Social distancing does not mean social isolation. Reach out to others and offer support, empathy, reliable information and, if possible, tangible help. Check on your friends, neighbors, and family. Stay connected by phone, texting, email or by technology such as video chat or Zoom group calls. Personal relationships are crucial in maintaining perspective and elevating mood.

Take care of your body. Eating healthy meals, exercise, get at least seven hours of sleep a night, and limit your alcohol consumption. These things can help your immune system. Regular exercise can reduce anxiety.
Take care of your mind. constant searching, scrolling or consumption of Coronavirus news will only make us feel more afraid and powerless. Take breaks from media coverage. Maintaining routines will help keep us positive, balanced and mentally well.
