Maintaining Mental Health. What Can You Do?
What a strange and rather surreal time we are all living in. COVID 19 is affecting each and every one of us in some way or another. We will all be dealing with it, physically and emotionally, very differently.
- Working with FVE, FECAVA have produced the attached ten wellbeing tips from Dr. Rosie Alistair, Vetlife, UK, which we hope will help.
- To help with self-care, The Webinar Vet, to support the veterinary community at this time has set up all their health and wellbeing content for free during April. https://www.thewebinarvet.com/pages/free-access-wellbeing-content/
- To help with exercise, try VetYogi’s website www.vetyogi.com and her YouTube channel.
- To help with focusing, try to understand what you can control and what is out of your direct control. It is important to try and release what you can’t control or change.
Many people are worried as they don’t like being out of control and so much of what is happening is out with our control…this leads to an increased level of anxiety. Anxiety comes from the unknown and waiting for something to happen – coronavirus is that magnified. So take some time to identify what you can control and what is totally out with your control. Have a look at our infographics.
