The government is now advising us to avoid all but essential contact, which is essential during the current climate.

Spending time at home and missing many regular social activities may be something incredibly alien to busy working women however, it will help to try to simply see it as a different period of time in life and not necessarily such a bad one.

The rhythm of life will inevitably alter, it will allow the chance to be in touch with others in different ways than usual - put simply, it is time to pick up the phone, or Skype and talk, not just text or email.

A new daily routine may be required for those now working from home, rather than the office. No more rush hour communte, dropping children off at school or attending late night events. A temporary halt to meetings with colleagues in the office, serving customers face to face and "dressing up" for work.

Creating a quiet working space at home, free from distractions and clutter is easier said than done, however with a little planning and co-operation from those who might live with you, it can be achieved.

Remember to take regular breaks, often discipline can be lost and a concept of time too. Give yourself adequate time during the day to walk away from your computer screen and phone, pop your head out of the door, breathe in some fresh air and even take a little stroll if you can, invest in your own wellbeing and mental health.

Eating healthily has never been easier when the kitchen is so close, making a big salad packed with nutritious vegetables and snacking on a variety of fruits is easy and beneficial to health and wellbeing.

Finally, let us also remember that whilst we are not travelling and avoiding packed trains, buses and roads, we are also helping our bodies avoid toxins like exhaust fumes.

Indeed, there are many benefits to working from home and no doubt there are a few disadvantages too, however today it is vital for the sake of our nation and the NHS which is under incredible pressure.
