Spotlight on: staying well

Now is not the time to let your self-care slide. You may be experiencing disruptions to your health, work, caring responsibilities or financial security. It's normal to feel heightened worry or stress, but try to protect your wellbeing with some of these ideas.

Protect yourself

  • Follow appropriate health guidelines as recommended.
  • Maintain your normal routines, where possible.
  • Keep up the self-care – exercise, nutrition and sleep are all essential foundations for wellbeing.
  • Stay connected with social supports.
  • Limit negative inputs, such as constant news cycles.
  • If you need help, seek it out. Sources of support include your GP or the Employee Assistance Program

Protect and support others

  • Practise healthy hygiene habits.
  • Stay away from others if you feel unwell.
  • Look for ways to support vulnerable people in the community.
  • Make an effort to connect with those who may be isolated or lonely.
  • Read our guide on parenting and working from home (PDF, 93.1 KB) for tips on working well while you support your children.
