       More and more of us are making dramatic changes to our daily lives as countries take steps to limit population movements to reduce the number of coVID-19 infections.
The new realities of working from home, temporary unemployment, homeschooling children, and a lack of physical contact with other family members, friends and colleagues take time to adjust to.Adapting to such lifestyle changes, managing the fear of getting infected and the fear of those around us who are particularly vulnerable, is a challenge for all of us.This can be particularly difficult for people with mental health conditions.
Fortunately, there are many things we can do to take care of our own mental health and help those who may need additional support and care.
Here are some Suggestions that I hope will help you.
Stay informed.We will listen to the opinions and Suggestions of state and local authorities.Follow trusted news channels, such as local and national television and radio stations, and keep up with the latest information from WHO on social media.
Establish a routine.Keep a daily routine as much as possible, or create new ones.
Get up and go to bed at the same time every day.
Maintain personal hygiene.
Eat healthy foods regularly.
Exercise regularly.
Set aside time for work and rest.
Make time for things you enjoy.
Reduce the news supply.Minimize the number of times you watch, read, or listen to news that makes you anxious or painful.If necessary, look for the latest information only once or twice during a specific time of day.
Social contact is important.If mobility is restricted, keep in regular contact with friends and family via phone and online channels.
Alcohol and drug use.Limit your alcohol intake, or don't drink at all.If you haven't had a drink before, don't start drinking.Avoid using alcohol and drugs as a way of coping with fear, anxiety, boredom and social isolation.
        There is no evidence that drinking has any protective effect against viruses or other infections.In fact, on the contrary, harmful use of alcohol increases the risk of infection and leads to worse treatment outcomes.
Also, be aware that alcohol and drug use may cause you to fail to take adequate precautions to protect yourself against infection, such as observing hand hygiene.
Screen time.Watch how much time you spend in front of a screen each day.Make sure to take regular breaks during screen time.
Video games.Although video games can be used as a way to relax, you can't help but spend more time playing them when you are at home for a long time.Be sure to maintain the right balance in your daily life.
Social media.Use social media accounts to promote positive and hopeful stories.Correct misinformation whenever and wherever possible.
Help others.If you can, offer support to people in your community who may need help, such as helping them buy food.
Support health workers.Take the opportunity to thank national health care workers and all those working to respond to the COVID-19 epidemic online or through the community.
Don't discriminate against
Fear is a normal response to uncertainty.But sometimes fear is expressed in ways that hurt others.Remember:
Be good.Don't discriminate against others for fear of coVID-19 transmission.
Don't discriminate against people you think may be carrying the coronavirus.
Don't discriminate against health workers.Health workers deserve our respect and gratitude.
Covid-19 has affected people in many countries. Do not attribute it to any particular group.
