Are you struggling to keep a healthy daily routine during the COVID-19 crisis? Dr. Nicole El Marj, Clinical Psychologist at AUBMC, shared with our Youth Program ten tips for promoting resilience and surviving the new normal:

  1. It’s important to establish a daily routine and stick to it. Fix your sleep schedule and eat regular meals.
  2. Although it can be tempting to stay in your PJs all day when you’re working from home, how does that affect your mood and energy levels? It’sbest to maintain a morning routine and get dressed, as you would on a typical day.
  3. Schedule breaks throughout the day. It’s not all work or study!
  4. Work out. Physical exercise is important for mental health.
  5. Start a gratitude list: Write down a list of people and things you feel thankful for.
  6. Focus on the present. The future remains uncertain, and we cannot control that uncertainty.
  7. Social distancing does not mean self-isolation. Keep in touch with your friends and family, even if you can’t see them physically. Share your feelings and check in on loved ones.
  8. Self-compassion is just as important as the compassion you give to others. Be kinder to yourself.
  9. Don’t indulge in alcohol, drugs or oversleeping.
  10. It’s ok to ask for help. Seeking help is a courageous step!
