Here are a few COPING STRATEGIES  
•    ROUTINE:   Structure your day. Create a “to do list” which is achievable.
•    STRESS MANAGEMENT:  Stress is unavoidable, However being aware of your triggers and implementing adequate coping strategies is essential for your mental health.
•    SELF CARE:  Make sure you have enough sleep (7-9hrs a night) . Sleep helps with keeping serotonin levels at bay. Exercise daily and avoid unhealthy foods. Don’t forget to indulge in some “Me Time".
•    CONTACT :  During this time we are encouraged to maintain physical distancing but this does not mean that we have to stay away from our social contacts.We can still keep in touch by using virtual communication. Maintaining contact with loved ones is healthy for our mental state.
•    LIMIT MEDIA INTAKE : Stay informed but limit media intake. Ensure that you get information from credible sources.
