I was an only child living most of my young life in the country with no neighbor children to interact with so I learned from early on how to entertain myself and my own happiness. I was married and first widowed at 18 and then after another marriage and he left me I finally ended up of retirement age alone and now over 30 years alone I had learned how to be happy alone so the pandemic "stay at home" time was no big deal for me. No loneliness, no depression, no anxious times. Just peace and joy to be healthy and alive and loved even when the family couldn't come to visit. So my take on good mental health is to love yourself and learn to enjoy life alone.
