During the Covid-19 pandemic, brain doctor Daniel Amen says “mental hygiene” is just as important as washing your hands.

As a psychiatrist and brain disorder specialist for more than 30 years, Amen says being on lockdown and dealing with the spread of coronavirus can lead to “unhealthy thinking patterns,” which could have detrimental long-term effects.
