8 tips for coping with stress during the corona crisis
Have you been feeling rather anxious, fearful and stressed ever since the coronavirus pandemic has started to affect each and every aspect of our lives? Remember that some stress is normal, however, during this pandemic it feels like the amount of our worries is skyrocketing!
We are concerned about job stability, our health and that of our loved ones, we worry about our kids’ education, and to top it off, we don’t get to hang out with our friends and relatives… the list of stressors is seemingly endless!
What can you do?
As much as we’d love to, we, unfortunately, don’t have a magic wand to help you get your normal life back, but there are some proven ways to reduce stress and ward off your worries, and not only during this crisis!
Try them out and replace that ‘Handle with care!’ look on your face with a nice smile, even if it’s under a mask for now!
Know that being worried is okay. It is natural if your anxiety levels go up when faced with uncertainty and challenges that we don’t know how to deal with. We’re in this together.
Try to think of the certainty in your life. Even if it’s seemingly trivial, like your dog always being loyal to you, beautiful autumn foliage that you get to admire through your window, or crimson sunsets, it can bring back a sense of control.
1. Limit your media exposure
It is understandable that you need a general idea of what is happening and what measures are in place, but stick to credible, informative sources once or twice a day only. Funny pictures of cats are totally acceptable this time around!
2. Offer help
There are many ways you can help your elderly neighbour, work colleague, family member or random stranger. You will feel useful and valued.
3. Practice gratitude
Focus on what you love, all those people and things you are grateful for instead of wallowing in despair. Start a journal for an ever-better effect.
4. Connect with people
Calling a friend or family member (or why not reconnect with someone from your past!) can already do wonders, but you can also look up a therapist who can help you.
Use the time to re-evaluate your priorities. Learn to say ‘no’ to yet another responsibility on your plate and be reminded of how important it is to take good care of your body and mind. Don’t ignore quality sleep!
