My lockdown lows

A collection of items used to relax; incense, a box of well-being oil, a plant, some knitting needles and thread and a PlayStation controller.Knitting, playing video games and tending to my plants are some of the distractions I have at home.

As the country has shut down because of Covid-19, it seems I have as well.

It’s around 4am when I decide to go to sleep, as after all, it’s not like I have anywhere to be tomorrow.

Sleeping in has always been a bad habit of mine, but I never used to do it until noon.

My eating habits have also changed, as I’m either snacking all day out of boredom, or not even having the energy to make a cup of tea.

These are a few of the habits I’ve developed since the lockdown started, and we’re only in the first month.

Listen along to how I’ve tried to keep myself happy while in isolation.

The lockdown has had a big impact on my mental health, as with no routine or ability to go out and socialise it’s easy to fall into a bad rut.

This has been the case for a lot of people, as a poll by YouGov recently found that six out of 10 adults are anxious because of the coronavirus.

One in 10 people are also feeling more lonely, and nearly one in five people are even feeling hopeless.

Though it’s hard to try and make yourself happy in these circumstances, there are still things you can do to distract yourself.

If you need support, you can visit websites such as Mind, Mindwell, and the Samaritans for advice.
