Let’s face it, we are living in a really horrifying time right now. Every time we turn on our television or even check our phone notifications, some news appears about the coronavirus. Everything is changing rapidly, only two weeks ago we were still able to go out and go to school.
With everything going on right now, it may be hard foe people to keep up and anxiety in others is spiking. It could be challenging to perform your usual therapeutic routines such as hiking right now, but here are some safe alternatives to help you cope with coronavirus anxiety.
The guided meditation app called Headspace is offering free meditations, sleep guides, and movement exercises to help people through stress and anxiety at this time.
Limit your intake of news. Its common to refresh the news every hour or so, but this could have a negative impact on your mental health.
Maintain a regular routine for sanity. This could mean having your meals at consistent times every day, having a regular sleep schedule, daily or weekly cleaning. This could help you give a sense of control in your life.
