Our theme for Mondays is Managing Isolation. It's a pretty big one at the moment and impacting all of us with the disruption of our regular routine. Every Monday we'll bring you an Instagram Live from our Small Things staff, discussing at topic that's on everyone's minds. We'll also bring you handy content and activities to help you manage this period of isolation.


- TIPS -

Here are some tips to help you manage isolation. For more, check out our resources section below to download some printable activities and follow our Instagram @aubsu_matter

  • Try some social apps like Netflix Party and Houseparty to stay connected
  • Keep to a regular routine - get up at the same time, get showered and dressed even though you're staying inside
  • Reach out to people - you might be confident chatting to others but some people might need an invite or helping hand!
  • Keep active! You can still go out and excersise, or stay in and try one of our Give it a Go Shorts
