9 Ways to Manage Your Coronavirus Anxiety
Do not forget about your family and friends
If you choose to self isolate yourself or to stay in quarantine at home it does not mean that you can completely forget about everyone. You can talk to your friends and family often on the phone or video calls and medical experts recommend you do this because this way you will be less stressed. So, stay at home, but call your family and friends as many times as you can.
Nonetheless, if you think that there is something in your life that makes you feel stressed and anxious, then the best solution is to take a small break from those stressors.
“Some people are more resilient and better able to manage what’s happening, whereas others can catastrophize — if this is someone who you love and care about, you can express that they’re making it harder on themselves and, more importantly, on you,” explained Dr. Saltz.
