Mary Magalotti of Life Resolutions acknowledges that this is a difficult time for many Victorians – and she knows that those with existing mental health conditions may be hit the hardest. However, Mary also knows there are some simple things you can do to stay well during this lockdown:
Lockdown Mental Health Advice from Mary Magalotti
Keep in routine: While the world is topsy-turvy, it’s more important than ever to maintain a healthy routine. Try to get up at the same time each day, and eat regular, nutritious meals. Ensuring you retain a sense of normality is important for your mental health.
Switch off: If the constant news updates and press conferences bearing bad news bring you down, give yourself permission to switch off. It’s also important to ensure you’re getting reliable information – don’t rely on rumours as it may cause more stress and anxiety.
Stay connected: Although we may not be able to catch up for coffee dates right now, the power of technology means you can still stay in touch with loved ones. Organise a phone call with friends or enjoy a Zoom trivia night with family.
