Seven tips to manage your mental health and well-being during the COVID-19 outbreak

by Mark Britton 7 April 2020
We're living in extraordinary times—there's no denying that for most people around the world, life is different since the introduction of the coronavirus. These are increasingly stressful times, yet humans have persevered throughout history. It's what we do, how we're designed. Besides our press-on spirit, never before have we been so well-equipped with tools to help us through this challenge. Clinical psychologist Desiree Dickerson shares her professional insight on best ways we can take care of ourselves in her article, "Seven Tips to Manage Your Mental Health and Well-being During the COVID-19 Outbreak." One of Dickerson's tips is to manage expectations. Routines are changing, and while some people might have more time to increase productivity, many others will experience new challenges: "Difficulty concentrating, low motivation and a state of distraction are to be expected," states Dickerson. She cautions to "not underestimate the cognitive and emotional load" that COVID-19 brings. Adapting to a new rhythm—one that includes remote work and fewer real-time connections—will take patience and effort. Read Dickerson's entire article for suggestions on taking care of your mental well-being during this difficult time. We think this is a topic that every person should discuss--please consider sharing this article with organizations, neighbors, friends—everybody could benefit.
