Many of us are in isolation right now. I am here to share my top tips for coping with the isolation.
1) Keep your mind occupied
It is common to focus on the restrictions and develop a negative mindset. You can prevent maladaptive thoughts by engaging in an activity where you learn new skills such as craftwork, practicing sport or learning a language. I have been learning Spanish and increasing my general knowledge about global politics.
I encourage you not to use social media too explicitly; I was spending too much time on social media so I have been restricting use of my phone. I have felt happier and less anxious as a result.
Have a look at the link below for some inspiration.
2) Volunteer / Fundraise/ Be active in your local community
I am here because I have intended to help people overcome difficult situations for a while now, and my passion brought me to mind for life, who knows where yours will take you…
Take a brisk walk, complete a fitness work out, and participate in a sport. Exercise promotes positive energy.
4) Communicate with other people
Get in touch with friends, family and other acquaintances you have and check in with how they are doing. Speaking to friends and family can help reduce loneliness.
5) Listen to the radio or a podcast
You will be amazed at the effect playing the local radio or listening to a good podcast has upon your mood; it enables you to get out of your own headspace whilst also making you feel less alone.
