Tips to stay sane during the coronavirus lockdown | King Price Insurance

On March 23, 2020, it could have been your birthday, anniversary or other special day, eclipsed a little by the President’s address telling the nation we were going into lockdown for 21 days. It should have been scary (and it kind of was), but we were united and proud of the measures the government was taking to keep as many of us as possible from contracting COVID-19…

Sho, but we sound very serious. It’s not what we’re known for (unless it’s about how serious we are about saving you money on insurance), but you’ll forgive us for that. It’s a somewhat serious time. Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to lose your head and hide your smile altogether. It just means you need to be aware of how you’re coping with lockdown.

To help you, we’ve put together some essential tips on how to stay sane over the next few weeks.

Take care of your sanity

We’re certainly not going to sit here and tell everyone to smile all the time because it’s not healthy. What we’re going to say is that you really need to take care of your mental well-being during this difficult time.

Here are our recommendations:

  • Build a routine that will hold your “new normal” together, give you a sense of control, and give you goals to move towards.
  • Keep in touch with friends and family and especially anyone you fear who may be at risk.
  • Create scheduled media times so you’re not bombarded with messages that stress you out.
  • Exercise also helps your mind, so look for at-home workout routines.
  • Make it a habit to nourish your body with delicious foods as this will help keep your mind happy.
  • Look for mental health support online or reach out to loved ones if you’re feeling shaky.

Talk to your children

It might be easier to just pawn the kids with treats and distractions. And there is a time for that too. Don’t underestimate the power of ice cream during a meltdown. But it’s also a good idea to stay calm and reassure her with facts rather than rumours. For example the fact that we just have fun at home for 3 weeks to make sure we don’t get sick. When you speak to them like this, you are giving them the truth in a way they can handle.

nourish your body

Your immune system is so important and there are things you can do to ensure you stay fit during lockdown.

Here are our recommendations:

  • Exercise during lockdown is possible and essential to de-stress your body and mind. So get online and follow a Pilates tutorial in your lounge or dust off your old stationary bike.
  • It may be tempting to take comfort, but do your best to fuel your body with plenty of delicious foods, including veggies, protein, and treats. Diversity is key.
  • If possible, sit outside and fill up on vitamin D.
  • A good night’s sleep helps boost your immune system.

Not. Panic. To get.

We are allowed to go out during lockdown to get essentials. But that doesn’t mean you have to panic shop whole store. We can’t put it any other way, so we’ll say it as clearly as possible: Hamster buying is not moral and harms everyone, especially the weak. Better make a list of what you need for a week or two and don’t overdo it. We have been assured that the grocery stores will continue to operate and that there will be enough for everyone. So don’t panic.

For the fun

It’s so important to consciously have fun during lockdown as your sense of humor will keep you and your loved ones together. So watch comedy, discover your inner chef, do crosswords in the sun, share funny jokes on WhatsApp, make sure you do everything you do at 10:00 for tea and at 16:00 00 o’clock for a drink with the family…

All over the world we are seeing unexpected levels of contagion… So the lockdown is a critical time to stop the spread in our country. We have to pull together because our safety is in the hands of the other.

See you on the other side.
