It is important to stay healthy and keep your mental health in mind. It is easy to give up and get comfortable push things out for another day. Small tasks pilling up and get overwhelming where you end up not doing anything at all. Make a list of things that you still need to do daily, clean your apartment or house, tidy up the kitchen, clean out old boxes. On your list make sure you indicate which has a bigger priority and start ticking them off. With a list in hand, you can visually see how things are improving and will help you keep a healthy life. Start a journal, but do not focus on the negative write down what you have learned today, what you have achieved, or just that you have put a smile on someone’s face. Focus on the things that make you happy, if you are not happy at the moment try to think of activities or tasks that makes you happy and change your directions to reach your goal. Make sure you are true to yourself and you know that no matter how big the change if that is going to make you happy then take the leap.

Set yourself a day each week to try something new. Read a book, bake a cake, clean your house. These simple tasks can help you to keep busy in your day at home. Spend an hour or two with no electronics, see where your mind takes you. Take that hour bubble bath for yourself, or just spend some time in the garden. Once a week give someone a call and ask them how they are doing.

These might be things you already knew, already tried. Keep looking for the activity you need, to help you in these times. There are so many solutions out there, just remember you are not alone the person next to you might feel the same way without you knowing. Do not dwell in the negative. Embrace the positive!
