It's no secret that the coronavirus pandemic has taken a toll on the mental health of many of us.

As the pandemic continues into a new year, however, mental health experts say there are proven strategies for coping that can improve the quality of life for everyone.

"Now is the time to really commit to radical self-care," said Allina Health licensed psychologist Cheryl Bemel. "That includes physical, mental and spiritual."

2. Control what you can control

Bernel suggests focusing on controlling the things you can control.

"That may be little projects, caring for loved ones, practicing gratitude or something else thats right for you," she said.

Bernel also says there's no shame in asking for help.

"If youre having a very difficult time coping in general or functioning in your day to day life, it may be time to seek professional help," she said.
