The pandemic has been a difficult time for all.
And while we continue to grapple with the virus, this situation has also been taking a toll on mental health. Recently, Samikssha Batnagar also expressed her concern about people battling anxiety in these trying times and shared some tips to maintain mental peace in such trying times.
The actress stated, “The impact that this outbreak is having on our lives may cause us to feel anxious, stressed, worried, sad, bored, lonely or frustrated. There are simple things we can do to help take care of our mental health and wellbeing during times of uncertainty. Doing so will help us think clearly and make sure we can look after ourselves and those we care about.”
She also emphasised that one should remember that they aren’t alone. She added, “Relax your body often by doing things that work for you, take deep breaths, stretch, meditate, wash your face and hands, or engage in pleasurable hobbies. Use time off to relax, eat a good meal, read, listen to music, take a bath, or talk to the family. Talk about your feelings to loved ones and friends often.” She also advised everyone to stay informed about the facts and stated, “Stay informed of the current situation, get the facts right, limit your media consumption to an extent. Watching too much news, reading too many articles, and consuming too much content can be overwhelming. Always make sure you seek sites that give factual information about what you can do to stay healthy, such as the CDC and WHO”.
