How to Cope with Uncertainty
For many people, COVID-19 has sparked intense feelings of uncertainty and lack of control. While this response is understandable, it is important we work to keep stress and anxiety at a manageable level. Here are a few things you can do to cope:
- Take care of you body by eating well-balanced meals, sleeping, getting appropriate exercise, and avoiding exposure to unhealthy substances.
- Limit your time consuming media or reading news stories. While an appropriate dose of information is helpful, spending too much time thinking about the pandemic can cause undue anxiety.
- Connect with people you love via a phone call, Skype, FaceTime, or even email!
- Try something new – perhaps a new recipe, an art project, or a new exercise routine!
- Consider telehealth or online counseling. If you need someone to help you process your emotions during this time, an online counselor can be a calming and encouraging resource.
