In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, it is now more crucial than ever to look after your mental health. Here are some things you can do to feel better and take care of your mental health right now.
Mute social media
A wave of misinformation and fake news is flooding social media right now, which can be pretty overwhelming if you’re constantly exposed to media. Try to limit your screen time and mute media if you notice any signs of anxiety.
Spend time with your family
This is the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with your loved ones. Talk, laugh, and share your concerns, because this is the best way to support each other. Now you also have to catch up with friends you haven’t heard for a while via Skype or texting.
Practicing mindfulness means focusing on positive things and living in the present moment. When you find yourself worrying about the future, find a way to stay in the present moment and keep in mind that things that are stressing you out right now won’t last forever.
