Keep yourself mobile by getting up and moving around as much as possible. If you have a garden, backyard or balcony, go out and get some fresh air.
Stay away from anyone you live with. If you have to be in the same room as someone else, keep 2 metres away and wear a medical or respirator face mask.
Drink plenty of water and try to avoid alcohol if you are not feeling well.
Stay in touch with people over the phone. Ask a family member, friend or neighbour to check in with you over the phone a few times every day. Let them know how you are feeling.
Older people can phone the charity ALONE on 0818 222 024 from Monday to Sunday, 8am to 8pm.
Self-isolation can be boring or frustrating and it may affect your mood and feelings. You may feel low, worried or have problems sleeping.
