Try to Keep to a Routine
It is a good idea to still keep to your normal routine, even if you are not in work or school. This means, getting up at the same time, having breakfast, getting dressed, and getting on with your day. Don't be tempted to spend all day in your pyjamas!
Set hourly slots throughout the day to focus on what you need to do. If you are home from school, this could mean an hour for academic subjects, followed by an hour of doing something physical (helping out around the house?!), followed by an hour of doing something creative.
After lunch, continue with another hour of an academic subject, then get outside for an hour if possible, before finishing the homeschooling day with another hour of study.
Act as if you were at school, keep electronics switched off, keep drinking plenty of fluids, and try not to raid the fridge every 10 minutes!
Things to do Indoors
If the weather is nice you may still be able to get outdoors and go for walk. Please make sure that you still maintain distance from others, if two people reach out their arms, they should not be able to touch their fingers. Or even take up running by following the NHS Couch to 5k programme.
For the time when you are inside the Scouts have a list of activities which you can filter by things including how long they take, and how much they cost.
You could even visit a zoo, from the comfort of your own home of course!
As we are all spending more time than usual indoors, it is important to take care of your mental health and wellbeing. Visit the MIND website for further information
How is FACE Helping?
We are doing everything we can to help our members and the local community but we cannot replace the expertise of health care professionals.
We must look after the health and well-being of our members, and of our staff and volunteers by ensuring that each keeps the recommended physical distance.
We are running lending library for DVDs, Computer Games, and Jigsaws.
Please pop in to borrow, or to donate additional items.
We have started a community swap shop, which is open every weekday. Through this you can get small numbers of essentials such as fresh food and toilet roll (depending on availability). All we ask is that you consider making a small donation, or that you swap it for something which you do not need.
