The World is on Pause. Wellbeing Tips
The world is on pause.
We’d like to take this opportunity of reprieve to thank you.
We are so grateful to all of the great people we work with and alongside. Although we’re all separated right now, in many ways we’ve never been more together. This is a strange and crazy time for all of us. We wish you and yours health, strength and resilience. We look forward to the time, not far from now when we can all start travelling and seeing the world again. For now let’s stay positive and make the most. Plenty of time to plan the next adventure!
(for when the time comes)
- Stay Connected. Use online tools to keep in touch with friends and family.
- Acknowledge your feelings and reach out for support. It is completely normal to feel overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, worried or scared in the current situation. Allow yourself time to notice and express what you are feeling.
- Whereever possible we should try to stick to our daily routines. Try to go to sleep and wake up at the same time, eat at regular times, shower, change your clothes, have regular e-meetings with colleagues or virtual coffee dates with friends, do your chores. Meditating and exercising can help you to relax and have a positive impact on your thoughts. Try not to increase unhealthy habits like comfort eating, drinking or smoking.
- Seek accurate information from legitimate sources. You may find it useful to limit your media intake. Get the facts in order to help distinguish facts from rumours. Seek information updates at specific times during the day once or twice.
