Coronavirus: health and wellbeing support

There are lots of ways to take care of your health and wellbeing during this time. Please see below some advice and guidance. Remember if you are unwell you can still get advice and support from the NHS.

 

Eating well

A well balanced healthy diet can help you feel your best and support your immune system.  Eating a wide variety of foods whether fresh or frozen and drinking plenty of fluids will all contribute to a healthy diet. See our list of resources below.

Check out the NHS's key guides:

 

Vitamin D

If you have been spending a lot of time indoors or covered up when outside, you may not be getting enough vitamin D. We need vitamin D to absorb minerals from our diet and maintain healthy bones, teeth and muscles. You can increase your intake by:

  • spending time in direct sunlight
  • eating foods rich in vitamin D such as oily fish, red meat and eggs
  • taking a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D. These can be found in supermarkets, pharmacies and online

You can find more information on the NHS's guide to vitamin D

 

Keeping Active

Physical activity can help improve your physical and mental wellbeing. It can be as simple as going for a walk or a cycle or you can get great work out at home. See our list of resources below:

 

Mental Health 

It is important that we take care of out mental wellbeing  as we do our physical health during this time. You can find advice and support on our mental health support page.
