Three steps to maintain your mental health during the lockdown

Three steps to maintain your mental health during the lockdown

What are those three steps to maintain your mental health during a lockdown? We were thinking about this whole day.
After all, we have all the time in the world today. If we are unable to transform ourselves in the lockdown stage of solidarity confinement then we should certainly doubt our self-discipline. What excuses we have now for something we have been procrastinating since we are running such hectic schedules. Time is what we have today.
As I always say, time to reflect. Without further delay, here they are 3 steps to increase your inner strength

 Mental Health
  • Silence is golden but how many of us do that?
    Observing a few hours of silence is something which all sages have been practicing in their endeavor to reach the inner self
    Now when we have fewer people around, it is a perfect opportunity to keep quiet and mind our own business. Silence also means calming down your mind, your emotions, and your thought process.
    I hope we all practice this for some time every day. Few minutes to start with will do more good than any harm. At least not a big thing we may not use harsh words or hurtful words to talk.
  • Learning a new thing every day – When we learn our brain is channelized in a different direction. All our senses become active. That one language, that one dance move, that one vocal nuance which we have always put on the back burner given our crazy schedules.
  • Reviving the memories – The more we do this exercise the more we feel good. Sitting with our family and reliving the pleasant time we have had is something that can never be negotiated with anything else. Switching off the internet for a few minutes every day can work a big deal in bringing together the family. Remember the family which eats together stays together.

Small steps lead to big transformations. Hope you all stay safe. And yes, indoors.

Here is how you should tackle your mental health while in lockdown

    Great advice! I’m using this time to reorganize and clean out closets. I’m finding so many memories that I’m reliving when going through boxes of pictures and other items that have been packed away.

    That’s good advice! I will definitely keep it in mind. Especially spending more time in silence.

    I am definitely struggling with this. There is way too much alone time for me. So I decided in my blog that I would take a trip around the world. Well, it’s imaginary, but, so far, it’s been a great adventure!!!

    great post…!!! I worked in the mental health field for 8 years. Loved the work…I miss it. I had to quit working in 2016 due to health issues.

    Love the step of being quiet. I do that daily…just be. Rest my mind and my thoughts.
