Covid-19

After forcing millions of people to stay inside, the COVID-19 pandemic has raised huge concerns over the mental health and well-being of everyone, everywhere.

While staying on top of our physical health is obviously imperative right now, keeping your mental health in check is also vital, in order to ensure your brain is being consistently stimulated.

If you are looking for ways to do this effectively, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

1 – Read With Caution.

While it may be hard to escape COVID-19 news at the moment, you shouldn’t believe everything you hear. With news outlets writing scary and often misleading headlines, it’s easy for information to spread around the web like wildfire.

Therefore, to control your levels of coronavirus-induced anxiety, try and avoid being constantly reminded about it. Only read and listen to news channels you trust, and keep your brain stimulated using various activities to keep your mind away from the latest updates.

2 – Keep Healthy.

Keeping fit is vital towards safeguarding both your physical and mental health. And, while going to your local gym may be more difficult right now, there are still a number of ways to keep active while stuck at home.

Whether it be an at-home fitness workout DVD, yoga in front of the TV, or simply dusting off your old Wii Fit, exercising will help you feel more energetic and upbeat about how you’re spending your time in lockdown.

3 – Practice Mindfulness.

Having been practised for thousands of years, mindfulness techniques, like meditation, tai chi, CBT and yoga, can help you make sense of what’s real while teaching you how to remain calm during typically stress-inducing scenarios.

From learning how to breathe in the correct manner to compartmentalising your way of thinking, mindfulness teaches you how to become a more resilient person while taking a firmer grip of your own mind.

4 – Try Online Counselling.

If you’re really struggling with self-isolation at the moment and are feeling overwhelmed or trapped by your own thoughts, worries or concerns, online counselling could help you get back on track.

Here at KlearMinds, while we are having to abide by the government’s current restrictions, we are offering an online counselling service to anyone who needs to talk about their issues. Whether you require couples counselling, help getting through a bereavement or a conversation regarding your mental health, our team of therapists are equipped with the expertise to help with a wide range of problems from wherever you are in the UK.
