People all across the world are suffering from this. Many suggested precautions for the Covid-19 virus, like social-distancing, can make us feel isolated and alone. Adults, and children, may feel the stress and anxiety this virus is placing on us; however, our mental health is the number one priority.
Here are a couple of ideas to better your mental health.
Are you listening to your body? Deep down, we know what we need. Our bodies are our best friends that give us the clues and resources we need to heal ourselves, mentally and physically. Every living thing has a natural intelligence that knows how to care for itself. Look at nature when a plant is injured intuitively the plant knows what it needs to survive and get better, so does the human body. Understand and listen to your body. Once we can connect with our bodies, we can put the pieces together for balanced mental and emotional health.
Do you know what works for you? Find out what makes you happy, what nourishes you, what makes you feel good, releases that positive energy. There is no right or wrong. Everyone is different and may have different approaches and outlooks on life. Find what makes you happy and, the pieces of the puzzle will start filling in one by one until it is complete.
Health and wellness are fundamental for the human body and mind. Some may already have it, and others are looking for it. Just remember, it may take time. We are all on a journey for happiness and, connecting to your natural intelligence will lead you to the finish line.
