Supporting Your Physical Health During Self-Isolation

2nd March 2020

With so much uncertainty and the increase in self-isolation, we’ve put together some top tips and expert advice to help you with your physical wellbeing if you or someone you know is isolated. Let’s keep going!

Stay physically active

To support both your physical and mental health, if you feel well enough to do so (check in with NHS advice if you’re unsure) it’s important to keep active. You could do a home workout, yoga session, sit ups, press ups or simple stretches to keep your body moving. Why not try Les Mills on Demand for access to over 800 exercise classes you can do from the comfort of your own home.

Sleep well

A good night’s sleep is really important for your health. The National Sleep Foundation recommends dimming the lights an hour before bed – this helps to regulate your body and tell your brain it’s time to shift into sleep mode. At home, try using room darkening shades and curtains to keep it dark at night and while you sleep. Take a look at 10 tips to help you drift off.
