  • They have lost their shelters and observing homeless life

You can help the less fortunate people who are living hand to mouth after the arrival of this pandemic. They have lost their sources of income being fired by companies or employers. You will definitely feel relaxed after doing this nice job.

You can also participate to motivate the health workers who are taking care of the people in such a havoc condition and trying to save maximum lives.

Habits are good friends to console your heart and soul. You feel fresh and motivated to do something new for yourself. Isolation does not mean that you do not address your mental health and keep thinking about what you are going through temporarily.

People get tired of being quarantined to their houses for a long time after a life enjoying their freedom before the arrival of covid-19. They feel anxiety and depression and choose the wrong way to deal with it. They start the use of alcohol and drugs to overcome mental health, which is actually hurting the very emotion we are avoiding.

You need to find better positive, nourishing activities versus destructive activities. The consumption of such injurious products may lead you to a high risk of getting an infection at the worst level that cannot be treated quickly.
