Mental Health COVID-19

This isn’t easy.
We know that Ohioans are going through a lot.
The last month has been hard on everyone — whether you’re dealing with the economic fall out of COVID-19, the virus itself, or have been cooped up in your house for more than a month.
We’re all focused on keeping our loved ones physically healthy, but we also need to make sure that we’re all taking care of our mental health, too.
We’re focused on helping Ohioans get through this crisis in any way that we can. Here is a link to the state COVID-19 Resources page. Our team has also pulled together a list of activities that we’ve been trying out to help put our minds at ease.
Check it out below!
Try a new recipe - cooking is a great way to pass the time and it’s never a bad idea to try something new. You could try some of our team’s favorites — a sugar cream pie or anything in an air fryer.
Listen to music - listening to our favorite music always helps us relax. There are plenty of great Ohio musicians if you want to keep it in the state, like John Legend or Dean Martin!
Read a new book - this is an oldie, but a goodie. All of these books are set in Ohio and will help pass the time and keep you in a good place.
Reach out to some old friends - it’s a great time to call, text, Skype, Zoom or just connect with old friends that you haven’t seen since you started hunkering down.
Get outside for a walk, run or stroll (while socially distancing) — exercise is a great way to stay physically and mentally healthy. You could even go for a walk or a hike in one of our amazing state parks.
Do a jigsaw puzzle - it’s always a good time to take a stab at a jigsaw puzzle.
Drop off meals for an elderly relative or neighbor (on their front porch) - this is a great way to make a huge difference for those who are most at-risk for COVID-19.
Check out an online religious service and practice your faith - just because you can’t visit your place of worship doesn’t mean that you can’t continue to embrace your faith.
Learn a new hobby - if you get tired of watching TV or reading, there’s never been a better time to pick up a new hobby or interest.
Take a second for yourself - take deep breaths, stretch and disconnect from the news and social media for a few minutes (or more) every day.
We hope these tips help you stay centered during this crisis. Keep hunkering down — we’ll come through this even stronger than before
