Right now, everyone wants to know what they can do to keep themselves safe physically and emotionally. Almost every client I see shares this concern. In this moment in time, we are both more alone and more together than ever before. Social distancing, quarantine, and the loss of jobs is probably impacting you or at least one person you know/care about.
Humans are social beings that thrive on interpersonal connections. I have had countless clients focus our recent sessions on what they should do to keep their spirits high and manage the stress of limited social interaction. Here are some tips to manage the COVID crisis:
1. Eating well
3. Limit Screen Time
5. Mindfulness and meditation
6. Find new hobbies or activities
7. Stay Social
I know that these times are stressful but taking some small steps to take care of your mental well-being can go a long way. Stay safe!
