The previous year has made transformed everything we know into the new normal. Ever since the pandemic, we were never short on lockdowns and quarantines all around the country. As a result, most of us were locked inside our homes, wishing for the crisis to end soon.
But the pandemic does not seem to have an end. Days have turned into weeks, weeks have turned into months. Months have turned into a year of being at home and finding new ways to strike out the boredom in us. Some have picked up new hobbies they saw online and tried them for the first time at home. Others have found different types of entertainment.
But there are days and nights where we lay down in bed and think of what will happen tomorrow and the day after. With all these intrusive thoughts, relaxing at home has become a task. What was supposed to be our safe sanctuary has been invaded by the stress of daily life.
But there is still hope in bringing that peace back at home. There are ways you can make your living space physically and mentally nurturing for you. Like physical fitness, your mind also needs sustained effort.
Below are the ways you can maintain your mental wellness at home:
Give time to the things you wanted to do before
Have you seen something on the internet that caught your attention? Maybe it’s time to go back to your bookmarked tab and try it out. Even if you do not become an expert, the process of learning how to do it is already beneficial to you. Along the way, you pick up new information even subconsciously. The more unfamiliar something is, the more novel knowledge and skills you get to learn. Eventually, your newly-discovered activity might become a new hobby that you can make money from. They may take some motivation and energy, but their fruits could also be genuinely rewarding and make you feel accomplished.

Know yourself even more
Sometimes we are too caught up in our jobs and playing a role in the family that we forget to know ourselves better. By giving more time for ourselves, we get to discover things we take a genuine interest in. By taking care of yourself and making personal improvements, you also learn how to take care of your loved ones better.
Take a moment to think about what you want to do and what you’re feeling at the moment. What are the things that you can and cannot accept in life? These things influence the decisions that you make every single day. Knowing what you want, you get to know where to focus and improve your mental, physical, and spiritual health.
