With the quarantine still in place, the screen time of using any devices such as smartphones, video game consoles, and computers has greatly increased. We use these devices often to find entertainment, but are you sure you still have a stable connection to the real world?
In our current state of the world where social distancing is required, take time to do what makes you happy and satisfied. Mental health is important to take care of. It could be drawing a simple sketch of nature, reading a book you haven’t had the time to read, or even learning a different language; try something new! Anything goes as long as you feel you have accomplished anything throughout the day.
Connection With Friends and Relatives
According to an article by RescueTime in 2019, an average person spends 3 hours and 15 minutes on their phones. Now that it is currently the time of quarantine, the numbers probably increased. Don’t just spend time using your phones browsing social media applications or watching videos on the internet. Call your friends or relatives if you have the time. Staying in touch every now and then can greatly help your state of being during this crisis. Not only that, but reconnecting with old friends will help both of you brighten your day.
Connection With Faith
In this time of quarantine, despair can easily and slowly creep up. You will think that everything that can go wrong would go wrong. Keeping your hopes up by strengthening your faith during this predicament can tremendously help one’s thinking. Seek some guidance by reading chapters from religious books; call someone who is willing to enlighten you in times of despair.
Connection with Family
Most importantly, time with family is very important to us. Now that there are limitations in going out. Cherish every moment that you have with your family even if you’re only at home. Strengthen your bonds within each other to unite as a group. Because in times of a pandemic like this, family members can make you feel at ease and comfortable at home.
