Keeping A Sound Mind During This Quarantine Period

Here are things you can do to take care of your mental health.

Social distancing and frequent handwashing are not the only health guidelines you should keep in mind during these challenging times when everyone is in quarantine. 

Aside from your physical health, your mental health is also crucial to your well-being. With all that's happening, we may not be aware that we also need to manage our mental disposition. The good news is there are practical ways to stay mentally healthy. 

Here are three things you can do to take care of your mental health. 

1. Stick to a daily routine. 

Staying home has become the new norm—for the time being—leaving us with lots of free time and flexibility. But without a routine, daily life can be draining. Those tiny decisions—from what time to get up from bed, what to eat, and what to do today—all add up and cause decision fatigue. 

Fortunately, you can regain control of your life. List down doable daily tasks, set a time for each task, and stick to your schedule. Planning ahead will keep you motivated and lessen your anxiety. 

2. Focus on the facts.

While social media can keep you informed and connected with friends and family, it can also bombard you with distressing news and misinformation.

Focus on trusted sources, such as the World Health Organization and local health authorities. Facts will help you tune out all the rumors and inaccurate news that can negatively affect your well-being. 

What’s more, WHO recommends limiting your news consumption to once or twice a day and instead think and take practical steps to protect yourself and your loved ones. 

3. Do fun activities. 

Now’s your chance to learn a new skill or spend time on your neglected hobbies. Activities like baking, cleaning, or sewing can be good for your well-being. And it’s not hard to see why; nothing is more satisfying than seeing a finished product you made with your own hands. You can also listen to feel-good music or read an uplifting book. Fill your mind with positive thoughts.

When life feels out of control, you can redirect your attention to activities that bring you joy.

More than caring for your own mental health, it’s also important to look out for the well-being of others. Entrego, for its part, has taken steps to ensure the health and safety of its employees through promoting proper handwashing and hygiene, encouraging cashless transactions with its customers, and maintaining a safe distance when transacting with customers.

Entrego also has designated HR personnel to check regularly on both the physical and mental well-being of their employees. 

 

Together, we can get through this!
