It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure about everything at this time of adversity. But you can take steps to protect and take care of your mental health. Start with the following:
1. Be realistic with your expectations, don’t expect to be as productive as you once were. If you can be that’s great, but remember – adaptation takes time.
2. Be open about re-learning to manage your stress as previous techniques may not be as effective anymore.
3. Schedule breaks to breathe and have quiet moments throughout the day.
4. Make sure to exercise to help lower your stress levels, improve sleep, and regulate your emotions.
