First and foremost, it is advisable to take your time and be kind to yourself during your recovery period. Recovery takes time and it is important to allow yourself to rest and recover. This can be difficult if the symptoms are ongoing. If you are having trouble managing your mood, here are some things that can help you feel more in control of your mental and emotional well-being.
Simple lifestyle factors can have a big effect on mood. If you are going through a long cove, limit your alcohol intake, choose a balanced diet, get enough sleep and get some exercise (depending on your physical strength).
Reaching out to family and friends through phone calls, video calls, or text messaging can help improve your mood. If you do not find the strength to resume your routine, take small steps. Try small, achievable activities that will give you a sense of joy and accomplishment.
