Mental health during lockdown
Updated: Jun 22, 2020
Covid-19 is not only affecting our physical health but our mental health too.
Get into a realistic and basic routine. This will help you plan your day ahead and could boost productivity which can help elevate your mood.
Rule number one, there shouldn't be any rules, everyday will be different and if you can not adhere to your tasks don't pressure yourself too much.
Secondly dress up, this helps you feel better and keeps you motivated.
Set your alarm for your preferred working up times
Set clear start and end times of your day.
Take lunch breaks and drink plenty of water
Try something new for example Baking, Painting or Writing short stories
Keep a diary about your day (and keep a record of your workload)
Find a new passion for instance find a new course to explore, there are a lot of free online courses you can try.
Take regular scheduled breaks from your social media and screens. It can be overwhelming and stressful so take a break from the world and create your own world at home.
Start a conversation, it is important to stay in contact with friends and family members.
If you are away from your family and friends check in from time to time.
If you are struggling with your mental health be honest and open to help.
Contact your GP and get help as they are still open.
Spend quality time with your family, add game nights such as monopoly or test your knowledge with quizzes.
Don't forget to be kind to yourself and remember it will get better in time.
