Mental Health and Social-Distancing

Hello Lifers, Happy Monday!

As you go through this week, many blessings to you!

As more and more people face the prospects of several weeks of quarantine or social distancing, we want to make sure you guys are remaining sane and focused on your happiness. Here are some tips on establishing and preserving your mental health while you work and do everything from home.

Create a routine — Create a sense of normality and productivity through this “new normal.” Begin with a simple task like showering and changing out of your pajamas. Make a to-do list of all the things you want to achieve that day.

Break up your day — Find tasks to break up your day and, where possible, change your environment for different activities. If you can, move from room to room.

Take care of your body — Eat healthily, get plenty of sleep, and exercise daily. That could include conducting indoor workout classes, stretching, and practicing meditation.

Help others — If you’re not under strict rules yourself, and you’re in a position to do so, find ways to support those in need by offering to run errands and collect supplies for them. This will create positive emotions like pride in yourself.

Stay connected — Make the most of technology and stay in touch with colleagues, friends, and family via phone calls, texts, social media, and video conferencing. Stay in contact with people — virtually — engage in activities that give you pleasure and a sense of meaning, and do what you can to help others, which is a remarkable antidote to depression.

Limit media intake — Stay informed about the situation via reliable sources but limit your news and social media intake to avoid feeling overwhelmed.

Fight boredom with various fun activities — Make the most of catching up TV series, reading, and exploring projects you have been putting off. This can help you beat the boredom and stay mentally active.

Avoid burnout — Set strict limits to your work to avoid becoming overwhelmed. If you are working from home, set boundaries on the time you work. Make time to unwind.

Focus on the positives — Amplify good news stories and honor caregivers working tirelessly to resolve the situation.

Take one day at a time — Try not to project too far into the future. Remember that these are temporary measures and you are not alone.
