5 Tips on Reducing Stress Caused by COVID-19
During an outbreak, stress and anxiety are natural, but it is important to take care of your emotional health during this time.
- Stay “virtually” connected with others
Especially when isolated, stay in touch with friends and family through technology, and talk with them about your feelings.
- Take care of your body
Eat healthy meals, exercise regularly, and maintain your usual sleep routine.
- Make time to unwind
Take activities you enjoy, while still practicing social distancing.
- Stay informed with updated, credible sources, but take breaks from the news
Without breaks, the near-constant new reports can become overwhelming and upsetting.
- Call your healthcare provider
If stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row.
