Covid 19 hasnâ€™t just affected our physical health, it has caused a lot of mental health issues. This is a difficult time, but there are healthy ways to cope with stress:Â
Donâ€™t be glued: Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including those on social media.
Take care of your body: Eat healthy well-balanced meals, exercise regularly and get a balanced sleep.
Helping others cope: During times of social distancing, it is especially important to stay connected with your friends and family.
Routine is your friend: It helps to manage anxiety, and will help you to adapt more quickly to this current reality. Create clear distinctions between work and non-work time.
Be compassionate: There is much that we cannot control right now, but how we talk to ourselves during these challenging times can either provide a powerful buffer to these difficult circumstances.
Maintain connections: Even the most introverted of us need some sense of connection to others for our mental as well as our physical health. We are in social isolation, but we need not to feel alone.
