If youíve ever doubted that mental health and physical health are closely related, youíre probably not so doubtful anymore!

As we learn about more cases of COVID-19 and all the measures that are being taken all over the world, you may find yourself growing increasingly anxious. Our mental health and physical health are not two separate things.

In addition to the physical prevention measures youíve surely learned by now, there are important things that you can do to support your mental health and ease the anxiety you and your friends and loved ones likely feel.

Stay busy and engaged in the necessary activities of life. Make a conscious effort to be present to your immediate tasks and surroundings. Avoid consuming toxic amounts of information about things over which you have no control. Be physically active, preferably outside, where the sounds and sights of the natural world, and the sunshine, can help put the drama of our human world in a healthier perspective.

Help someone who may feel alone. As immunocompromised and high-risk patients are being advised to stay home as much as possible, some of us may experience feelings of loneliness and isolation. Offer to run an errand for someone who is at higher risk of getting sick. Take this time to call a longtime friend, chat outside with your neighbors, or send a care package.

So, remember to breathe. Focus on what you can control. Take the recommended steps from public health officials. And donít miss this chance to practice active kindness to all.
