1. PRACTICING SELF CARE

    Healthy Habits

    Daily take care of your body. Take time for deep breaths, to stretch, or to meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, and get plenty of sleep. If you are not on actual quarantine, while keeping your distance from others take the time to go for a walk in nature or run outside.Exercise is a proven treatment for stress and depression. Workouts from home are not limited and could include floor exercises, yoga, exercise videos  and using home exercise equipment, such as a bands and stationary bicycle. 

     

    Mental Stimulation

    Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy. Being confined to home for an extended period of time can cause boredom, stress and conflict. Limit the time looking at screens: Don’t rely too heavily on the television and technology. Treat quarantine as an opportunity to do some of those things you never usually have time for, such as board games, craft, drawing and reading. Learn something new! There’s a nearly unlimited number of online classes on websites like edX or Skillshare, whether you want to learn coding or needlepoint.



    Keeping Spirits Up 

    Find out everything you can about the infection from reliable sources. Talk to the other members of the family about the infection. Understanding the illness will reduce anxiety. Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
