Additional Tips & Resources


  • Keep a regular sleep schedule – for example, go to bed at the same time each night and wake up at the same time each day, sleep for at least 8 hours. Read more about sleep with the guidelines set forth by the National Sleep Foundation here.
  • Get some regular exercise – 30-minutes a day a few times each week. Search for basically any type of exercise routine on YouTube and you will be able to follow along!
  • Sit near the windows and get some sunlightor take a walk outdoors (more than 6-feet away from others) – Vitamin D is important to boosting mood – one of the most common sources we get it is from sunshine! Here is a recent study from an evidence based journal on vitamin D deficiency in females.


  • Drink alcoholic beverages – this can negatively impact mood and anxiety symptoms; and it can even worsen your sleep!
  • Neglect to refill your medications – take your prescribed medications regularly as directed by your healthcare provider. If you can’t get out to fill your medications, you can call your pharmacy and see if they have home delivery options. Many do! CVS is one of the popular pharmacies that offers this type of service.
  • Go without proper meals – the vitamins and other nutrients we eat help regulate our mood neurotransmitters. If you’re concerned about your children’s access to healthy meals, many school districts are now offering meals that can be brought home to feed kids. The USDA released this announcement recently to address Meal Waivers for children this Summer. There are even many food pantries across the country that are getting more donations and funding to help keep the supplies stocked at the food shelves – reach out to your local one should you experience challenges in obtaining food. You can find your local food pantry here.
