Mental Health and Covid-19
COVID-19 is a new illness that affects your respiratory system, this illness comes from a type of virus called Coronavirus. The virus has driven millions of people across the globe to isolate or shield themselves from the outside world. But what does this entail for the civilians and how is this affecting you?
Viruses are a large cause of death each year, especially influenza, which is why protecting yourself from COVID-19 is so essential. Maintaining your mental health is also crucial to keeping you protected from the Coronavirus. As odd as that sounds being mentally stable helps you defend yourself from the new virus, why is that? When your mental health is stable you’re more likely to practise self-care which is necessary to keep healthy! Isn’t it just so much easier to have a relaxing bath when you’re feeling elevated?
At TWE we know it can be hard to maintain your mental health so here are a few ways to begin that journey;
Now, you may be thinking ‘Cody! How on earth is this going to help my mental health?’. Well friends, taking your mind away from itself can boost morale (ironic, I know)! But imagine if you actually started to understand that anime you’ve watched 16 times or were able to speak to your Italian friend in their native tongue - It feels so empowering to learn a new language, you’d feel great!
I’d just like to remind you all to wash your hands for 20 seconds after you’ve been outside or touched objects that people outside your household have touched, this way we can work together in keeping everyone safe from the Coronavirus.
Have a good one!

For those who cannot find something to do during this quarantine, finding a new hobby is a great way to start getting busy. Now that you have extra time in your hands, you can choose any hobby you want to do. I suggest that you try out different things, so you can determine which one you like the most and stick with that preferred hobby of yours. Make sure that your hobby is something that brings you joy and passion, so that you can guarantee that you will be able to stick with it. You can also try looking for another hobby, so you can change hobbies whenever you feel like you have spent too much time with the first one you picked.
