With so many cities shutting down non-essential services, we’re in an unprecedented time. As a society in recent times, we’ve never been faced with being stuck at home. Nor have very many of us faced a pandemic like COVID-19. And while some of us are introverts, we all have mental health needs that may not be met in the weeks to come. Or until all this is over.
With that in mind, I wanted to share this article with you from the BBC. The article is about things that you can do from home to take care of your mental and social health while in isolation. While we may not be able to gather, we can still help each other from afar.
What Else Can You Do?
- Keep A Routine– Don’t let the days run together. A routine will help mitigate stress.
- Stay Informed, Not Obsessed– Like the post linked above mentions…while it is important to know what is going on…don’t fixate on it. Give yourself a break.
- See The Opportunity- Is there something you’ve been wanting to do around the house? That book you’ve been wanting to get to? Maybe you’ve been wanting to take more time with your family. Remember that there can be a silver lining in everything if you look for it.
- Pickup New Skills– We don’t know what will happen with the economy, but while that sorts itself out there are plenty of places online to pick up new skills to add to your repertoire. Whether you focus on things for your career, personal care, or a side gig, new skills can never hurt.
As we continue on, keep each other in mind and support one another. We can get through COVID-19 if we stick together. Take care.
