7 Simple Ways to Practice Self-Care During COVID

by Dr. Jen Caudle



Let's face it, everyone is stressed by COVID and self-care couldn't be more important these days. Here are simple ways to reclaim your mind, body, and spirit despite these turbulent times.

1. Take a Vacation

Even though you might not be able to travel because of COVID, it's still important to take a vacation. This is the perfect time to plan a staycation and reconnect with your interests and passions that you never have time to do.


2. Social Distance from the News

Cable news, Facebook, and Twitter getting you down? If so, you're not alone. Avoid this by taking a news break. Avoid news programs or social media to help find peace and calm.



3. Find Your Joy

Do what you love. Read books and magazines you have been meaning to get to, try those new recipes you pinned to your Pinterest boards or reconnect with an old hobby.


4. Journal

Start journaling. Write down your thoughts to stay connected with how you're feeling and in-tune with what's on your mind.


5. Make a Gratitude List

Maybe journaling isn't your thing. If not, that's fine. Get in the habit of writing down a few things you're grateful every day- this can go a long way.




6. Connect with Others

Reach out to people who are good for you and who love you. Don't isolate yourself.


7. Consider Therapy

Talk to a therapist. With COVID, many therapists are seeing patients over Zoom or Facetime so scheduling therapy sessions is easier than ever.


I hope this is helpful!
