How To Deal With Covid-19

It’s the topic on everyone’s lips at the moment.


Its causing quite the debate amongst the general public all across the world. But in the wake of this recent outbreak, what on earth should we do?

Firstly, let me point out that I am not an expert on this matter. Not by a long stretch. But I feel that I am in a position to help give advice on how I feel we should deal with the matter, and how we can move forwards together.

Firstly, self-hygiene is critical, as it should be anyway. Washing your hands and keeping the items around you generally clean is one of the top priorities, not just now, but always. So, make sure you really double down on this.

The most important aspect of all of this is to be safe. Prioritise the health of you, your family, your loved ones and friends. Look after each other and make sure you are there for support. We will definitely need it at some point.

Now onto something I know a bit more about……Exercise. Exercise is a great way to improve health, and also your immune system. Even if your gym closes you should still prioritise exercise in general. There are thousands of home workouts you can do to keep your activity levels up. Don’t stress if you can’t get to the gym. Look at this as an opportunity to work on other aspects of your health and fitness. Practice yoga. Pilates. Work on your plank time. Use this as a chance to grow and improve your overall fitness and wellbeing.

Now for the biggest aspect of this, and that is to look after your mental health. Being isolated and out of routine gives us a lot of time to ponder and think, and this can be a challenging time for a lot of people. If you suffer with anxiety, stress or depression to name a few, seek support from others to help you through this tough time. We need support, and I’m sure people will be willing to give it. Don’t bottle your feelings and thoughts up. Talk to someone. Get it off your chest.

Most of all, we need to be sensible about this and keep calm. The last thing we need to do is let panic mode set in.

Wash your hands.

Keep things clean.

Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing.

Keep active.

Eat healthy, nutrient dense food.

Ask for support if needed.

Let’s get through this together.
