How to look after your mental health while staying at home

Monday, 17 August 2020, 04:13 PM by Greenwich College

Most people in Australia are currently either social distancing, self-isolating, or self-quarantining. Here are some ways to look after your mental wellbeing while staying at home.

Stay connected with loved ones – use your phone, social media and apps such as Skype, FaceTime and WhatsApp to stay in touch with family and friends. Touch base with someone every single day.

Do things you enjoy – read that pile of books and watch those TV shows you missed. Why not try a new pastime that you can do at home or online?

Stay healthy – focus on eating well and getting enough exercise and good-quality sleep. Take the time to cook fresh food, do online yoga or aerobics, meditate and focus on maintaining good sleep habits. Keeping up healthy routines will help both your physical and mental health.

Limit your media and online exposure - Seek advice from credible sources only and don’t consume news all day long.


If you are finding that you are struggling, don’t hesitate to ask for help.

There are a number of support options available to provide you with counselling and useful information to help support your mental health and wellbeing, based on your specific needs.
