Canceled Holidays Affecting Your Mental Health

(WETM)- Many individuals were depending on investing energy with friends and family during the holidays to lift their spirits. Notwithstanding, with the holidays canceled for the current year because of more tight and fundamental New York COVID-19 wellbeing limitations, specialists are anticipating that depression symptoms should decline because of disillusionment, forlornness, vulnerability, and conditions like seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

Dr. Dawn Gonsalves from MVP Health shares her tips on coping with depression during this time. She says, “it’s definitely recommended you get lots of sleep. Try to turn off your electronics before bedtime, give yourself a little time to unwind. Consider limiting your caffeine, and alcohol intake because caffeine can cause anxiety, make you stay up at night, and you don’t get a restful sleep. Also, alcohol can cause people to feel anxious so we recommend you drink more water because when you’re anxious you tend to perspire and you lose that water so it’s good to replenish it. I recommend things like stepping outside, taking a breath of fresh air, yoga, socially distanced walking, listening to lighthearted music, or a TV show. Although we cannot be physically in contact with people who are not in our immediate household, we can certainly call family and friends and also chat live.”

Dr. Gonsalves needs individuals to realize that “you’re not alone.” many individuals are overwhelmed and stressed. On the off chance that you are having considerations of harming yourself, contact your primary care provider, psychological well-being supplier, or call the suicide prevention hotline at 1-800-273-TALK.
