Just for a moment, forget about everything happening outside your door and allow yourself to breathe because keeping your mental health in check is just as important as keeping fit amidst a pandemic. As we're all required to self-isolate to stay safe, we may be susceptible to grief, anxiety, and depression.
Stress caused by these troubling times has even affected others' way of life. Many have found it difficult to concentrate or get a good night's sleep. Some have noticed changes in appetite and interests. Unfortunately, many have also lost interest in hobbies they enjoyed in the past. Given that mental health interweaves our emotional, psychological, and physical wellbeing, it's wise to start practising healthier ways to prevent or appease stressful times.
1. Stick To A Routine
Consistent self-care is a must to see results. Create a routine that will make you feel good in the morning and that you can easily stick to within the next few days. You may either include practices that will help you get up in the morning and motivate you to get through the day. Naturally, you'll feel much better knowing that you have a stable and consistent routine day by day.
