Staying Home, may not feel like superhero-level work, but these seemingly small efforts make a tremendous impact to protect your vulnerable loved ones. The daily actions of each one of us go a long way in winning this war.
While following the crucial steps in keeping us safe such as maintaining good hygiene and practising social distancing, we can divert our energy and focus on practical things to keep our mind healthy as well.
Build a healthy routine
Instead of visiting your usual gym, you can work out at home. Try yoga or simple resistance training. Exercise releases endorphins in your body which triggers feelings of positivity. Boost your immunity by eating healthy, limit your junk food intake and sleep early.
Stay at home and learn something new
Pick up a new hobby like painting or baking that can reduce anxiety and stress at the same time absorbs your concentration and distracts you from your own personal worries as well as the urge to constantly check your phone or the news.
Watch a funny video!
Because LAUGHTER is the BEST MEDICINE. There is enough negative news and enough drama in the real world at the moment, let laughters heal your mood and take your mind off current events.
Be thankful that you are safe at home with a shelter and the ability to put food on your table with other essentials. Remember that the front-line workers are all working out there to make it get better.
Let’s all stay hopeful that better days are ahead of us. Have faith! Tough times don’t last, tough people do!
