Mental health: ways to cope with covid-19

Welcome back to my blog guys! This post is dedicated to people who are struggling with their mental health. How are you holding up? Are you checking in on your friends and loved ones? This is an uncertain time, it is important that we stay motivated and take care of each other. We might be worrying about what the next couple of months will look like but I’m here to assure you that everything will work itself out. It doesn’t rain every day, the sun will shine again. There are things that I have been doing to keep my mental health in check such as staying busy, reading, and exercising.

STAY BUSY: This is the time to stay focus and do things that you have kept on the back burner for months or even years because of ‘Life.’ For me I have always wanted to become an entrepreneur and start a lifestyle blog. My excuses were: not enough time, money, and the fear of not being successful. COVID-19 has given me optimism and destroyed my procrastination capabilities. Now I have nothing but time to create and live in my purpose.

READING: Reading has been a remarkable outlet to reduce stress. I have found myself getting anxious about the near future. Let’s face it, most of us are worrying about our financial health along with other things. A good read for me right now is the “Secrets of Six-figure Women: Surprising Strategies to Up Your Earnings and Change Your Life” by Barbara Stanny. Reading can be a healthy getaway from everyday stressors in our lives. By simply opening a book, you allow your mind to drift away in another world which ultimately is an escape from your daily stressors.

EXERCISE: I have always felt better after a good sweat. Staying active not only improve your physique it also keeps your brain healthy. Exercise can have a positive impact on depression and anxiety. It also relieves stress, improves brain fog, helps you sleep better and improves your mood.

If you are someone or knows someone who is struggling mentally around this time, I urge you to motivate them to implement these things in their daily schedules. Life will throw us numerous curve balls but it is important to remain strong and undefeated. Now is not the time to be hard on yourself but rather take the time to build a better tomorrow for you and your family.

Thank you guys for reading and ill see you in the next post.

    I have been doing these activities and they have helped me so much. Another thing that I’ve been doing is journaling my experiences and thought.
