How to take care of your mental health during lockdown?

Mental health is very important and especially during the lockdown times.You must be wondering what is new today with this health blog. Well, we have got you covered with health, HIIT, Intermittent fasting and also nutrition-related facts. But we thought let us also think about mental health which is of more concern when it comes to times like today. We hope the world finds a cure for all its problems. If not all, the Corona Virus vaccine will suffice for now. I hope you all are doing good. Staying safe and indoors.

There have been many goals which we all have set on the first day of our homestay. Self-isolation gave us a lot of time to retrospect, to introspect, to reflect on our thoughts, to identify our weaknesses and to work on our flaws and most importantly to develop, I say, Develop the relationship with our near and dear ones. If you have not been serious about all this, time is flying you better be now. Still, some more days to seize your opportunity to spend time with one of the most important people in your life and that is you. Watch your thoughts. Work on your emotions. Anxiety bouts and depression which is common when you are confined to boundaries.

But as they say, most of the beautiful work has been done in the solidarity conditions. These few days will define your relationship with yourself. You may eat, overeat or binge. You may read a book or watch a movie. You may sleep, rest or oversleep. Hours of internet scrolling, or value addition to your life. It is all up to you. You may pray for the wellbeing of humanity and that thing you may overdo.

15 days over of this social distancing and time to check how far have we come?
Have we ticked all our goals in the ‘to-do’ list which We have set on day1. Also it is important to know whether we have a list or not. No planning is a shortcut to failure. If you haven’t planned then you should give conscious thought to plan and further take time to execute it on T.

It is time to reassess whether we have achieved our goals. Are we improving on our process of work? Is there a need to change the strategy now? Are we at bliss? Are we over joyed for nothing and expressing it too much? And we worrying too much? Are we anxious and cranky all the time? Or are we poised and patient.

By keeping a journal, you may always make a note of emotions and feelings you undergo. Especially lockdown period demands such activity called journals for future reference by the millenial generation.

Above all, you are always a good workout away from your good mood. Never give up on your exercise. Keep moving.stay indoors. Stay safe!

    Keeping a journal works in many circumstances. I’ve never kept one every day, but certainly they are a relief when times are tough! Thanks for the reminder.

      Yes Journals are very useful. We have a big story to tell our grandsons about lockdown. Our journals would serve as a reference for them, if in case they encounter such a calamity . Which I nwver wish and hope for
