It can be difficult to keep your anxiety at bay when the world around you seems to be going crazy over the virus that continues to spread. You hear the news and your friends talking about how plans are being cancelled and grocery lines are long. Then you watch the news that always seems to have some breaking headline. It’s best to avoid the news to keep your anxiety at bay, the constant breaking news is anxiety inducing in itself.
- Avoid hype contagion and stop watching the news so much as the news can trigger anxiety and panic.
- Talk to family and friends and surround yourself with positive, optimistic people to help ease your concerns.
- Take care of your body and your mind by washing your hands, avoiding touching your face and getting proper sleep.
“With constant breaking news about the latest outbreak, anxiety and fear can be just as contagious as the virus itself.”
