Focus on what you can control

#MentalHealthMonday⁠⁠How are you doing today? ⁠⁠I'm right there with you, friends. This is unlike anything we've faced before, and it's hard.⁠⁠How we react to the pandemic is essential to our mental health. Right now, what seems to be helping me the most is when I focus on what I can control, but I have to constantly remind myself to do that!⁠⁠Some examples of what you can control include: how much time you spend absorbing the news, social distancing, good hand-washing, boosting your immune system, staying healthy with exercise and nutrition, and connecting with people so you don't feel as isolated. ⁠⁠When you focus on what you CAN do instead of what you can’t, it’ll help lessen some of the anxiety this unprecedented situation is bringing with it. ⁠⁠I definitely had WAY TOO MUCH news intake the last two weeks, and could feel it stressing me out and making my anxiety soar. This weekend, I tried to only check pandemic updates 1-2 times a day, and it helped so much. ⁠⁠Please note: If you need extra support right now, my partner, @mentalhealthamerica has a Crisis Text Line with Crisis Counselors ready to help you cope. Text MHA to 741741. ⁠ ⁠⁠MHA also has a new website with lots of resources and information to help during the pandemic. Just click on the link in my bio and go to the "Mental Health America COVID-19 Support" button.⁠⁠Take good care. xx⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠#ichoosebeauty #covid19news #covid19usa #coronaviruspandemic #coronaviruschallenge #coronapandemic #pandemic2020 #anxietysupport #anxietymanagement #anxietyisreal #lookforthelight #healingjourney #healingtools #healingyourself #healingfromwithin #healingpower #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthhelp #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthcare #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealthcommunity #mentalwellness #mentalhealthishealth⁠
