It’s normal to feel worried during times of stress, and many people struggle with anxiety in the best of times. Here are some steps you can take to manage anxiety and lower your stress.
Go to trusted sources. Check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website at cdc.gov and the World Health Organization (WHO) website at who.int to learn more. Having good information and knowing what you can do can help you feel more in control.
People often share false information that’s unhelpful and can feed your anxiety.
Stay on a regular schedule. Sticking with your normal routines can be reassuring. Go to bed and get up at your normal times. Eat meals at your usual times.
If you can, go for a walk or a bike ride. If you can’t get outside, find ways to be active indoors. For example, you might look for online exercise classes or put on some music and dance.
Take breaks from media. Limit the amount of time you spend on your phone or computer, reading news about the virus. Focusing too much on it can raise your anxiety level.
Maybe it’s stretching, meditation, or deep breathing. Or maybe it’s taking a warm bath, reading a good book, or doing a hobby you enjoy.
Sharing your feelings with friends and family may help you feel better. Your listening and support can be helpful to them too.
Many therapists can do counseling by phone or online. You could also look for an online support group.
