Depression and COVID-19

Postby CamGirl » Mon Dec 14, 2020 6:36 am

COVID-19 has surely made a lot of impact on our lives. Some developed depression, while some who already have it worsened due to the lockdowns. How are you guys affected by it? How are you dealing with everything that has been going on?

This can surely mess up with our heads. Like seeing the same thing every day, doing the same thing. It's smart to have a calendar or planner for the whole month to make sure we get to do something different.

I didn't fear Covid-19 but sometimes the people who are more self-protective, naturally get prone to infections! Combatting Covid-19, work from home, and anti-social life has gotten me so mad, frustrated, and out of mind. I'm in that phase of life where I have the least support but still, I'm so strong and combatting every situation. Here is what I want to share with all of you. Something that would help you.
- Don't let negativity rule your mind.
- Keep yourself engage in the activities you love to do
- Maintain your diet
- Go for a walk every day
- Listen to music that soothes your mind
(I've got a list of musicians who thinks music can heal your mind https://mangoclinic.com/top-60-musician ... heal-mind/ )
- Get yourself a pet for the best companionship
- Whenever depress, write your feelings out
- Meditate
- Wear your mask
I'm so sure by making these small changes you can combat your anxiety and depression other than pharmacological treatment. I think when you're stressed you should relocate. Since Covid-19 ain't letting us do that so it's better to mask-up and go for a walk, get some fresh air, Headphones on and enjoy!

Merry Christmas! <3


Merry Christmas! Thanks for the link. I agree, music is really great for the soul. We need it especially in this time of solitude.

Yes. Stress really messes with our heads then our health. Sometimes, I wonder, maybe we have put too much pressure into our lifestyle and this is nature telling us to slow down.

Exactly. Now, we are told to stay home which, come to think of it, is a blessing. We get to spend time with our loved ones and isn't that the most important thing in life, our family.
