longer hours and maybe even sleeping less but it is so important that you continue to take care of your mental and physical health! Check out the post below for some tips!

Taking care of yourself: Some wellness tips

If you’re struggling to cope during lockdowns, we’ve compiled a list of things you can try to do that may help!

1. Keep a daily routine
Plan your daily cadence. Having a ‘structured’ day can give you a sense of purpose and meaning.

2. Exercise regularly 
We all know exercise promotes the release of endorphins and serotonin aka the feel good chemicals in the brain. So, it’s important that you make exercise a part of your daily routine, whether it’s a walk around the block or a set of star jumps.

3. Take up a new hobby!
Hobbies are a great source of enjoyment and stress relief. New hobbies challenge you to develop new skills, boost your self-esteem and create new bonds in your social life!

4. Practice mindfulness daily
You can reset your mind at any time of the day and it doesn’t have to take long! You can try by starting the day with 10 deep breaths, keeping a gratitude diary and checking in with yourself without judgement. It’s okay not to be okay.

5. Limit your alcohol intake
Turning to alcohol more often to relive stress can be a sign of unhealthy coping mechanism. Try replacing this action with a more positive coping mechanism such as going for a walk, doing 20 pushups, watching a Netflix show or calling a friend for a quick chat!

6. Get a good night’s sleep
Good sleep is crucial to your mental and physical wellbeing. To ensure you’re getting a good night’s sleep, try exercising, limit your caffeine intake, turn on night shift mode on your phone to reduce blue light before bedtime, avoid napping and practice mindful breathing before bedtime to slow your heart rate.

7. Plan your budget
Financial strain is one of the biggest causes of anxiety and for many of us, the pandemic has severely affected our financial position and goals. A tip for you is to draw up a monthly budget and plan your spending and saving. Alternatively, speak to your bank if you’re experiencing financial hardship.

8. Eat well-balanced meals
Nutrition plays a big part in how we feel both mentally and physically. A recent study found that a Mediterranean-style diet (high in vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, beans, cereals, grains, fish and unsaturated fats such as olive and fish oil) led to a reduction in depression among participants.

9. Limit negative news intake
Although it’s important to stay information, make sure you are getting your information from official government sites and then switch off. This will help you avoid panic and remain level-headed.

10. Utilise your support network
This can include your family, friends or colleagues. Positive daily interaction will lift your mood and give you a sense of connection.

11. Seek professional support early
Many of us will feel anxiety, depression and overwhelm at some stage during this time. If these feelings are persistent and you’re finding it difficult to cope, please don’t wait to reach out for help. Speak to someone in your support network or speak to your GP. You don’t have to be in a bad shape before speaking to your doctor!
