Building
Healthy
Habits

Times of stress and uncertainty can lead to poor choices.

Take time to take care of yourself.

The things we do to cope when feeling stressed or overwhelmed can become long-term habits. They can be good habits – or bad habits that will be hard to break later on.

Check in with yourself:

  • Am I eating more often?
  • What kinds of foods am I eating?
  • Am I drinking alcohol more?
  • Am I exercising? As often?
  • Am I spending quality time with my family?
  • Am I spending too much time online?
  • Am I vaping? More? Around others?

What habits can I develop?

  • Can I start exercising?
  • Can I start reading a book?
  • Can I start a family game night?
  • Can I learn new recipes?
  • Can I take a daily walk?
  • Can I check in on a friend by phone?
