Getting Out Of A Lockdown Rut: Tips To Boost Wellbeing

There is no doubt that the lockdown has been tough for most of us. If you feel like you’re stuck in a rut, and you’re struggling to maintain a positive mindset, here are some tips to boost your wellbeing. 


Use your time constructively

Whether you’re working from home, you’ve been home-schooling, or you’ve been furloughed, you may have found that the pandemic has gifted you more hours in the day. Before the COVID-19 crisis, many of us complained about not having enough time. If you have got time, use it wisely. Spend quality time with friends and family, rediscover hobbies that have fallen by the wayside due to hectic work schedules and childcare commitments and do things that make you feel positive. Simple things like finding half an hour to do a virtual yoga class, going for a walk, painting your bedroom walls, or getting lost in a good book can make a world of difference. If you’re used to being busy, and you suddenly have free time, get into a routine and make plans. It’s always beneficial to wake up in the morning knowing that the day has something in store for you to look forward to.

Get out and about

There’s no place like home, but staying at home can get tedious. If you feel like you’ve been staring at the same four walls for as long as you can remember, start getting out and about more. You don’t have to go out to restaurants or hit the shops if you don’t feel comfortable doing so yet, but there are lots of things you can do safely. Make time for a walk in the open air each day, go for bike rides, take a picnic to the park or plan a weekend away or a road trip. If you fancy heading to the beach, or you love the idea of spending a few days at a national park, you could book a hotel, hire a log cabin or a static home or even look into buying a caravan. You can use the Internet to find a cheap caravan insurance policy and look forward to endless adventures. It has been difficult to spend months at home for many of us, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and if you abide by the guidelines, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the summer safely and start venturing further afield.

Start socialising 

One of the most difficult challenges lockdown has posed has been spending time away from family and friends. If you’re feeling low, or you’ve been lonely, reach out to loved ones. Whether you call a friend for a catch-up, or you pop round to a relative’s house, social interaction will improve your mood and help you feel more positive. It is possible to be sociable without putting your health at risk, and reconnecting with people who lift your spirits will put a smile on your face. Meet outside, take advantage of having a ‘bubble,’ keep a metre apart and make sure you wash your hands.
