  1. Love these ideas so much! My pets definitely help me 🐢 and a face mask is a great way to have some time out. I also like to open a window in the evenings to get that fresh air and it’s nice if there’s a good sunset to watch as well ✨ Great post! πŸ’•

  3. I think another tip i would give is to not be afraid to say no to things sometimes to look after our wellbeing. Our mental health should be priority, and you dont need to say yes all the time if it will not help your mental health.

  4. Love these! Also, I think my favorite is take a day off. Most people are not using their PTO right now it feels likes, because they have nowhere to go. But having that day off is everything to your mental health πŸ™ŒπŸ»
