Coping During Coronavirus
COPING DURING THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
The outbreak of infectious diseases such as Covid-19 (Coronavirus) can be a stressful time. It is not uncommon to feel anxious or worried while listening, reading or watching the news, even if you’re at little to no risk of getting ill yourself. It’s important during times like these to keep track of your own physical and mental health, as well as safely stay connected to your community. Know the signs of stress and when and how to seek help for yourself, as well as loved ones.
During this stressful time, don't forget your own self-care. Take time to breathe, exercise, get plenty of sleep, and take a break from the news and social media periodically.
