Engage in physical activity, be it exercising, dancing or cycling, do any activity that you like. Physical activity improves blood circulation in the body and is known to significantly decrease stress and tension thereby making you feel rejuvenated and happy.

Tell yourself that you are not alone. The whole world is experiencing the pandemic, and people are experiencing the same feelings as you. Know that we are all in this together, and this phase too shall pass.

Connect and talk to people as much as you can. Even if you don’t feel like engaging in small talk, make effort to stay connected and be social. This will not only help you distract yourself but will also make you feel less lonely.
