  4. All equipment is wiped down with disinfectant after each patient

In everyday life 

  • Social interaction plays a critical role in our overall level of wellbeing, so during this time of “social distancing” we need to take advantage of the wonderful technology we have available to us. make phone calls, Skype and FaceTime to family and friends daily.
  • Keeping positive and having “Hope” plays an important role in reducing stress, whilst we understand this is an extraordinary event we must remember we have an incredible medical system here in Australia and the measures that have been imposed have managed to keep Australia in good shape.
  • Humor, watch comedies to help lift the mood.
  • Movement and exercise, as this is another way to boost you immune system. We have seen many online exercise classes since the gyms have closed but we can do many activities on our own likes squats, star jumps or even stepping up on our toes.
  • Diet with fresh fruit and vegetables. It is easy to resort to “comfort foods” alcohol and snacks which can create chemical stress in the body and reduce our immune defence.
  • Managing pain, as this can reduce sleep and create inflammatory changes in the body. This along with pain medication will also reduce your body’s natural defences.

Please call us on (07) 5539-9798 if you have any concerns or further suggestions.
