Depression/Anxiety Talk

Work from home is taking a toll on my mental health. Face timing family and friends is just making me feel worse and more isolated. Anyone else dealing with this and have suggestions?

If you are in an area where outside activity is allowed, do at least 30 min in daylight daily. Walk, run, sit on bench and read, just get out. It helps me to see neighbors out, even if I don’t know them, to just wave and give a simple hello. Keep a healthy routine of sleep, meals, showering, exercise. Mindfulness / meditation to calm and help you stay present Read or watch something every day which makes you laugh, like standup or improv on YouTube, humor writers, or comics.
