Coping with COVID-19 – Tip of the Week30 Sep 2020
Be aware but don’t panic!
Arm yourself with trusted information, as this will help you adjust your level of concern to appropriately fit the situation. Avoid up-to-the-minute news which can sometimes be made public before all the facts are known and avoid excessive Googling.
While it’s important to stay informed with reliable information, know that overwhelming yourself with difficult news and headlines can increase stress and anxiety, and lead to unnecessary worry.
Instead, enjoy hobbies that keep you busy, talk to a friend or family member or, if it’s getting too much, speak to a professional about your concerns or anxiety.
