It’s important to remember that we are not helpless in light of current events. We can always choose our response. This situation can actually bring new opportunities if you can shift you mindset to see them. Here are some options to take care of your mental health at this time:
Are you feeling more relaxed and inspired? You might want to try writing about your feelings and what you are noticing. Or a poem or a song. Perhaps visual self-expression is your thing. Try drawing, painting or creating a collage of a natural scene or whatever comes to mind. Maybe you are inspired to go outside to take photographs or pick up natural materials to make some kind of craft piece. Or perhaps its as simple as starting to work on your garden. You can choose. The sky is the limit and there is no right and wrong. What is important is that this process is helping you get out of your head and feel calmer.
