✰ During the unprecedented times we find ourselves in, it’s more important than ever that we take care of our physical health and emotional wellbeing.  We wanted to offer some suggestions on steps you and your family can take to build mental and physical resilience and navigate new challenges. ★
★Keep active 
Think of the restrictions on socialising as time gained to start a new fitness regime. Many top trainers, influencers and fitness studios have taken to YouTube and Instagram Live to offer free or donation-only exercise classes. Grab your laptops and get moving! @barrysuk @psyclelondon ★
★Eat smart
Sticking to a healthy diet can be a challenge at the best of times, but even more so in restrictive circumstances. It’s more important than ever to use up what you have lurking in your cupboards – preferably not the jar of capers that expired in 2012.
Find order in your day by establishing set mealtimes. Plan and prepare your meals and stick to it. Hide those unhealthy snacks that sing their siren song louder than ever when you’re stuck at home. The 80:20 rule is ideal as a general guide– try to be good 80% of the time! ★
★Get creative 
Unleash the inner aspiring artist! Creative journalling, sketching and painting are all great ways to boost mood and can significantly improve our mental health and wellbeing.
The online community of course has been as resourceful as ever and the two week #CreateToConnect challenge, which serves up a new creativity activity to try each day, will let you flex those creative muscles and make new connections with others taking part. All the challenges are suitable for children, grandparents and everyone in between – what’s not to love?
