COVID-19 guidelines which talk about social distancing
Social distancing is an important prevention step for Covid-19. And for those living alone, they can either put themselves at risk of catching the infection in case they step out (to beat loneliness), or they can just stay at home and fall in the trap of depression.
In this article, we are going to further talk about a few ways that can help you curb feelings of loneliness as you quarantine alone:
1. Schedule video chats with friends and family: This is the best time to revive your connections with friends, family and everyone else with whom you couldn't connect because of so-called lack of time. It will definitely make you feel less lonely and will be reassuring of love and care from your close ones.
2. Turn off the news: It's all about Covid-19 and the number of people who died and are affected by it. The news can surely be distressing and sometimes it is okay to turn off the news and give yourself a break. Watch an animated movie or any other light-on-the-mind content for a good laugh and some positivity.
3. Look for ways to build friendships: If you have neighbours with who you never spoke beyond greetings, this is the time to bond with them and develop a healthy relationship. After all, they are the ones who can reach out to you first in case you need any help. Refer to Chopra's post above for a better insight.
4. Get creative with your hobbies: Catch up with reading, indulge in gardening, good music or cooking. Your social media feeds are probably filled with posts featuring people indulging in their hobbies. It is an activity that can keep you busy and also relax your mind.
5. Stay active and do not skip exercising: Under no circumstances must you miss or skip exercising. Not just for release of endorphins but also for preventing unnecessary weight gain and other health problems. Regular exercise can also reduce your stress and help you sleep well at night.
Last but not the least, know that you are not alone. We are all in this together! Stay indoors and stay safe!
