During this period of uncertainty, when the current situation is affecting the whole world in many different ways it’s very important for all of us to act as responsible citizens and not lose our composure. But during this kind of situation it’s getting easier for people to lose their calm specially people having anxiety,depression or other health problems.
Today I am going to suggest some measures which can help you to maintain your composure and state of mind during this difficult period. First,take a deep breath in and slowly out. Relax and keep calm.
1.Stay In Touch With Your Friends & Family
Remember you are not the only one who is following social-distancing or home-stay.Your friends and family are following too. There is nothing better than staying away from screens and spending quality-time with your family (you can play board games,cultivate some hobby together or even just have a deep conversation about life).Technology is a blessing.If your friends and family are away from you then you can video chat or use Skype to stay connected with them.
2.Start Limiting Your Time On Social Media.
Social Media is actually a great source of fake information and during these times it’s very important for you to avoid all kinds of negativity.Search some other kind of entertainment(maybe developing some kind of hobby or something) but start limiting your time on social media. Stay updated on what’s going around the globe through verified news but not through social media.
3.Take Care Of Yourself.
Practicing self-care is very important specially if you want to avoid any kind of negativity creeping into your mind. Learn to do yoga or any kind of exercise which can keep you both mentally and physically fit. Find some time to pamper yourself with a hot-bath or lotion etc. Remember to eat right and healthy as your safety is most important at this time.
4.Get Constructive & Creative.
If you have a lot of spare-time now-a-days,don’t be lazy to try and cultivate a new hobby or practice any existing one.Do something constructive and creative during your home-stay. This will not only keep you away from overthinking and negativity but also will help you pass your time in a good and happier way.
5. Drink Plenty Of Water & Have Proper Sleep.
This is something very necessary to follow in our day-to-day life.The basic step to maintain your composure and not lose your temper is to drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated all day long and have a proper good-night sleep.An average human being should atleast sleep for 7 to 8 hrs a day and drink atleast 2.5l to 3.5l.
These are just a few ways you can practice to make yourself feel calmer during this period of uncertainty. Remember to practice social-distancing and stay at home for the safety of your friends and family. Stay safe, stay happy.
