Coping With Coronavirus When You Live Alone

Nurture Your Relationships:

Nurturing relationships with family and friends is so important for all of us during COVID-19, especially for those living alone.

Whether you are an introvert, extrovert, or a little bit of both, all humans desire connection.

Even though most of our schedules are pretty flexible right now, finding the time to video chat isn’t always easy.

Video chatting with friends and family is one of those activities that can easily be postponed or forgotten about. 

We are much more likely to go through with events that are written down or scheduled.

Scheduling weekly Zoom calls with your friends and family may feel like an unnecessary step at first. But it can make a huge difference in the overall attendance.

Making New Friends:

Just because we are in quarantine, doesn’t mean you can’t make new friends or re-connect with older ones. 

You can participate in social media groups, join forums, or virtually volunteer in your community. 

Take Care Of Your Body:

Taking care of our body isn’t an all or nothing responsibility.

If you happen to miss a workout one day, there is no need to worry. Everything from our diet to our sleep schedule plays a role in our overall health and wellbeing.

Dive Into a New Hobby:

Exploring a new creative outlet can boost your mental health, increase energy, and prevent boredom.

The actual hobby or activity is completely up to you. If you’re not sure where to start, go ahead and ask yourself what you have always wanted to learn or improve upon.

Maybe you want to learn a new language, read a book a week, or start a blog.

Don’t be afraid to carve out an hour or two a day to explore your hobbies and passions.
