Tips to Stay Mentally Healthy in the Time of Lockdown

Lockdown Affecting Our Mental Health

Humans have often enjoyed far freer life than other creatures on earth and thus are naturally inclined to see a situation of lockdown as some punishable tough time making us feel sad, overwhelmed, anxious, stressed, lonely, bored, confused, and with very few feeling calm. And in tough times like these, gloom, anxiety, depression seem to quietly seep in reducing not just our will to live but also negatively affect our immune system to fight against invisible viruses. Thus, creating a need to make a well being plan for not just ourselves but also for our families.

Tips to Stay Happy, Positive and Immune to Stress Generated by Lockdown and Coronavirus

Maintain a Routine

Follow a routine or make a more balanced constructive one. Try and get up early, sleep on time, and maintain a healthy sleep-wake cycle.

Do Regular Exercises

Exercise daily at home, stretch your body, do Yoga. Exercise helps to keep you fit and release endorphins and serotonin, which is likely to keep one physically healthy and mentally fit.

Socialize

Socialize, interact, talk, laugh, play, and stay connected online with family, friends, relatives, and colleagues as it keeps us happy and takes away loneliness and despair. Share and express what, how, and why you feel and suggest things that can keep us more positive, hopeful, and happy.

Be creative

Try and do all those things that you always wanted to do thinking that someday you will have some time. Engage in some creative activity daily or inculcate a meaningful hobby that you thoroughly enjoy and engross you completely. It could be as simple as singing, dancing, playing puzzles, writing, cooking, baking, etc

Write Emotive Diary

Engage yourself in Emotive diary writing, where before going to bed, you pen down all that made you feel happy. Also, write a gratitude diary where you write all the things that today you are thankful for.

Pray and Meditate

Try to meditate. Take out some time for prayer every day. Prayers instill and fuel hope, keep us calm, positive and remind us of that supernatural power that has, is, and shall always continue to protect us.

Re-innovate

Re-innovate the way you live and work. Continue to learn at least one new thing every day and share it with your family and friends.

Create Happy Times

Engage in at least one fun-filled activity with your family members daily. Play a game and try to be a kid with your kids. Start playing little games like Ludo, Carrom board, Tambola, Snakes and ladders, cards, hide and seek, and whatnot.

Be Resilient

Develop a never give up attitude. Use positive affirmations that tell the world that you are here to stay. More importantly, remember that not everything has been locked down. In fact, the most precious things in the world are still very close to you- be it your kids, family, yourself, some time to pray, laugh, hope and most importantly the choice to be happy. Whenever I really feel low and everything around seems worthless, I always remind myself that no matter what you matter.
