Mental wellbeing while staying at home
Taking care of your mind as well as your body is really important if you are staying at home because of COVID-19.
You may feel worried or anxious about your finances, your health or those close to you. Perhaps you feel bored, frustrated or lonely. It's important to remember that it's ok to feel this way and that everyone reacts differently.
Remember, for most of us, these feelings will pass. Staying at home may be difficult, but you're helping to protect yourself and others by doing it.
