Being in isolation can become boring at times, and can make you also feel very anxious. To help keep you occupied, check out some ideas below thanks to health.gov.au to help you cope during this time.
Suggestions to help with self-isolation include:
- Keep in touch with family and friends via telephone, email or social media.
- Where possible, keep up normal daily routines, such as regular eating times and exercising.
- If you cannot work, try to find something that you are interested in/passionate about to learn or keep yourself busy with such as online classes or a hobby you’ve always wanted to start.
- Ask your child’s school to supply assignments or homework by post or email to keep your children occupied.
- Do things that help you relax and use isolation as an opportunity to do activities you rarely have time for.
- Workout from home - there are many apps out there for free workouts that also don’t need any equipment.
- Cook delicious meals you might have always wanted to, but never found the time too.
- Vary your activities around the house - don’t just use technology to keep you occupied.
