Practice OPEN during Covid-19 in person - safety measures in place - by phone + Skype
Some people have asked me for advice, what you could do to stay safe. Please follow the guidelines as given by the government. Consult your GP, NHS information and your pharmacist. I am not in a position to provide medical advice, as I am not a medically trained professional. I studied some Health Psychology during my Masters in Psychology as it is in my view important to have a holistic attitude to mental health.
Hence here some general comments about measures, which research I have come across over the years, has indicated to be useful for peoples overall wellbeing. Please note, that none of this is directly aimed at you personally and you should consult your GP, also: none of this is proven to be useful for the coronavirus and is not targeted at this specifically, again, please consult your doctor or pharmacists or the NHS helpline on 111.
Research on wellbeing indicates that diminished physical health can impact our mental wellbeing and vice versa: feeling mentally unwell can impact our physical health. The immune system is often described as playing a key role. Helping and promoting our immune system can help us physically and psychologically and make us more resilient. I am happy to explore with you your thoughts and ponderings on how you can improve your overall wellbeing.
Whilst hygiene and social distancing have their place, in well-being research I have consulted over the years, what strikes me most is the interaction of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual/transpersonal/metaphysical wellbeing.
