Look after yourself
We’re all still allowed to get out to exercise once a day, in the form of a walk, run or bike ride – so make the most of it. Get out for a stroll, avoiding crowded places and being mindful of the two-metre rule, and enjoy the fresh air.
There’s lots you can do indoors as well, with plenty of free workout videos on YouTube, from the likes of The Body Coach Joe Wicks, Yoga with Adriene and Strictly star Oti Mabuse. The NHS has some great ideas for gym-free workouts too.
Team UWS are sharing daily top tips, exercise ideas and useful links to help everyone find a way to keep active that works for them. Follow them on the Team UWS Facebook and Twitter and get inspired.
Try and eat as healthily as you can with what you’ve got – and avoid the temptation to snack all day. BBC Good Food has some great store cupboard recipes. UWS has its own cook books too, full of healthy, budget-friendly cooking ideas – The Afoodable Guide, and The Afoodable Guide: The Sequel.
And don’t forget to do the things you enjoy. Pick up a book, watch a movie, play computer games, listen to a podcast, try some knitting – whatever it takes for a bit of escapism.
A good night’s sleep is vital for your physical and mental wellbeing – especially now. Try get to bed at your normal time, and you could even sleep in a little later now you don’t have your commute to campus.
