Feeling overwhelmed is normal in these challenging times – be kind to yourself.

Why not get outside and enjoy the fresh air. Go for a walk around your local neighbourhood, or cycle around your local park. Or perhaps you can listen to some new music, have a virtual coffee date with a friend or watch your favourite TV show – anything that makes you smile.

Ways to be kind to yourself

  • Go outside and enjoy nature everyday  
  • Explore your local parks and waterways
  • Play some music you love
  • Cook something new
  • Plant something and watch it grow
  • Take up a new hobby
  • Contact family and friends online or on the phone
  • Watch a film you have always wanted to watch
  • Keep a journal
  • Take some time away from the news

How to keep moving while you’re at home

As we're all now spending a lot more time at home than we might like, staying as physically active as possible is more important than ever, for both our physical and mental health.

To help you stay active while at home our partners have developed a range of online fitness programs to help you.

To help you make the most of your essential exercise outings during the coronavirus pandemic, VicHealth have created a list of tips for cycling and walking while staying physically distant.
