Top Tips

Maintain Your Sanity (and Immunity)

EAT WELL & DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

Work on maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet. What you put in your body can negatively or positively impact your emotions, immunity and wellbeing so try to avoid white sugar, refined foods, saturated fats and artificial colouring.

FRESH AIR & EXERCISE

Exercise reduces levels of cortisol, which is a stress hormone. Aim to move your body every day, even a walk around the block will help both your body and your headspace.

SLEEP WELL & RELAX

Stress and anxiety can cause sleep problems but it's vital for your body to rest, restore and recover. Do your best to get your 8 hours in and try to find short moments throughout the day to relax your mind.
