By introducing some small changes to your lifestyle through home improvements, perhaps an exercise regime, or new cooking tips these will help to keep your brain, body and mind stimulated to see you through the next few months.

From finding that new healthy recipe for your weekly meal plan, to coming home to some brand-new laminate flooring in your hallway, here are some hot tips to follow. 

Put Your Health First – Your mental and physical health work hand in hand.  As a nation we have probably never spend so much time in our home environment before and consequently many of us are turning to home DIY.

Brighten up your room with stylish laminate flooring

One trend that definitely picked up during the first national lockdown was home improvements. Online searches saw people flood to order new furniture, soft furnishings and accessories for their homes. It certainly makes sense, if spending additional time at home to focus on a project.

Laminate flooring searches went through the roof at the start of 2020. People wanted to bring their homes into the 21st century with some stylish new floors that looked great and were easy to clean. With its shiny effect, laminate flooring is known to give people a real sense of satisfaction and brighten their mood. Looking clean and modern, it can make a homeowner a lot happier. 

Not only can you order laminate flooring online from places such as Flooring Direct meaning you do not even have to leave the house, with a little thought and focus you can also fit it yourself. How satisfying is that?

Consider getting a pet

There are many known benefits from having a pet and one for sure is to help combat loneliness. Not only do pets provide great company, but they can also really give you a boost in terms of your mental health. That smiley face and cheerful bark when you come down to get your morning breakfast can really lift your mood. You can go on long walks (locally and within reason!) with your dog or watch your cat chase around in the garden looking for its next meal. 

Other pets like rabbits and fish are common and knowing they will never leave you can provide a great boost in what is an incredibly tough time. Being responsible for a pet in terms of keeping them healthy can really focus your mind too. You want to feed them correctly and keep them healthy, just as you would your own family. Fortunately, even though pets cannot speak, modern technology has evolved so much that we can now ensure our pets are living a healthy life similar to us. With your pet’s health becoming even more important in a difficult time, pet intolerance testing could certainly put your mind at rest.

Ultimately, during the national lockdown, in terms of physical and mental health look after yourself, family, your environment and those around you.
