Traffic light system

You can use this as a template to create your own traffic light system.

Yoga in room

Add people on your course on Facebook/Insta and start a chat

Get in touch with support services at Uni

Engage in your favourite ‘self care’ activity

Socially isolating facebook group

Call a friend or family member

Amber:

Go on a walk of surrounding area (Accessible Alternative – sit in your back garden or find a bench in the park)

Have a socially distanced cuppa

Listen to a podcast/music on a walk

Call a friend or family member

Green:

Cook dinner with flatmates

Call a friend or family member

Go to socially distanced/virtual sessions with a new club/society
