    The outbreak of the new coronavirus has affected many areas of daily life, including mental health. With the sudden disruption of our routines and the new norm of social distancing, life as we knew it has dramatically transformed in a matter of weeks. Suddenly, many of us are facing the stress of the news—and its impact on our finances—alone, putting us at risk for depression during the coronavirus outbreak.

    This is the perfect storm for depression and anxiety, and with everything going on, people can find themselves ruminating, feeling hopeless and helpless, and, ultimately, depressed.

    Share your list here on how to protect our mental health and prevent depression during the coronavirus outbreak so that we can help the community what best applies to their needs.

    i know several people that moved to small villages/towns like my own in which basically daily life doesn't experience any impact at all... nothing has changed here.

    I am not even joking when I say this, even though I know it sounds funny, it is funny.

    From personal experience I have found that what worked for me, avoiding getting Covid depression was already being heavily depressed for most of my life. Covid's affect on me is nothing compared to the rest of my life. It has barely changed my way of thinking, of feeling. Well, it has established that the percentage of morons in the world is higher than what I assumed, but other than that nothing.

    I don't know if anyone else has similar experience, but I just thought to share it.
    I think it is funny.

    Intelligence is highly overrated. What we need more of is common sense. [Copied]
