COVID MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCE:
Covid-19 and the consequent lockdowns it has forced us all into can create havoc in our lives. Even though its an issue we have been dealing with for the past year, some problems might still remain and we might need help to cope with those.
These are just a few things that can be implemented so that we can be at our best during the lockdown. But do not hesitate to reach out to us if you feel like you need professional help. You can do so here.
Take Care Of Yourself: The uncertainty of the Pandemic has created problems for us that we’ve ever faced before. To make things more difficult, our social circles may not be physically accessible. In such a scenario, using strategies of self-help can aid us in making better use of the resources available at our disposal.
Conflicts During Lockdown: Working from home, sharing space with family/friends with no escape, and having no choice in the matter is a recipe for frustration and misdirected anger. The fear for one’s own health and safety combined with the uncertainty of the future often acts as fuel to the fire. Feelings like fear, stress, frustration, and helplessness float around catalysing interpersonal conflict.
Are You Doom-Scrolling? In 2020, I caught on to a new habit. My phone became my newspaper…and for valid reasons. I believed that TV news gave me either insufficient or inaccurate information about what’s going on. So I took things into my own hands. I took to social media – Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or maybe even doing a quick Google Search.
