Tips to avoid the effects of the quarantine
Being in quarantine does not entail boredom and inactivity, becoming introvert or antisocial. We spoke with a mental health professional who underlined the importance of self-care during the quarantine and shared tips for safeguarding our mental health, helping us see the advantages, from which individuals can benefit.
Spending quality time with yourself is a privilege which many have been deprived of due to their busy daily routines, namely: working late hours, carrying out obligations, etc.. Coronavirus and measures against its further spreading among people, seem to have led us in an unavoidable contemplation; which might prove to be advantageous. Working out at home, working from home and generally practising inherent talents, such as drawing, dancing, playing musical instruments to mention but a few, constitute a healthy mentality and perhaps guarantee insight into ourselves.
Additionally, social media and the internet thankfully allow us to keep in contact with our loved ones; therefore, we do not have to feel lonely. Despite any drawback and instead of focusing on them, availing ourselves of such once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, should be our main goal.
Better days will come, until then, enjoy!
