Caring for you!

Right now, we’re all receiving an overwhelming amount of information regarding COVID-19. It is normal to feel anxiety in times of uncertainty. Taking care of yourself can help you cope with stress.

Try these steps to keep calm.

  • Take breaks from watching, reading or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch or meditate. Try to eat well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
