Wellbeing in Lockdown: Pupil Contributions

Georgia (Lower Sixth, Cedars) has written this article about the changes she has made in her day-to-day life to help her mental health during lockdown.

Throughout this lockdown I have faced many challenges, as I believe we all have. It is a very difficult time for us all right now and would be a hardship for anyone.

So, I realised that I would need to make some changes in my 2021 life to accommodate this. I would like to share some of these with you if you’d like some inspiration!

My first piece of advice would be to begin your own personal type of exercise, you can do this in many forms- I personally have been completing at-home workouts everyday and going for a run once a week. You could also indulge in bike riding or practicing a sport in a park/your backyard. I have been going for walks around my neighbourhood almost everyday with my mum or siblings, I believe that it actually helps to get outside as much as possible especially during these times.

Lastly, I make sure to spend time with my family through watching movies and cooking dinner. As well as this I find that facetiming friends (although it’s not quite the same as real life) is really helpful towards my wellbeing as we can connect over our experiences during quarantine.
