We have been at home for weeks. With the same people, doing the same things, not sure when life will return to normal. We are sure you feel as though you might go crazy being at home all day, every day. Here are some things you can do to help prevent yourself from getting cabin fever.
1. Take a walk, or two! Getting out of the house and breathing in some fresh air, can really do some good. Get a change of scenery. Walk around your neighborhood, or even drive to a nearby park that has trails. This is great for mental clarity, breaking up your day, and getting in some exercise. There are so many benefits to getting out of your house a few times a day, and taking in the sunshine. This can also be really great quality time if you choose to take a walk with your family.
2. Change up your office space. If you are working from home, chances are you have set up a little office space for yourself somewhere. This is great! However, it might help you to change up the scenery every now and then. Work from your front porch in the morning, then maybe move to your kitchen table after lunch, and finish up your day with working from the backyard. Changing up your workspace will help you to feel less trapped in one area of the home for days on end. Are you having trouble with productivity while working from home? Check out our tips for this!
3. Go for a drive. Getting out of the house and going for a drive for 30 minutes or so is extremely helpful! Doing this actually allows you to leave the house, even if you are just driving to site see (from your car), the neighboring town. If you have kids, it might be fun to drive them to their friends’ houses, honk the horn, and wave to them from the car. This can be a fun event for the kids too and will get you all out of the house in a safe manner.
Staying safe and healthy during this time is the number one priority. However, check-in on yourself to make sure you are doing okay mentally. If you feel you need extra help than these tips, create an account on Intima Health, and start seeing a health professional today!
