Do something that you can enjoy
Making time to focus on an activity that you enjoy can go a long way in improving your mental health. It is important to disconnect to reset our brains, this can be done by reading a book or playing with your pets. Any activity that takes your mind off stressors will give your brain a chance to “switch off” for a while and reboot.
In today’s life, we are so busy taking care of everything that we forget to sometimes just stop for a while and take a couple of deep breaths. If we don’t make time for ourselves and our mental well-being we risk become even more and more stressed out or anxious, all of which has a compounding effect on our health.
Getting involved in your community and caring for others
Doing great deeds for a neighbour or others in your community gives one a sense of meaning and purpose. Staying socially connected even if it’s virtual plays an important role in lessening anxiety and str’ess. Look for big or small ways you can improve the lives of others and in turn, you would improve yours as well. The smallest act of kin’dness during times like these can help others in ways we cannot even begin to imagine.
