It’s a bummer, but self-isolation is important during a quarantine. We all need to do our part in this situation that we’re all in, and it too shall pass.
However, less interaction with other people may result in stress and depression. After all, even watching tons of shows on Netflix or checking your social media accounts may burn you out during a quarantine.
Anxiety and depression aren’t what you need to experience while cooped up at home. Here are some easy yet efficient ways to protect your mental health during a lockdown:
Accept that You Do Not Feel Good
You need to realize that it is okay to feel bad during a quarantine. It's normal to feel this way. Social interaction is important among humans. In fact, people with weak relationships are 50% more likely to die over the same period of time as compared with those who build and maintain strong and healthy connections.
Fatal, isn't it? But you feeling that way is your body's way of telling you to connect with others. We're wired that way - we need each other.
Understanding that it is normal to feel bad during this time is important to keep your bearings. Acceptance will help you keep calm. And being calm will let you come up with solutions in a healthier, safer, and even productive manner.
Keep on Moving
Isolating yourself in your home may also limit your physical movement. Depending on your circumstances, the lack of space takes a toll on both your physical and mental health.
Also, the actual experience of not being in a gym to workout can be really stressful. It's all part of a routine that you were used to - a sudden change from your norms can jarring on your senses.
Which is why you need to make the most out of what you have during this time. What's stopping you from not moving? You can still stay fit without gym equipment! House-walking is a good way to be mobile while on lockdown - keeping track of your steps is a great way to keep it up.
Also, try implementing exercise routines in your daily tasks. Cleaning your home can be done with some simple workout motions. You'll be doing yourself a favor as well - keeping your home clean does help prevent the spread of diseases!
But more than improving your physical health, committing to these simple workout routines will also help you focus on the better things in life. Why wallow in despair and stress yourself out with news on the disease? Spending your time to keep healthy is a welcome distraction from all the negativity out there. Remember: stay fit to be happy; be happy to stay fit. Works both ways!
Style It Up
What’s stopping you from wearing some amazing threads while in quarantine? Sure enough, you’d want to stay as comfy as possible indoors. But there are some benefits on why you’d want to spice up your look while on lockdown.
First, it’s fun. You should have fun! A positive mindset is needed during this time. Second, it’s a safe and healthy distraction from all the negative news.
Happiness is a choice - and you can get it by simply wearing your favorite clothes!
