  • Pandemic Survival Guide: Tips For Keeping Yourself Mentally Healthy

    Comparing April 2019 to 2020, research published in The Lancet says the prevalence of 'clinically significant' levels of mental distress has risen from 18.9% to 27.3%. According to HuffPost, increases were greatest among 18- to 34-year-olds, women, and people living with young children. To preserve and protect your mental health, start by rethinking your social circles. Avoid critics, naysayers, pot-stirrers, and anyone else who brings you down. Reach out to friends and loved ones who truly lift you up. If you can't stand one more Zoom call, send a card. Stay active in mind and body. Exercise, learn something new, set goals, and structure your day so you have a sense of accomplishment. Finally, try to be grateful for your blessings. And at the same time, don't be afraid to reach out for help from professionals.
