NEWS | 23/03/2020The organisation has rolled out several programmes for this period of quarantine.
The Foundation's Training Department has produced this material, which caters for different levels and features fun, educational activities. The first of these was a training course to improve our psychological well-being: Eight psychological tips to cope with quarantine.
The quarantine that we're currently experiencing can have a psychological impact that affects our mental health. Throughout the duration of this period, it's perfectly normal to experience various unpleasant feelings, such as anxiety, stress, fear and sadness.
The advice seeks for us to try and work on accepting the situation or, in other words, recognising that there are aspects of our reality that we can't change. It's also important to concern ourselves with the things we can control, such as, for example, washing our hands regularly, only leaving our homes for strictly essential reasons, using gloves and respecting the safety distance. It's also important to find time for physical activity, which will keep us active and helps to make us feel better on account of the endorphins it produces.
