Are you struggling to adjust to your new normal? Has this year been challenging on your mental health? Do you struggle with anxiety about going back to work and reuniting with people you haven't seen in many months? Because the coronavirus is not yet eradicated from our society, many people may struggle with anxiety or fear in their everyday life. At our apartments in Ft Myers, FL, we are learning how to cope with the new changes and the new normal of our society right now. There is nothing more important than the health and safety of our tenants, so we want to be sure to provide them with a safe environment to live. We encourage our tenants to take these three steps so that you can stay sane during the pandemic.
During this time, it can be difficult to take a step back, take a deep breath, and be at peace with how you are truly feeling. With life's responsibilities, the political climate, and the constant media coverage, there is a lot of background noise. Take some time to turn everything off and sit with your emotions. Recognizing how you are feeling is the first step to understanding what you need to feel good again.
Despite the social distancing advisements, you still have ways to stay connected with others. Being isolated or withdrawn may make you develop more anxiety or stress about the pandemic. Instead, find ways to connect with friends and family. Talk on the phone or have video chats if you can't get out of your apartment. Spend time outdoors on a socially distanced walk through our beautiful apartment complex. Take time to enjoy the amenities safely. Visit your family's houses and sit on their porch to have a conversation. There are ways that you can stay connected with others despite all the changes to our social lives.
If you are truly struggling to cope with your stress or anxiety during the pandemic, you will want to ask for help. This can involve talking with a trusted loved one, finding a neighbor that you can rely on, and creating a pod of people that you can safely socialize with on a regular basis. Talking through your emotions will help you better understand their cause, which is the first time to finding the right way to cope. Be sure to ask for help when your anxiety is persisting and preventing you from living a full and happy life.
By taking these three steps, you can learn how to cope and adjust to the new normal that has been brought about by the pandemic. With the threat of coronavirus still out there, it is important to take care of yourself and your health while living at our apartments in Ft Myers, FL.
