Ways To Cope With Mental Health Problems During Lockdown – Collab With Purely Kiki

Hey everyone it’s Zainab, welcome or welcome back to Zainab Chats! Today, I’m going to be sharing with you 5 ways to cope with your mental health problems during a lockdown! This post is also a collaboration with Okiki from Purely Kiki, she will be sharing ways to cope any problems too! Let’s jump into it!

Learn A New Skill
Learning a new skill will allow you to distract yourself from the bad feelings and replace them with the satisfaction of doing something new!

Call A Helpline
There are so many great helplines with counsellors who are willing to listen to you, especially during these difficult times where you may need it more then ever! Some great helplines are Childline and Mind UK

Stay Active
Staying active and fit will replace your bad vibes with your adrenaline pumping. You will be able to increase your fitness level and have fun; there are so many great Youtube workouts!

Try And Keep A Routine
Keeping a routine will mantain some normality, I’m not saying to have a perfect routine as it’s still a lockdown but have a rough plan of what you’ll do every day!

Group Video Calls
A group video call will allow you to still keep in contact with multiple friends and actually seeing their face! Talking to friends will really distract you from your sad feelings!



So guys, those are 5 things that can hopefully help you cope with your mental health in lockdown! Be sure to comment down below your advice and check out Okiki’s post!

    This is a pretty amazing list!!!

    I feel that one of things we lost in this pandemic was a routine since we r at home most of the time. Reclaiming that would give us a sense of purpose and motivation to do something with this time!

    I have been trying to create a routine and work on self-improvement before I go to college this fall. Itโ€™s working like 50/50 but I hope ๐Ÿคž I can pull it together…

    When I am depressed, I just binge watch Lifetime or HBO shows. It helps me forget the time for several hours, or even one day or two. I know it’s not the best solution, but it works to distract my mind from the frustrations.
