It’s important to take care of your mental health to cope with the big changes to your everyday life.
These tips may help.
Apps like FaceTime and Skype can help you feel more connected to the people you normally see in person.
Dust off that fitness equipment at home that you haven’t used in a while. Apps, many with videos, offer exercise options. Try something different from your usual routine.
Keep up with current events, but don’t let internet or TV news be your main activity. Read a book, watch a movie or pull out your old board games. Organize a closet, clear out your junk drawer or get back to that hobby you haven’t had time for.
Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. If you are struggling, call your primary care doctor. They may be able to see you over the phone or by video chat. Or they may refer you to someone else.
