You might find yourself stressed out by the coronavirus pandemic. Stress and anxiety, unfortunately, are fairly normal in times like this. Your health and the health of your loved ones could be one concern. Many of us are also worried about our jobs and our financial situation. Now that many people have lost some financial support, stress and anxiety levels are on the rise.
What Stress & Anxiety Can Do To You
When you are under stress and anxiety over a long period of time, you may experience health issues you have not experienced before. You may have trouble sleeping. You may change your eating patterns. Some people will start smoking and drinking more than they used to. If you suffered from chronic pain, you might find that your conditioning is worsening. Stress and anxiety will also take a toll on your mental health.
What You Can Do To Reduce Stress & Anxiety
In order to stay well, there are a few things you can do to reduce stress and anxiety. Try to eat healthy, get a regular exercise routine going, stay socially connected and get enough rest. If you are working from home, try to take regular breaks and turn the computer off once you are finished. Taking a break from the daily news, now and then, may also make you feel better.
However, if you feel that your health problems are worsening and stress and anxiety are getting to you, make sure to seek help!
