Watch the story

Coronavirus is a pandemic reaching far across the world. Many of us are being asked to self-isolate for the first time and that can be a scary thought with a lot of uncertainty.

Anne Johnston - otherwise known as AJ - has been living with the effects of her brain injury for two years and says that self-isolation has been a big part of that.

In this video she draws upon her experience to offer 9 tips for self-isolation:

  1. Remember this change is temporary
  2. Stay in touch with family and friends by finding ways to connect remotely
  3. Make sure you still get some exercise
  4. Remember to eat well
  5. Keep your brain active by doing puzzles or learning a new skill
  6. Keep a journal
  7. Write yourself a ‘happy list’ – What things can you do that make you happy?
  8. Write yourself a ‘to-do list’ – maybe there’s a house project you’ve been meaning to do for ages.
  9. Be kind to yourself and to others!
