6. Stay Connected
Become familiar with Facetime, Messenger, Skype, Zoom there are many different ways for you to stay in contact with the outside world. These methods of keeping in touch are so important when you can't leave the house. It can be very lonely even for the most insular of us, particularly while you're self isolating and even more so now we're in lockdown. No one is exempt from feeling low mood when being stuck at home and there is no shame in that. My friends say I will 'go to ground' and I really disappear, not wanting contact with anyone. But after a few days this can take a grip. I implore anyone to ensure they have at least one person or even a Facebook group that does face to face contact to connect with during this time. Seeing someone else (albeit virtually) and having a conversation is hugely beneficial for self esteem, good mental health and boosting those endorphins with a good laugh hopefully. I've learned to keep topics balanced and make sure I share news, concerns and positive reflections about the day - what you're grateful for is always a good one. There may be times where you need to share difficult thoughts but try to save the last 5-10 minutes for positive exchanges. It may sound contrived but its always good to leave people better than we found them either by boosting them, showing kindness or and sharing your positive thoughts. You might be that person who makes a positive difference to someone's day.
I hope this helps. Stay safe!
