How to Adapt in the Wake of the COVID-19 Crisis

COVID-19 has not only become a major physical health concern across the world and within our nation, but also a mental health concern as well. It has heightened risk factors typically associated with poor mental health, including unemployment and financial insecurity. Additionally, it has taken a toll on important aspects such as social connection, education, access to physical exercise, and more. Blair Wellness Group is here to discuss ways to adapt in the wake of this ongoing crisis. Learn more from our licensed clinical psychologists today. 

Take Advantage of Unemployment Programs 

As the pandemic continues to force people out of their jobs, unemployment practices are being put into place to help ease the burden. To combat the effects of this crisis, be sure to take advantage of unemployment programs when possible. This could mean signing up for state unemployment benefits, as well as getting help with a job search, resume revisions, and anything in between. 

Limit Media Exposure 

While media can be a great way to stay informed, it often does more harm than good, especially in times of crisis. In order to help combat the negative mental health effects brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, our licensed clinical psychologists recommend limiting your media exposure to twice a day so you can still get important news, but you don’t become consumed by it. 

Create New Routines and Continue Practicing Healthy Behaviors 

We are creatures of habit, and when our normal routines get disrupted, we feel off-balance. However, the reality is the pandemic has changed many aspects of our lives and routines, and it’s important that we learn to change with them. In order to adapt, we need to create new routines, while continuing to practice healthy behaviors. Don’t be afraid to make positive changes that make living everyday life easier. 

Reach Out to a Mental Health Professional 

While it can be difficult to admit you’re dealing with mental health issues, finding a resolution is critical. If you’re feeling depressed, anxious, irritable, or just generally down, seeking the help of a licensed clinical psychologist is nothing to be ashamed of. The pandemic has been a challenge for everyone, and mental health issues are extremely common. Our team at Blair Wellness Group is here to help. 

Our team of licensed clinical psychologists are here to provide you with the care you need to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic. Reach out to us to learn more or find care in Beverly Hills today.
