Tips on Staying Healthy during COVID-19
It is normal to feel sad, stressed, confused, scared or angry during the pandemic. Limit the amount of news you listen too. Talk to someone about your feelings—family, friends, neighbours or call one of the numbers listed above.
Keep to a regular schedule as much as possible. Start each day with a few things that you would like to do. Try to stay active and get as much fresh air as you can. Tap into your creative side. These are mood boosters.
