The Wellington Dufferin Guelph Health Unit is urging people to take care of their mental health during the COVID-19 crisis.
There's a lot of anxiety among people trying to steer clear of any social interactions.
Public health officials say there's a few things you can do to ease your worry:
- Stay connected and maintain your social networks using technology. Video chat or just pick up the phone and connect with someone to see how they're doing.
- Follow your usual routine as much as possible. Keep up with your normal sleep routine, eat regular meals, and plan out daily tasks.
- Try to stay active. Get off the couch and start some spring cleaning around the house or do a YouTube video workout.
- Get some fresh air and sunlight. Open the windows, go out for a walk or step out into the backyard.
- Find ways to stay busy like spring cleaning, keep your mind stimulated with a game or puzzle, or get creative with a hobby.
