We’re all stressed out right now, no matter our situation. A pandemic affects all aspects of our daily lives, and people are stressed about potentially dying while others are stressed about not being able to work or go to school. The worst part is we have no way of knowing when this all will end, which is leading to a perfect storm of wrecking our mental health. How do you protect your mental health when you are under quarantine?
First of all, make sure you are checking in with yourself and tending to your own needs. It can be tempting to watch too much news or spend too much time worrying about things outside of your control. Focus on taking care of yourself. Get plenty of sleep, plenty of water, a balanced diet, and enough exercise - but not too much.
Going for a walk, setting a routine, and calling people daily can help you stay connected. Learn more about protecting your mental health under quarantine below.
