Preparing for isolation

Are you ready to stay at home? Below is a checklist to help you prepare for isolation.

  • Food – do you have enough food or a way of getting food delivered?
  • Cleaning products – we all know that good hygiene helps prevent the spread, these are essential items to have in.
  • Work – can you work from home? If not, speak with your employer to make arrangements or can you take some annual leave?
  • Medication – make sure you have enough medication to last for at least two weeks
  • Exercise – think of exercise you can do in your own home – situps, stretches, pilates and jogging on the spot are good ones but there are plenty more.
  • Entertainment – have you made plans about what you can do – books, films, puzzles and activity books would be a good start.
  • Connectivity – have you got contact details of all your friends and colleagues – make sure you connect regualarly via text / telephone / email / skype
  • Mental Health -to help anxiety and mental health limit yourself to news stories, connect with others remotely, exercise and engage in activities.
