Managing feelings and anxiety at home

Please see below some advice to help manage feelings and anxiety at home:

 

  • Be consistent with the waking and bedtime routines
  • Try to stick to a timetable for the morning
  • Afternoon for fun and physical activities and go outdoors if it safe to do so
  • Contact with friends and family by Facetime and writing letters (postage services are continuing at the moment!)
  • Limit news/fake news and too much social media!
  • Provide a break time/lunch time routine
  • Make a family ‘I am bored’ Jar – fill it with ideas to choose from when you are bored – could be a household chore, a game, 20 jumping jacks etc loads of ideas on Pinterest!
  • Make a family ‘to do’ jar – fill with the things that you have missed so you can make sure you can do in the future – hug a Grandparent, go to the cinema, dinner at Nandos, go swimming etc
