With the news changing every hour due to COVID-19 we know that our new reality can be a lot to handle. In between school closures, toilet paper madness, and a financial crisis our world has been turned upside down and it is okay if you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed. Navigating through life is a little different than it was just 6 months ago. Here is a small list of things that can potentially help you stay sane during this difficult time.
Start your day on a positive note.
Starting your day with a positive tone can help you for the rest of the day. Making your bed is a simple way to start your day off on a good note.
This is proven to be extremely helpful with mind and body wellness. Just starting with 2 minutes a day can help improve mindfulness.
Voice your gratitude towards things in your life. Nothing is to small to express gratitude. Say thank you for things that you usually take for granted.
This is an obvious yet highly effective way to improve mental health. Times like these, exercise is especially important and can help add some normalcy to your day.
Accept the situation we are in.
Accepting your situation does not mean that you will enjoy it. It simply means you know what is going on, you understand it, and accept that there is nothing you can do to change it. Doing this will help you stay calm and have a more peaceful state of mind.
