Stay safe and keep well.

Wellbeing Resources

Many people are discovering that the routines of day-to-day life aren’t the only things to be affected by lockdown.  Many people are noticing interrupted and altered sleep patterns, jumbled thought processes and increased levels of stress and anxiety. While some are reveling in the opportunity to step away from their usual stressful or disordered routines and to take time for themselves.

However you are dealing with the current restrictions, the Corinthian Team have created a Wellbeing Resource full of useful links, podcasts and apps to help.

EXERCISE

One of the main ways you can improve both your thought processes and sleep quality is to incorporate exercise into your daily routine. Venturing outside provides a change of scenery, fresh area and a break from your new work or family scenario. You could always incorporate this with listening to one of the many wellness and mindfulness podcasts available.

If you cant get outside there are various indoor workouts requiring minimal space and equipment – like the daily workout from the body coach – Joe Wicks.

MINDFULNESS

If you had previously filed ‘mindfulness’ away under the ‘not relevant to me’ part of your brain, it’s possible that the current situation has made you consider your mental health more than normal.

A mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique”

Mindfulness refers to anything that can help to calm your mind and bring your thoughts to the present – lifting your mood and focusing your mind in a calmer, more ordered state; Not just restricted to meditating or perfecting deep-breathing, our guide details some of the many mental health resources available – including those from MIND and Headspace.

WORK 

Creating a new, healthy, working practice to navigate these times shouldn’t be disregarded. Neither should the importance of a well set-up working area

SOCIAL

As sociable creatures the lack of human contact shouldn’t be underestimated – and work emails and calls don’t count! Make sure to make time to stay in touch with friends and family, video calling apps like Houseparty and Zoom have made this easier than ever.

 

 

As we head into week 4 of lockdown, we see the re-start of home schooling following the Easter break.  If like many of us you are struggling with the balancing act that is working from home whilst trying to home school children of different ages, we thought this guide may be useful for you and your employees.

The website http://www.twinkl.co.uk is also pretty useful, together with the BBC Bitesize programmes which are split across all age groups.

Good luck, and stay safe!
