Adapting to the new normal hasn’t been easy for us. We have been coping and adjusting to various changes in our daily life. From the new Work from Home culture, homeschooling to major drifts in almost all the pre-existing trends of humans. In this chaos, good mental health has taken a back seat. According to recent statistics, more than 70% of Indians have fallen prey to stress and anxiety. 

All this while, we have been learning ways to maintain our physical health. But little is said on the impact of all the recent mayhem on mental health. A healthy and stable mind is as important as a healthy body today. Prioritizing the balance of emotional and mental wellbeing in these difficult times is very essential. Following ways can help you refrain from the avalanche of negative thoughts and maintain a good mental health: 

exercise

Managing work, family and social life can often become overwhelming. By establishing a routine, one can filter out the tasks that are really important and focus on them efficiently. With an established routine you can not just take care of the tasks that are important but can also take out spare time for yourself. 

try one hard thing every day

The goal here is to make yourself mentally strong. In your process of adopting a new routine, make sure you add something that you are not comfortable doing usually. It could be a meager thing like maintaining your closet, cooking your own meal, or taking that swimming class you are afraid to go to. By doing this you are automatically training yourself to be mentally strong. 

enough sleep
