Tip one, but the most difficult. You need to put the phone on a shelf and get distracted
Of course, this is very difficult to do, especially for people who regularly read the news and suffer from FOMO syndrome - fear of missing out, literally "fear that you are missing something." We made cards to deal with this. Promise yourself that after reading these tips, take the phone away at least for a while.
Tip two. Need to take care of your body
Take a deep breath, stretch or meditate. Yes, we regularly hear tips on eating healthy foods, constantly doing sports, sleeping, not smoking cigarettes, and not drinking alcohol. During a pandemic, these tips become several times more relevant. Quarantine is an excellent reason to take care of your body, order delivery (!) Of a sports mat, do simple exercises at home, monitor your diet and try to quit smoking. In addition, after quitting smoking, the lungs recover very quickly.
Tip three. Take time to relax
Everything is simple here - you need to do those things that you love. Know how to play a musical instrument, but forgot about it? It's time to catch up. Drew at school? Why not try again. Or learn Italian, for example. Useful, useful. Any ideas above are bad? Here is a plan from the editorial office of Medusa, how to spend days at home with benefit (and not really straining).
Tip Four. Communicate with loved ones (please, not only about coronavirus)
Call your friends and relatives, discuss other personal issues, a future vacation or a new series. No wonder now almost all have a video connection.
Tip Five. Think of others
Do not redistribute information about the virus without being convinced of its reliability. This will make it easier for everyone.
Tip six. Believe in science
Believe me, the current situation is temporary. Scientists from around the world are developing a vaccine that will help curb the spread of coronavirus. The world has never been so well prepared for a pandemic as it is today.
Children and adolescents are particularly keen on what their parents and others see. Therefore, separate advice for parents.
Talk with the children about the virus (but only once)
Yes, it’s better to discuss it less, but the child needs to explain everything at the level at which he will understand, and share the facts about what is happening. But do not discuss all the news about the virus in the presence of a child. Children may misinterpret what they hear and be afraid of what they do not understand. It’s also worth telling why it is important to wash your hands and not touch your face. Turn it into a game - let the child while washing his hands. will sing the song “Happy Birthday to You” twice.
Explain to the child that he is safe.
Tell the children how you deal with stress yourself. They will learn to deal with you.
Try to keep your usual order at home.
If schools are closed, make a plan for training and additional classes, recreation, a plan for sharing movies. This will help you and your children get distracted.
Be a role model
The easiest way to avoid stress in the family is to show children how to act in a stressful situation. The rules that we wrote about above work here: take breaks, hide the phone, exercise at home, eat well and communicate with loved ones.
