The Uncertainties of 2021
As KALMers may be aware, taking care of mental wellbeing has been a key focus throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The emotional stress experienced by many due to social isolation, activity restrictions, economic loss, and inadequate medical response may lead to unhealthy behaviors and unwillingness to follow public health measures. Our coping strategies in the past, such as socializing with friends and family, are no longer okay to do. Although we are seeing glimmers of hope through stories of success in controlling transmissions in some countries and the vaccine rollout, the journey to normalcy is still full of uncertainties.
Stepping into the second year of the pandemic, we have great hopes that 2021 will be better. At the same time, we feel exhausted by the changes in regulations and having to constantly adapt. Not being able to cope with these uncertainties may further negatively impact mental wellbeing. Given that the foreseeable future is so uncertain, what can we do to make sure our minds and bodies are healthy?
“Men Sana in Copore Sano” (a Sound Mind in a Sound Body)
One of the simplest ways of managing stress is by manipulating our physical body, whether it is through exercise, diet, sleep or relaxation techniques. A common household remedy is to drink teas – known to have all sorts of health benefits, including helping with relaxation. Given that the list of beneficial plants that can be made into various kinds of brews, the combination of teas to boost your overall well being is also endless.
