Mental Health in the times of Covid-19: Effective tips to overcome stress

The rapid spread of Covid-19 pandemic has left a large number of people under undue stress. We, at Doctors Clinic Blog, bring you some easy tips to cope up from coronavirus related stress. Take a look:

Maintain a daily schedule and follow it religiously

One of the greatest challenges for most people during the lockdown has been to maintain a schedule. Staying home all day with nothing significant to do takes a toll on your mental well-being. Therefore, it is important to maintain a schedule and follow it religiously. Keep your wake-up and sleep times fixed, eat healthy meals, and work out at home to keep your body active.

Limit your ‘media diet’

The media is notorious for highlighting the negative aspects of the pandemic instead of focusing on the brighter side. Such news exerts undue stress on the mind, and induces panic. Therefore, it is recommended that you keep a check on it. Stay aware of the events happening around the world, but don’t let those events cause you any stress.

Reminisce of the better times

The spread of Covid-19 is a difficult time for everyone. It is, therefore, of utmost importance that we hold on to the brighter and better times. Reminiscing of cherished moments spent with your friends and family can help keeping unwanted stress at bay during the lockdown.

Limit the time spent on social media

Spending more and more time on social media seems a logical thing to do at a time when there is only a handful of significant tasks one can perform during Covid-19 pandemic. However, this excess indulgence in social media can trigger panic and stress due to the human tendency of comparing their own life to that of the others. Therefore, it is advised to limit the time spent scrolling through social media newsfeed.

Pay attention to your emotions and discuss them

Suppressing stress causes more stress. Amid a difficult time such as this, it becomes imperative to discuss how you are feeling with your friends and family. Technology has enabled communication through great distances. It is recommended to acknowledge your feelings and share them with your friends and family.

 

Stay at home, stay safe. This difficult time shall pass soon.
