Mental health and wellbeing during coronavirus

Get some fresh air, if you can
If government advice does not stop you from going outside, then try to get out for some fresh air.

Walking and running are great for your physical health and have proven benefits for your mental wellbeing. Our data shows that walking with a dog is a real mood booster – and studies prove that gardening can be very effective in tackling low mood, stress and anxiety.

And if you’ve worked up a bit of sweat doing 26 minutes of gardening, don’t forget to log your activity and let your buddy know!
Try a home workout
If you’re looking for some inspiration, there are loads of videos and workouts that you can follow online.

We have included some of our favourite videos from external websites and from our own mayathon videos in our gallery
Try relaxation & mindfulness

Practise relaxation and mindfulness to boost your mood. We have included some yoga & pilates videos in our video gallery.  Alternatively, you could follow an NHS yoga workout, try this mindful breathing exercise from Every Mind Matters, and read hints and tips on mindfulness from the NHS.
