It’s more important than ever to focus on our health and wellness in the current COVID-19 climate. It’s all about staying safe and staying well, as well as keeping physically fit and mentally healthy.
Supporting others in our community – especially the elderly – is of high importance. Your neighbour may need a hand to complete their grocery shopping, get to the pharmacy or set up their computer so they can video call their grandchildren. Why not pop a note in their letterbox offering to help.
Asking if a friend or family member needs a chat, or changing your weekly boys’ night to everyone tuning in to the same TV channel and having a group video call, will also help ease loneliness and uncertainty during this tough time.
Every business is focused on protecting the health and well-being of all their customers, team members and greater community. The usual high standards of hygiene and cleanliness have been increased, and businesses are asking that you postpone your visit if you’ve been unwell or had contact with someone who has been overseas in the past two weeks. However, there are still ways you can support them. For instance, if a family member, friend or work colleague has a birthday or special occasion coming up that you’d been planning to buy a gift for, why not purchase it early. Many Peninsula businesses also have gift vouchers and products that you can buy online. Early purchases will be a big help to our retailers and their staff.
Instead of cancelling your regular beauty appointment for whatever reason, why not just postpone it until the pandemic has eased. If it’s a medical appointment, online consultations are becoming increasingly popular as the community begins to self-isolate.
