Mind Control: Managing Your Mental Health During COVID-19


Made by a professor at the University of Toronto

For me, I put on podcasts or audiobooks on light topics like the brain or history and work out by doing air squats, push ups, off my knees if im tired, so, it's kind of like going some place mentally, and getting a light workout. Sometimes the best are dynamic stretches, like the cat stretch or side stretches back and forth, whatever feels good do it.

You'll have the most success if you tackle issue of coping mechanisms and work on developing useful strategies to replace the destructive strategies. If you can't get access to a competent therapist, see what you can find online. Google 'coping strategies for anxiety', 'mindfulness meditation', 'cognitive behavioral therapy', etc. The following link is covid related, but the principles apply to any issue really.

Hello friends, I know that the pandemic and the changes that have occurred as a result of it may be stressful and overwhelming. I just found out that one of my professors is offering a free course on Coursera on managing mental health in relation to the COVID19 outbreak. Signing up is completely free (no credit cards required), and you get access to everything as soon as you enroll. I hope this may be of help to some of your or others you may know (:

^(just a little disclaimer that I am in no way associated with Coursera or the prof but I thought that this may be of help to some. Prof. Joordens' rambling tend to be very chill and fun so it's not super intensive or anything. I hope this helps.)

I would most certainly appreciate it, especially if it had resources for a spectrum of mental health needs and demographics. A lot of the resources I've seen have been geared more towards helping youth or the elderly, which is wonderful, but there's many working age adults grappling with new and overwhelming challenges.

I took a free class on Coursera that was beneficial: https://www.coursera.org/learn/manage-health-covid-19

Someone did an AMA on an email-based course regarding mental health and COVID.

Encourage her to get into a routine. It will help with her sleep, but it may also provide some comfort and stability. I'm a childcare worker and we always say that 'kids crave routine', but it's not actually something we grow out of.

It sucks that you are feeling this way, and it sucks that your mom is feeling this way. I wish the best of health and luck to your family.
