Covid Anxiety: How to Cope
How to Deal With Coronavirus Anxiety
If you have anxiety about coronavirus, you’re not alone. Many people have been experiencing Covid anxiety, and understandably so. The virus is spreading, things are being canceled, schools and businesses are closing, and these are uncertain times.
There is so much in the news right now about how to protect your physical health against Coronavirus, but not so much advice for how to protect your mental health from Coronavirus anxiety. And… lots of people need that right now.
In the past week I’ve had so many therapy clients reaching out for online therapy for anxiety, (they wisely want to have their therapy from home right now!), specifically wanting to talk about how to manage anxiety about coronavirus. They’re worried about getting sick, or what will happen if they do get sick, and even their financial future. For some, it's all they can think about. And it's scary.
How to Manage Anxiety About Coronavirus
On this episode of the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast I’m sharing practical strategies for how to reduce “Corona anxiety” and replace it with activating, helpful ways of thinking so that you can stay in a good place mentally and emotionally during this challenging time. Specifically:
– How to shift out of anxiety and into a proactive stance, mentally.
– How to increase your emotional resilience.
– How to maintain supportive emotional connections in the age of “social distancing”
– And more.
I hope these strategies help you reduce your anxiety about Coronavirus, and resource you to stay strong and resilient.
Wishing you love, happiness, success and health,
