Mentally healthy through the pandemic

2020 presented us with a challenging year. In a year of home schooling, working from home, masks and press conferences it was year like no other. For me, 2020 was a year of many changes. I moved from Hoorn to Haarlem during the first lockdown. Wonderful! It was also the year that I was introduced to bbb Haarlem.

'Sound familiar? The 'I can't be bothered with anything'mental attitude? That was me!'  

This led to me having no interest in exercise or leaving the house, but I had a huge interest in delicious food. The result? Extra kilo's on the scales.

 

How Corona affects you mentally

bbb arrived at the perfect moment for me. For my study I looked indepth at the mental aspects of Corona. I would like to share with you the lessens I learnt:

  • Exercise is very important! It is a mental outlet and keeps you strong physically. One of the biggest benefits of exercising at bbb is that you can train in the warmth. Your own cabin where you don't have to watch out for the 1,5 metre and don't have to wear a mask. This makes exercising an event without restrictions. Through the positive atmosphere I began to enjoy training again and the daily tasks began to be easier.
  • Pay extra attention to your mind. Be kind to yourself. Exercise or go for a walk in the fresh air. This can help to bring a bit of structure to your day. What really helped me was that you have to reserve a place ahead. This gave me a weekly plan and something to look forward to. And a reservation is something you don't cancel so easily.
  • Be kind to one another. Research has shown that the Corona period can have a huge impact. More stress, anxiety or irritation are common complaints. Anger in the supermarket if someone walks too close to you or isn't wearing a mask or becoming irritated over the smallest things. It helps me if I realise this. I also don't watch the news anymore. It only sends me into a negative spiral.
  • Bring structure to your nutrition. That extra chocolate or cookie in between meals? Very familiar. By planning set times to eat you can give your nutrition more structure. This really helps me to control my snacking.

What I especially valued at bbb was that it was a moment when I had contact with other people. One of the hardest things in this period is the lack of social contact. Thankfully you always receive a warm welcome at bbb and they ask how you are going. So important in this period.

Interested as to how you can improve your mental state during Corona?
