Recommedations from *Psychologists*. 

 

*1*. Isolate yourself from news about the virus. (Everything we need to know, we already know).

 

*2*. Don't look out for death toll. It's not a cricket match to know the latest score. Avoid that.

 

*3*. Don't look for additional information on the Internet, it would weaken your mental state. 

 

*4*.Avoid sending fatalistic messages. Some people don't have the same mental strength as you (Instead of helping, you could activate pathologies such as depression).

 

*5*. If possible, listen to music at home at a pleasant volume. Look for board games to entertain children, tell stories and future plans. 

 

*6*. Maintain discipline in the home by washing your hands, putting up a sign or alarm for everyone in the house.

 

*7*. Your positive mood will help protect your immune system, while negative thoughts have been shown to depress your immune system and make it weak against viruses.

 

*8*. Most importantly, firmly believe that this shall also pass and we will be safe.... !

 

*Stay positive...Stay safe.* 🙏🏻🌹
