During this age of uncertainty, it is more prevalent than ever to first understand your situation and then act upon it. In light of the COVID-19 safety precautions, this quarantine may seem daunting to some. Being thrown out of your routine, being forced to be confined to your home for a likely long period of time is definitely a valid reason to be stressed, scared or even angry. However, with some tweaks in your attitude, a shift in perspective and a change of actions, these steps could make social isolation seem much less invasive than you may have originally thought.
According to verymindwell.com, the following 3 adjustments can greatly increase your overall mood and productivity.
Being as Active as Possible
Staying Informed, but Not Overwhelmed
In regards to establishing routines to your schedule, from my personal experience, you promote a sense of attachment to these activities that build a fixed structure into your everyday life, rather than following an unstructured, loose daily regiment. When a physical, strenuous activity is involved, you allow your mind to focus elsewhere. Even relatively short periods of physical inactivity can have an impact on your health, both mentally and physically. The last adjustment is especially important to keep in mind. Our bodies adapt to the headlines very easily. The scarier or frightening the news is, the more likely you face higher levels of stress and fear. Allow yourself to be adequately involved, but not to the point where it becomes an obsession and the majority of your day is spent on devastating news articles. In fact, even though it may seem harder to find, follow the good news. Websites such as https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/ or simply typing “Uplifting news” into google will do the job. As an added tip, use this extra time to develop or learn new skills! The following 5 websites are excellent tools that can help hone in and enhance your skills.
