The outbreak of corona virus disease 2019 may be stressful for people. It is okay to be worried and anxious about COVID 19 and the uncertainty that comes with it. We advise you to be kind to yourself and the ones around you. It is important to accept that some things are beyond your control and to learn how to manage stress without letting it cripple you. Here are a few ways in which you may be able to help yourself or others.
Stay Connected: Technology has given users the power to stay connected with loved ones without having to physically be present. We encourage you to use this to stay in touch with your family and friends. Maybe organise a little online tea party?
Keep a routine: It is important to stick to a daily healthy routine. If you are working from home, shower and have breakfast as usual and then get into work.
Avoid going down an Internet rabbit hole: Give yourself a break from all the news about COVID 19 from time to time as it can be taxing on everyone.
Find time for yourself: It is important to find time for self-care. Stay on top of your mental health. Grab a warm cup of herbal tea and just relax. Put on some nice music while you give yourself 10 minutes free from stress.
Try getting active indoors: Do not stay in bed all day. Try getting a quick 15 minute home workout during the day.
