Stress knows no age! Here’s how to cope with these challenging times

Feeling stressed or know somebody who's going through a tough time?

It’s a no-brainer that this pandemic has prompted just about everyone to face concerns on health, finance, and happiness.

It’s completely understandable to feel uneasy at this time especially when the situation doesn’t allow social, physical interactions that are known to boost moods and ease anxieties.

If you can relate to this or have friends and family members who do, you might want to check out quick tips on how you can pull through these tough times.

Go on a digital detox

We know using social media can be addicting!

Unfortunately, research has shown time and again that social media can leave a negative effect on one’s well-being.

Let go of FOMO (fear of missing out) and try to limit device time.

By doing so, you also get to rest well. Two hours before bedtime, relax with a good book, listen to some music, or write in a journal instead.

Exercise preventive self-care

Managing stress and anxiety is greatly helped by building better habits.

If you want to start an exercise routine or eat healthier, it’s never too late to begin!

There are many resources available, such as our very own The Canvas of You, which has workout videos, mindfulness activities, and articles on healthy eats.

Go easy on yourself

The work from home arrangement has blurred the lines between living and working within the confines of home.

Studies have shown that remote workers are putting on more hours and feeling more anxious as the days go by.

Don’t let it get to you. Keep to a routine and focus. Clock out and take breaks. Dress up to boost morale and get you on the right mindset.

Talk it out

Welcome discussions about mental health.

Remember: it’s okay to not be okay. Acknowledge and talk about your feelings.

If needed, reach out to your healthcare professional or coach for some guidance.

Caring for your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Choose to live a healthier, longer, and better life! It starts with you!
