Self Care Tips
5-ways to protect your mental health during social distancing.
Isolation feeds anxiety and depression. Have a plan for staying connected to your friends and family via Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp, or other platforms. Now is the time to practice kindness and maintain positivity with others. Remember that everyone has different reactions during a time of crisis. Don’t expect others to view the situation in the same way you are viewing it. Dig deep and work hard to validate others’ experiences.
Make small goals each day to work on projects you wouldn’t normally have time for. Consider taking on a new hobby or reading that book that has been collecting dust on your nightstand.
Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Eat healthy, well balanced meals. Exercise regularly. Get outside. Resist the urge to self-medicate or increase your use of alcohol or other drugs.
Check news only from reliable sources such as the Center for Disease Control or the World Health Organization. Avoid the 24hour news cycle as it can feed fear and lead to rumination and panic.
If you are in need of mental health care or if you feel that you are in crisis. Call the San Diego Access & Crisis line at 1-888-724-7240 or text “courage” to 741741.
