Concentrating on your physical and mental health could not be more important while staying at home during coronavirus measures, particularly if you are on reduced hours or you have been furloughed.
To help you to stay in tip-top shape our governing body, Propertymark, have produced a quick guide on what you can do to ensure you stay healthy while staying at home:
Like many of the other points in this guide; eating healthy, well-balanced meals is something we should all be doing year-round. Lots of fruit and vegetables is key if we are going to be spending more time inside, as well as drinking plenty of water. The NHS recommends six to eight glasses a day.
You might not be able to go to the gym, but there is lots of exercise you can still do. Many personal trainers, health experts and fitness gurus do live-streaming their daily workouts for you to get involved in while at home, including Joe Wicks or Mr Motivator.
With a big change in lifestyle comes the risk of a knock-on effect to your sleeping habits, you may find you have to be a more disciplined to keep a good sleeping pattern in place. If you find yourself struggling to get to sleep in the evenings, the NHS has some tips on their website. Taking time out from your smartphones, tablets or any other devices for the final hour of the day can make a big difference.

Keeping your house clean and decluttered can have a positive impact on your mental wellbeing, especially if you are spending more time at home. During the Coronavirus, it's advised that you give a bit of extra thought to places where germs are likely to spread, for example the kitchen and the bathroom.
Friends & Family
Keeping in touch with your friends and family is really important for your mental health. Think about different ways you can socialise with your loved ones online, whether it’s video calls, online quizzes and games or streaming movies.
Keep Your Mind Active
Make sure you challenge yourself and get your brain working regularly, especially if you are currently working less. Read a book, complete a crossword or have a go at a jigsaw puzzle.
