My Coronavirus Anxiety Spiral
In the past weeks, we’ve experienced closings, testing delays, stock market declines, and toilet paper raids. Then you go online and fall into a loop of news and fact-checking. Overloading on information can be overwhelming. You’re stressed, but you are not alone. I know that you might be stuck indoors, but you can take steps to alleviate stress and stay safe. Here are a few ways:
- Talk to a mental health professional
- Limit information consumption
- Try new activities: reading, yoga, crafting
- Look at the bigger picture, not just the present situation.
Remember that your anxiety can impair your immune system.
