Caring for Your Mental Health During the COVID-19 Pandemic

If you know that your mental health has suffered because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you’re not alone. Many people have struggled with anxiety and depression throughout the pandemic. Thankfully, you can seek professional help, even if you’re staying home.

Whether you’re interested in a mindful coaching program with Bee Umana through her wellness brand, Mother of the Mind, or connect with a therapist, start with the resources we’ve gathered.

Therapy Options

Even if you can’t attend therapy sessions in person, you do have options available during the pandemic.

  • You can go through a phone consultation with a therapist to see if you click with their approach to therapy.
  • You don’t have to visit a therapist in their office. Instead, you can opt for virtual sessions.
  • If you know that therapy isn’t the right fit for you at the moment, a mindfulness coaching program could be a good way to invest in your holistic health.

Paying for Therapy

Paying for therapy can be confusing. Here’s how to cover the costs, whether you have insurance or not.

  • Unsure if your current health insurance plan actually covers therapy? This guide will help you find out.
  • Yes, you can find affordable therapy even without health insurance. This resource is packed with suggestions!
  • Talk to your therapist about determining your price for sessions based on a sliding scale.

Lifestyle Tips

In addition to getting professional support, you can also focus on healthy lifestyle habits for your emotional wellbeing.

  • Try committing to a daily meditation practice. This can help relieve stress and bring you a sense of balance.
  • Purchasing a headset is a must if you plan to listen to guided meditations or log in for virtual therapy sessions as you need to tune out distractions.
  • Looking for a form of exercise that benefits your body and mind? Try yoga at home!
  • Finally, find ways to spend a little time in nature each day. It’s safe, and it’s great for your mental health.

This pandemic has been hard on everyone’s mental health. Going through such a challenging time, especially in isolation, can exacerbate depression and anxiety. But by reaching out to get help and changing your lifestyle, you can create a brighter future and cultivate inner peace.
