Look after your mental health during this pandemic. Take some exercise - walking, cycling, or if you're really fit some running! Talk to people, even if it's just "hello" or "morning" across the street, smile or have a laugh at something. Laughter is one of the best medicines! Enjoy the scenery around you, watch the wildlife or really look at a flower! Being more observant is impowering. Fresh air is good for us, we feel free when we're outside - even if it's only in your garden. There is space!

Maybe there's something you've always wanted to do but not had the time. What are you waiting for? Go do it!

Enjoy the satisfaction of achieving something. Have a dance around the kitchen and let your hair down (no one is watching) - it really is fun and doesn't have to cost anything! A lot of us are getting creative, making masks, cards, cakes etc which all helps to pass the time.

For the sick and elderly these can be lonely times so pick up the phone and call someone you know is on their own for a chat, you'll make their day and you'll feel good too.

Don't miss those Drs appointments, surgeries and hospitals are open to the "normal" day to day patients. There may be different ways of accessing help but it is still available to you.

Stoma clinics are still running so if you have a problem ring your stoma department and they will help you.

Take care and hopefully we can all meet up soon.
