According to a recent article I read written by a therapist, isolation not only zaps our energy but can also lead to depression. The recent pandemic and quarantine has certainly taught us that.
- Keep a good schedule every day, waking up at the same time, eating healthy meals, and getting plenty of exercise. Prayer or meditation can help as well.
- Contact friends and family by social media or phone. It’s a good chance to catch up and the interaction will lessen your feelings of separation.
This is all easier said than done. But, by helping yourself, you can help others too.
