Stay connected to people you trust through video chatting, texting, or regular phone calls. Talk about your concerns and how you are feeling.
When you are working/living with others during a crisis, it’s important to check in with yourself to distinguish which emotions are yours versus emotions you have taken on from a customer/friend/neighbor/family member. During times of stress, pay attention to your own needs and feelings.
Keep to your daily routines as much as possible; invent new routines to replace those you can no longer practice. This can include cleaning, daily chores, singing, painting, or other activities.
Learn simple daily physical exercises to perform at home, in quarantine, or isolation to maintain mobility and reduce boredom.
Schedule time for family games, down time, and private time (if possible), and follow your schedule. Make time to unwind.
Keep a growing list of positive experiences — your own or others’ — as well as things you are grateful for. Make joy a priority.
