TIPS & TRICKS WHEN YOU NEED A MENTAL BREAK

BREATHE AND PRACTICE RELAXATION TECHNIQUES

  • Inhale for five counts, hold for one count, then exhale for 10 counts
    • The slow exhale tricks our brains into relaxing the body
  • Tense a group of muscles as you inhale, relax them as you exhale
  • Work throughout your body in order (example- top to bottom, bottom to top, etc.)

USE GROUNDING ACTIVITIES DURING TIMES TO CALM YOURSELF DURING OF HEIGHTENED ANXIETY OR A PANIC ATTACK

Notice:

  • Five things you can see
  • Four things you can feel
  • Three things you can hear
  • Two things you can smell
  • One thing you can taste

BE PRODUCTIVE- USE ACTIVITY AS A DISTRACTION

  • Do an activity that gives you satisfaction
    • Examples include- cleaning, organize items for donation, learn a craft, read, walk, weed or rake, make a list of people to check in with and then follow through

KEEP ON A SCHEDULE TO HELP FEEL MORE IN CONTROL

  • Schedule activities that are:
    • Solitary, such as reading, crafting, baking, self-care and educational, etc.
    • Social, such as calling loved ones, checking in on social media, etc.
    • Necessary, such as personal hygiene and taking care of your home.
    • Physical, exercise, specifically walking when you can’t do much else
  • Schedule time away from your phone, social media and/or news programs
  • Eat at regular meal times

DISENGAGE WHEN NEEDED

  • Don’t stay on news or social media sites for excessive amounts of time
  • Avoid too much stimulation without adequate rest
  • Take breaks as needed and switch between activities

     

REMEMBER WHAT IS YOURS TO CONTROL

  • Remind yourself of what you are doing to help contain the spread of COVID-19 with positive affirmations such as:
    • “I am staying home, I am washing my hands and keeping an appropriate distance from others.”
    • “I am not putting myself or those around me in danger.”
    • “I am trusting the experts to do their jobs. EVERYONE wants this to be controlled and eradicated soon.”
    • "I do not have to spend time dwelling on what is not mine to control."
