Tips To Manage Your Mental Health During the Coronavirus Epidemic

These are anxiety-inducing times to say the least.

People might feel the loss of social connectedness, the ability to take part in hobbies or the freedom to have control over activities. Mute keywords on social media if you need to.

Acknowledge the problem - Check in with yourself and acknowledge that you're feeling anxious.

Whilst it is important to keep up to date, too much upsetting media coverage is likely increase worry and agitation.

Charity OCD Action have advised for people to make decisions based on practicality - are you washing your hands to decrease the risk of the virus, or ritualistically to make yourself feel better? Try to avoid scrolling through the endless barrage of stories on social media covering every possible aspect of the crisis.

On March 12, The Indian Express reported that the constant updates about the outbreak have resulted in many doctors in Mumbai getting patients suffering from a combination of anxiety and phobia induced by coronavirus-related information. Just to take the proper precautions.

But parents say supporting kids' mental health also means laying off of homework and assignments - which are already coming in - for a few days as students adjust to rapid change and family stress. Make sure you're looking out for your friends and family (especially older people in your life, they may need a helping hand with tasks such as groceries) and although you may be forced to stay home, don't cut yourself off from the world. For example, if this colleague is anxious about having to continue their full-time job while having to also look after their children, talk about what projects they're now working on and which tasks can either be delegated to another team member or put on hold until the COVID-19 safety measures are lifted.

These workouts are quick, low-maintenance and burn a lot of calories. If you're managing someone who is experiencing this, have a one-to-one conversation where they can voice their concerns about their job or their remote working situation.

Companies like Glo are now offering free trials on their online yoga courses. They also offer various meditation classes.

Not referring to those with the virus as "victims" or "diseased" can help limit the spread of fear, while avoiding watching, reading or listening to news if it causes anxiety is also recommended. The buddy system helps to provide support, monitor stress and reinforce safety procedures. By focusing our attention on the present moment, mindfulness counteracts worrying. You could work through your to-do list or read a book you d been meaning to get to.

If time since then has felt like an anxious blur - stop, take a breath. You can do Facetime, you can do Zoom or Skype. You could come out the other side of this a virtuoso!

Shah, however, cautions that while socialising over the phone, ensure discussions on this topic are kept to a minimum, or not at all. They are "people who have COVID-19", "people who are being treated for COVID-19", "people who are recovering from COVID-19" and after recovering from COVID19 their life will go on. All of this is taking its toll on people s mental health, particularly those already living with conditions like anxiety and OCD.

At this point, those with existing mental health conditions such as anxiety are especially vulnerable.

Seek advice on the phone from your healthcare provider about how you can best look after yourself. While everyone is encouraged not to go out in public or gather in large groups, people are still allowed to go out in nature and take a stroll, a run, or a bike-ride individually. Perhaps order extra just so you're covered.

Health Direct estimates as many as "1 in every 5 Australians - about 4 million people - suffers from a mental illness in a given year, and nearly half the population has suffered a mental disorder at some time in their life".
