Taking care of your mental health during a global pandemic by Khanyisa Mabala

The lockdown has caused a lot of anxiety however, has allowed me to seek a lot of self- introspection. I am an individual that thrives on controlled environments and the situation has left me frustrated.

Losing loved ones during this time has also been the hardest and I am often left confused and almost hopeless. While many have turned to meditation/ yoga/ pilates and the like, I’m teaching myself to take it one step at a time. To revel in my emotions and confront them as they come along. I do mediate in the mornings and in the afternoons I’ve opted for light walks.

I am learning to not put so much pressure on myself and to try not dwell on the aspects I cannot change. I am constantly surrounded by family, of which are going through the same situation. I find solace in confiding in them and moreover relating with them. Work is also keeping me busy, that has not calmed down, but I’m grateful to be

busy and to wake to a routine every day.
