Our current situation has generated a whole mix of emotions and related physical symptoms: stress, panic, sadness, sleep problems, and short periods of isolation within days. Practicing various self-care methods is just one of the ways we can do to cope with potential emotional and mental issues.

Self-Care Methods to Try for Better Mental Health

1. Drink Water First Thing in the Morning

We often wake up after a night’s sleep dehydrated, which can cause us to feel sluggish the whole day. To start the day in a good mood, drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up.

2. Take Five Minutes to Slow Down Every Day

Self-care doesn’t have to be expensive and fancy. Most of the time, self-care comes in just putting your phone away and sitting with your own thoughts for five minutes. Always remember that it is important to take time to breathe.

3. Move for at Least 30 Minutes a Day

It doesn’t have to be a high-intensity workout. It could be just getting up off your bed or couch to get lunch or to take a stroll in the park. It is as good for your mental health as it is for your physical health. You can take three 10-minute strolls if you can’t do it all at once.

4. Keep Track of Your Progress

Always keep in mind that it is important to recognize our accomplishments at the end of the day. Yes, we may have a lot of items in our to-do list, but no matter how small it is (even just getting up in the morning and surviving the day is accomplishment enough), you deserve a pat on the back.

5. Be Kind to Yourself

We are in a situation where we are faced with uncertainties. This crisis brought a lot of negative impacts on our well-being and with that, always remember to be kind to yourself. We are in a crisis; it’s okay if you’re not productive as the situation is hard enough for everybody.
