3 Tips for Staying Mentally Healthy During this Quarantine

Updated: Sep 3, 2020

Let's be honest this is a strange situation we are currently in.

It might be safe to say that the entire planet has never been on pause like it is right now. Global issues such as wars, depressions, plagues and so on have happened throughout history, but the uniqueness of this situation has not happened to this generation.

On top of that, each person is being effected differently. For some it almost like a vacation, for others it's sheer panic and uncertainty. It depends on your health, finances, where you live, and the type of work you do.

With all these things floating around and none of us really knowing how all of this is going to plan out in coming months, let's put some things in perspective and do what we can to stay healthy during a trying time for all of us.

3 Tips to Stay Mentally Healthy

1- Perspective

It's safe to say that everyone on the entire planet has been effected in some way, shape, or form. For some it's the obvious, health. Let's just put it in it's right perspective.

The global population is roughly 7.8 Billion people. The global number of documented Coronavirus cases is around roughly 290,000 with nearly 12,000 deaths, and 93,000 people have recovered after catching the virus. It's a problem and we should be aware and cautious, as most people around the world are doing, but a massive percentage of the planet will not catch this virus let alone die from it.

Yes, it's a problem, but the big picture shows us that we are handling it well. Panic, fear, and thinking worst case scenario aren't just hurting your own mental health. it's feeding a unnecessary dogmatic mentality in far too many people.
