Wellbeing tips

Care Workers face many challenges when it comes to caring for clients, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is important that our Care Workers take time to look after themselves as well as their clients.

We have put together some tips and techniques for Care Workers, to help with their mental health and wellbeing during this time.

Tip 1 – Breathing techniques

Breathing techniques are a great way of helping you to destress and feel more relaxed. These can take a few moment and require practice each day to help you get the most out of the exercise. Firstly, relax your shoulders and begin to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth, slowly and gently, with a count to 4 breathing in and a count to 4 breathing out. Also, placing your hand on your stomach and feeling it rise as you breath in and fall as your breathe out will help you become more aware of your breathing.

Tip 2 – Be creative

Whether it’s going for a walk, cycling, painting, sewing, baking or anything else that interests you, doing the things you love can help you to feel relaxed. Simply doing something that you love and enjoy goes a long way to helping you feel more comfortable and relaxed.

Tip 3 – Having ‘worry time’

Setting a time to focus on anything that may be worrying or causing you stress is a great way to deal with those issues. Try writing your issues down, seeing them in black and white can really help you to focus in on the issue and highlight any triggers and ways of overcoming the issue. It’s also important to write down things that are going well so you can use those as motivation.

Tip 4 – Talk to someone

Talking to someone you trust or a loved one can really help with your mental health. Despite Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, it is still possible to talk to someone. You can make a phone or video call, or even writing a letter it is important to talk to someone and share your thought and feelings.

You can also send a message with FRONTLINE to 85258 to start a conversation with Shout’s messaging support service.
