SeaChange have identified the 10 safety behaviours we can all do to Starve the COVID-19 Beast! We explain why they are important, what to do, and how make each safety behaviour a long-lasting habit. See below for key information on Physical Distancing:
Why you should ensure Physical Distancing?
Physical Distancing greatly reduces the spread of COVID-19
When should you ensure Physical Distancing?
Most businesses will have now implemented visual markings -usually on the floor- to encourage people to stick to the physical distancing rule. What is key is to get used to what this distance looks / feels like so that we can easily implement it 100% of the time – as much as possible.
Triggers to Form the Habit(s):
- Practising at home by measuring a room or the distance between 2 items that have a very familiar position in our home can help to fix this distance template in our mind, e.g. “I know that my entrance lobby is 2-metres wide” or maybe the distance between our couch and the T.V.
- Other comparisons include: just a little over the length of a standard size mattress, maybe our dining room table or the length of our sofa, etc.
- Once this is understood, we can apply it with other people when out and about.
- We know it is hard, but we must also resist the urge to come and invade other people’s personal space when talking to them!
