Here are some resources, tips, and fun activities from Hiram College to help you maintain your physical and emotional well-being in the time of COVID-19.
Take care of your yourself. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, and get plenty of sleep. Be sure to keep with a consistent schedule when it comes to bedtimes, meals and exercise.
Stay connected with others. Keep in close contact with your family and friends outside your home through technology, including calls, texts, and FaceTime.
Stay informed, but not too informed. Absorb enough news to stay informed, but don’t overdo it with constant updates that feed into fear and anxiety.
Take breaks. Make time to unwind and remind yourself that strong feelings will fade. Try taking in deep breaths. Try to do activities you usually enjoy.
Direct energy toward hobbies and creative outlets. Engage in activities or distractions that take your mind off everyday stressors.
