None of us know how long lockdown will last, and it can be daunting to consider that it may be months. It’s really useful to break it down, rather than thinking about the period as a whole, stretching ahead, try to think about each day or each week as it comes.
2. Set some goals
Within that, it’s important to create some “tick features” – some goals to work towards – says the isolation expert. And try and have a bit of variety as well. Make your aims wide-ranging.
Another important thing is to think about who you’re isolating with. Being aware of how we can use our habitat is really important, and we need to make sure that everyone has a private space to retreat to. Not having privacy can be really claustrophobic.
It’s also really important to think about how different people react when they’re under stress and under pressure. Some people can become really loud and angry and aggressive, whereas other people might retreat into themselves.
