You can also do things like looking at a quote, or watching a quick video, or something that makes you laugh and makes you happy that will just set you right for the day.

That could literally just be going on a walk every day, like 10-minute walk. Because by getting the fresh air, it would help you to stop thinking about things that are bothering you or problems that are constantly on your head.
SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP
I know this may sound crazy but seeking professional help could be the best way to deal with mental health issues. It’s venting to someone you don’t even know. And even though it may feel strange when you’re speaking to someone unknown to you.
This person could be a therapist, a counselor, or a psychologist. These people can really help in any way that you need.
CHECKING IN WITH FRIENDS
Checking in on your friends is also an efficient way to help deal with your mental health and keep positive. You could just message them, call them, facetime… anything like that can keep someone’s mindset positive.
WRITING THINGS DOWN
One way to cope with mental health issues is through writing everything down.
Having a diary or journal just to keep your emotions and feelings intact. You may also plan your day from beginning till end with fun activities to do for yourself as well.
But also, write down your emotions, your trigger points to what might make you feel anxious, and keep it in a safe place away from everybody else.
SPEAKING WITH FAMILY
What could also help you stay motivated during lockdown is talking to your family who are not living with you.
It would also keep your friendship and relationship with them stronger and make you feel close to them as if you were not away from them.
TALKING TO GOD
It’s really important to keep up-to-date with your spiritual well-being. What will help you to reflect on your day or how your mental health is throughout the lockdown would be writing down key notes and reflections of your week, and talking to God.
