The COVID-19 vaccine has provided us a light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, but with more months of lockdown still ahead, you might be feeling depressed and lonely. The Doctors share how you can feel better connected and mentally survive the rest of the pandemic.
To boost your mood and take your power back, Dr. Ian Smith shares the things he does when he is in need of a boost -- and they are free and can be done by anyone.
Stay active: He says even if it is just a small amount of exercise or time spent being active, it can release endorphins and help elevate your mood, plus it is good for your overall health and wellbeing - remember this can be something like jogging or cycling, but also walking, gardening, or even doing work around the house.
Do something you love: He says to spend at least 1 hour every day doing something you are passionate about, like an activity that makes you happy or a pastime you can safely enjoy with your loved ones -- he enjoys writing, watching animal shows, and playing sports with his family.
Reach out: Dr. Ian tries to connect with someone each day and let them know how much he loves them and how important they are.
