Life after COVID-19
As COVID19 restrictions ease around Australia, our sights are set to the future and what our new normal will look like. Adjusting back to a Covid-free world can be hard especially after weeks of lockdown and months of restrictions. When easing back into life after lockdown it is important to:
1. Take it slowly
Simple, daily activities that you saw before the coronavirus epidemic such as grocery shopping, spending time with friends or family or even driving a car may seem intimidating and strange. It is important to recognise this and seek guidance from a GP if feelings of worry and or anxiety worsen or persist
2. Reconnect with loved ones
It has been quite a while since we last properly spoke to a family or friend in person, that is why after restrictions have eased it is important to spend some time together. This will help you process the experience, allowing you to rebuild the your bond and progress into the next phase of your relationship
3. Seek Help
Covid19 has impacted everyone in different ways. Although we all feel a little nervous, feelings of anxiety, difficult sleeping, changes to your appetite, irritability and bouts of crying are signs that some support is needed. Speaking to your GP or calling the The Older Persons COVID-19 Support Line on 1800171866 is advised.
4. Remember The Advice
Do not forget the professional advice that has been designed to keep you safe. Wash your hands regularly, sneeze or cough in your elbow and self isolate for 14 days if diagnosed with COVID19. Also remember to keep up with new rules as they change so you know what you can and can’t do.
Unfortunately the road out of this pandemic is not going to be easy. However, it is important to remember that we are all in this together. It is also important to not only be patient with those around you but with yourself too. Here are some simple steps that you can use to avoid feeling uneasy or down:
- Read the newspaper or watch the news, it is important to keep yourself informed about what is happening.
- It is important to try and maintain your routine as a sudden change in your routine may make you feel anxious and nervous
- If you feel anxious watching the news or scrolling through your social media, it is important to then minimise how much media you consume.
- Try to maintain social contact with your loved ones. If you are unfortunately not able to reach them physically, you may be able to phone or facetime them.
- Limit the amount of alcohol you drink or don’t drink any at all. Do not to use alcohol or drugs as a coping mechanism in this uneasy time.
