COVID-19 caused life as we know it to come to a complete and sudden stop. Since then, life hasn’t been the same for anyone. From having to remember to carry a mask with you everywhere you go, to having to get another vaccine, the world has completely changed.
Ways to Maintain Your Mental Health During the Pandemic:
Mental illnesses spiked 30% due to the stress and isolation associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Walk Outside. It is easy to go on a safe, socially distanced walk today either around your neighborhood or around the block. It is very beneficial to change the scenery, especially if you have been stuck in isolation for a long period of time.
Try New Hobbies.What better time to pursue a passion than when you're stuck indoors. Try learning how to finally solve that Rubik's Cube you had to dismantle last time or learn how to play that song that's been stuck in your head.
Find a Good TV Show or Book. There are numerous TV shows and movies available on Netflix. You can always visit Amazon which has tons of books that you can download or have delivered directly to your door.
Start a Business. We know that COVID brought many financial hardships on families around the world. What better time to finally create that Shark Tank worthy product than now?
