Humans like certainty.
We seek this by exercising our instinctive strength of curiosity to understand, predict and control the uncertainty that life presents. This provides us with a sense of security and the confidence to adapt our behaviour.
The recent outbreak of COVID-19 is undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges we will face in our lifetime. It has tremendously impacted our lifestyles, and tested our mental health, as we try our best to adapt.
As we ride this wave together, it’s important for us to remember that we can exercise control in the present, which includes washing our hands frequently, avoiding unnecessary travel away from home, and keeping our distance from others.
To further support our mental and physical health, our Wellbeing Health Team encourage you to check-in with our MENS REMAP pillars. Here are a few simple strategies that you can implement with your family at home:
Mindfulness: Challenge yourself to stay in the present
Exercise: Move your body every day
Nutrition: Fuel your body with immune-boosting foods
Sleep: Get enough sleep each night
Relationships: Share your feelings with friends and family, and be prepared to listen
Engagement: Do something you love every day
Meaning and Purpose: Help others in your family
Achievement: Stay on track by setting realistic goals
Positive Emotion: Look for the positives in each day
Let’s take this time to care for ourselves and care for each other.
We will get through this together!
