COVID is sparking anxiety across the globe. The virus has everyone making changes to their daily routines, washing their hands more often, practicing social distancing, and even quarantining themselves by working from home.
All these changes can be overwhelming. Use these simple steps to keep yourself mentally and physically healthy during this time of increased stress due to COVID.
Keep it Simple
Follow a simple plan for your daily activities to help curb anxiety. Remember, comfort is important. Keep your usual morning routine, sit in a comfortable chair while working, and use good posture.
Prepare your meals ahead of time to stay on track with your typical eating habits. Stock up on healthy snacks so you can snack guilt-free!
Set a goal to drink at least eight glasses of water a day. It is one of the best things you can do for your health in general but during this time, it’s even more important.
Take a Walk
Get out of the house – it’s critical to your health. The sun on your skin provides the key nutrients you need to keep your immune system strong. It stimulates your brain and senses, causing you to feel more joy and bliss.
Get Enough Sleep
Get seven to eight hours of sleep. It will not only keep your immune system strong, but it will also improve your attitude and productivity during the day.
