We are in trying times. Nobody knows what is happening and what is to come. Most of us are forced into arrangements so different from what we were used to. Some of us may have lost jobs or have switched to working from home. Normally, these kinds of situations can bring about anxiety and fears. As a provider of healthcare in Fayetteville, North Carolina, we help several clients deal with their anxiety brought on by the pandemic.
As part of our behavioral health services, here are some tips we recommend to our clients:
- Stay informed and check on the news, but remember that you can step away when you are feeling overwhelmed. Only check on trustworthy news sources and avoid spreading misinformation around.
- Spend your energy on things you can control such as reducing your risk of exposure.
- Stay connected with your friends and family despite being physically isolated. You can schedule regular zoom dates and try not to let every conversation focus on the pandemic.
- Take care of yourself both in body and spirit. Make sure you are eating healthy, getting enough sleep, exercising, and managing your stress.
