The California Surgeon General has a simple guide with things you can do every day, at home, to help support your mental and physical health, utilizing six key strategies:

  • Supportive relationships: Maintain supportive relationships wherever you can, including virtually.

  • Exercise: Engage in 60 minutes of physical activity every day, if you can. It doesn’t have to be all at one time.

  • Sleep: Get sufficient, high-quality sleep. This may be particularly hard right now, but going to sleep and waking up at the same time each day can help.

  • Nutrition: Ensure you are getting proper nutrition to help combat stress.

  • Mental health support: Resources available here.

  • Mindfulness: Practice mindfulness in whatever way works best for you. This could be things like meditation, yoga, or prayer for 20 minutes, two times a day.
