Teenager Jake finished rehab at The Children’s Trust in December 2019. His mum Bal shared their experiences in lockdown and now Jake has shared his tips in the video below. Jake says:
We should all be doing our physio – and getting outside every day, whether it’s 10-15 minutes – walking or jogging, whatever you are able to do.
"We can also do things that we love to enjoy. I like play outside playing football. It really helps – I love it.
"Keep in contact with friends and family – that’s the main thing that gets you through.
"Have a sleeping routine is very good – it keeps you going throughout the day."
Many of the tips Jake has mentioned are covered in more detail by experts at The Children’s Trust in in our piece on tips for families on routine, relaxation, reassurance and more, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
