Chad's top-10 suggestions during COVID-19:

  1. Stay informed, but not obsessed.  Take news and social media timeouts daily.  

  2. Practice relaxation:  Deep breathing, yoga, meditation are all free and easily accessible on YouTube or on apps such as Headspace and Calm.

  3. Social isolation does not mean emotional isolation.  Call, Facetime, or Skype your friends and family more often than you would normally.  

  4. If you have children, try to keeps routines as normal as possible, model non-anxious behavior, and reassure them with language they understand.

  5. Remind yourself that this will eventually pass and things will go back to normal.  Try not to predict the future negatively because there is almost zero chance you will be right.

  6. Stay busy doing something productive.  It's hard to have negative thoughts when our minds are busy doing productive things.

  7. Exercise and eat right because it is just as important for you mind as your body.  It is also important to not use alcohol and other mind altering substances to cope with stress.

  8. Follow the advice of your doctor or Center for Disease Control (CDC) because they are the best source of information.  Don't be afraid to call your doctor or set up a remote visit.

  9. Don't stop your mental health treatments.  Keep taking and refilling your medications.  Keep going to therapy even if it is a remote visit.  It is likely more important now with the stress and anxiety of COVID.

  10. Call me at MesabaCare if you have any questions about mental health, stress, anxiety or coping.  Consider signing-up for teletherapy at MesabaCare on this website.
