8. Stay connected
Social distancing does not mean completely cutting ourselves off from others - in fact, right now, we need each other more than ever. Especially if you’re isolating on your own, try to reach out to at least one person every day (friends, family, neighbours, the elderly) by text, or even better phone, to check in on how they are doing. Making dates for ‘virtual coffee’ or ‘virtual drinks’ with friends and family is a great way to stay connected and give you something to look forward to. And if you’re out for a walk, take the time to smile or say hello to others – from at least two metres away of course!
