Practicing good hygiene and maintaining physical distance from others while staying socially connected are all part of staying healthy during this crisis. Here are a few quick tips to help you maintain your health and manage your feelings.  

Stay virtually connected with family and friends

Getting support from those you love is helpful in stressful times. To alleviate feelings of isolation, reach out to others, especially if you are feeling anxious.

Stay Safe, Stay Home!

Seriously. Just stay home! It’s up to all of us to help “flatten the curve” by drastically minimizing our social interaction. Only leave the house for essentials and go alone. Don’t congregate and stay 6 feet apart from others. 

Get Outside and Take a Break!

Getting outside can benefit both your physical and mental health. Maintain physical distance from others when at parks or on a trail, but try to get out at least once a day to keep from feeling cooped up.

Turn Off The News

Limit what you read or set a time to get caught up on the day’s events. Constantly checking social media and online news sources can trigger anxious thoughts and exhausting panic. Stick to trusted sources of information to ensure you are getting the right facts.

Cut Yourself Some Slack

It can be overwhelming to adjust to working at home, home schooling children, ensuring you have food and basic supplies when shelves are empty, and being unsure of the future. Remember, these are unprecedented times in our history! No one really knows what we are doing or how to do it best. It’s fine to start working later in the day, have your kids watch a little too much tv, and eat cold cereal for dinner. We’re all in this together!

Serve Others

A great way to manage feelings of helplessness is to do something kind for someone else. Check in on an elderly neighbor. Pick up milk at the store for a mom home with small children. Give blood. Do someone’s yardwork. There are so many opportunities to serve others. Not only will you feel better yourself, you’ll be helping someone else through this tough time as well.
