All over the world, governments have implemented lockdowns, restricting all non-essential travel, closing all the places where people can gather.
Lockdown isolation can lead to mental stress, and experts suggest various ways to safeguard your emotional and mental wellbeing, during this period of being alone.
Whatever the limits and constraints, try to get some nature exposure and exercise, even in a garden, terrace or balcony. You can also take care of the houseplants or open the windows to let fresh air in the room.
Keep bathing and brushing your teeth as before, and go to bed at healthy times to get adequate sleep. Try doing something else apart from eating, sleeping and watching Netflix. Any hobby or activity helps.
Avoid sitting in front of screens all day: Long periods of screen gazing, whether it’s a TV, PC or a smartphone, can disrupt your sleep and deteriorate your overall wellbeing. This is due to the blue light that most devices emit.
Try getting into arts and crafts, listening to podcasts, knitting, meditation, cooking new stuff, writing, gardening, or reading.
