It’s completely understandable that lockdown, a change of routine and not seeing the people that we know and love, can make us feel a bit rubbish.
There are things that you can do to feel better.
The NHS have put together this ‘Beating the Isolation Blues’ wellbeing pack to help, if lockdown is having a negative effect on you.

Why not try making some rainbow slaw and authentic wedges too? Paul has it all here for you!
Paul says: “If you’re missing the Colonel’s chicken because of lockdown, why not try our ‘My Life Fried Chicken?’ It’s fantastic with Teresa from Day Opportunities’ freshly picked salad and some purple cabbage slaw – why not cook some of our potato wedges for with it, for you very own ‘fakeaway?’”

Day Opportunities Standish remains open for members that are still attending, following the social distancing guidance. To give people in the community that extra bit of cheer, our teams and volunteers have been picking and making home grown veg bags to deliver as freebies to people receiving our hanging baskets.
We have also been helping our member Richard rekindle his youth. Here he is below, aged around two, helping his grandad to plant potatoes.
We thought it might be a nice idea to drop some potatoes off to him, so that he can have a go again, all these years later – we’re looking forward to seeing if you’ve still got those green fingers, Richard!
Our spirits were all buoyed by this lovely story, which made us remember the importance of small, genuine acts of kindness. It made us realise that when we’re under pressure it can be easy to forget how important it is to be kind – especially to ourselves.
We know that many people are doing the difficult job of juggling work whilst caring for others at the moment, so we thought we’d share this excellent blog from the Social Care Institute for Excellence, which gives tips on how to be kind to others AND our very own selves, whilst at work during the lockdown.
