Simple Tips From Dr. Phil During Uncertain Times

If you’re like myself and my family, we are living moment to moment during this COVID-19 pandemic.    It’s important that we stay well physically, psychologically and emotionally as we adhere to the social distancing.

Here are some simple strategies:

TALK TO YOUR LOVED ONES:    The research illustrates that positive relationships are associated with much better outcomes.

UNPLUG:   All of this constant news and media coverage around the COVID-19 pandemic can create anxiety and fear.  Do your best to limit the time you watch the news on TV, social media and radio.

PRIORITIZE SLEEP:  Try and set up your routine each night that can help get your mind in gear for a restful night.

SWEAT IT OUT:  If have not already, try an at home workout such as resistance training with your body weight, cardiovascular exercise, and/or calming stretches.  A favorite program we use at home is the whole beachbody workout series and for jumping/bouncing, check out cellercise.com.  Walking outside is always a great way to get your exercise in too!

REMEMBER TO HAVE YOUR MINDFUL MOMENTS: It’s important to set some time aside each day to simply focus on your breathing (at least 5 minutes)  I’ve been enjoying a great Free 21 day Meditation Series from Oprah and Deepak Chopra (they’ve gone complimentary to help us all out during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis).

Feel Better – Function Better,
