To this day experts insist that we stay home to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.
Most people experience stress at some point because of this quarantine, and it’s normal, but high levels of worry can lead to a state of anxiety, and that can hurt your immunity and your mental health.
Anxiety feels like…
We all respond differently to the outbreak depending on our background, the things we do, and how we live.
Stress during an infectious disease outbreak can include:
- fear and worry about your health and the health of your loved ones,
- changes in sleep or eating patterns,
- difficulty concentrating,
- increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs,
- irrational anger or irritability,
- dizziness, headache, and panic.
Not all symptoms necessarily occur.
It’s OK to just breathe
You can do different activities until you find the one that makes you feel better, but it’s also okay to just breathe.
Here are some helpful and healthy ways to reduce stress and process anxiety during this pandemic:
- listen to music,
- practice yoga and meditation,
- breathe deeply with guided GIFs,
- validate your feelings,
- reduce news intake,
- social media distancing,
- make yourself a tea,
- be grateful,
- connect with others, or
- do nothing for some minutes.
No hurry. Take your time for whatever process you are in.
Although these are easy to follow tips, it is recommended to visit a specialist if anxiety and stress get out of control.
