We are dealing with tough times right now in the world. With constant new updates in the news about the pandemic, it’s hard not to panic or worry. On social media there is a lot of fear and uncertainty. This pandemic is affecting everyone so I hope you all are safe. I hope you can use these solutions to help ease your uneasy feelings.
Write out your thoughts
This exercise is super simple in helping to clear your mind. All you need is: plain paper and your favorite pen. Now, dump all your thoughts and feelings in this paper. No filters, no judgement. Just pour out all your thoughts.
Limit social media use
This is the best way to stop feeling anxious. Try to only check the news once a day. As well as any social media apps that you use to get news.
Spend at least an hour outside
I take daily walks in the morning and evening 30 minutes each. This has helped my mood greatly. If the weather is not ideal where you live, let in as much sunlight and open the windows to let in fresh air.
Move your body
Find a way to just move your body! Dance, run, walk, yoga flow, or hardcore pilates. Whatever makes you feel good. There are countless YouTube channels for working out.
Here are my favorites: Yoga With Adriene (YouTube), Blogilates (YouTube), Zumba (YouTube), FitOn (app), and Nike training (app).
Reach out to friends
If you have a main squad or a few bros, call them up and video chat. This way you can still be social and in touch with your people. I personally have been feeling a little lonely and yes it’s hard. But let’s remember that we are healthy, safe, and have a beautiful life to look forward to. Many of the things we complain about are (unfortunately) first world problems and not as dramatic as we make them out to be.
I hope you found these tips useful. Anxiety can happen to anyone. Chances are you’ve dealt with anxiety before. Remember, what’s happening today isn’t going to last forever! Let your mind know that this is going to pass and life will resume. Let’s follow the guidelines to stay safe by the CDC and in the future we can tell our grandchildren about The Great Pandemic which we survived!
