What should I do to keep my spirit up while in self-quarantine?
Being under quarantine can be frightening. The following should be done to reduce anxiety -- Talk to the other members of the family about the COVID-19. Understanding the disease will reduce anxiety. -- Reassure young children using age-appropriate language. -- Think about how you have coped with difficult situations in the past and reassure yourself that you will cope with this situation too. Remember that quarantine won’t last for long. -- Keep in touch with family members and friends via telephone, email or social media. -- Stock plenty of materials to read to keep your mind occupied. -- Exercise regularly from your quarantine area. -- Ensure that you drink at least 8 glasses of water every day to keep hydrated. -- Eat all your meals in a timely manner.
