During the Child Mind Institute’s #WeThriveInside campaign, a new video is released each day featuring homemade, inspiring videos from celebrities sharing their personal struggles during the COVID-19 crisis and what they are doing to cope.
Actress Storm Reid (Euphoria, The Invisible Man, A Wrinkle in Time) and actor Keith Powers (What/If, The New Edition Story) share their advice on how they take care of their mental health during the pandemic.
Reid says, “I’ve been taking time for myself and realizing that not every day is going to be easy, but trying to stay positive through it all. I’m sending you love and light. Just know that we are all alone together.”
Powers emphasizes, “During this time, to take care of my mental I am, one, meditation. Two, journaling, and three, reading. Always communicate with your loved ones if you can. Social distancing doesn’t mean emotional distancing.”
