If you are prone to anxiety, like me, you may have an active imagination. An imagination that can feed fears about what is going on in the world at this time. It’s really important to take extra care of yourself right now. I hope these tips for Corona virus anxiety can help. They have helped me.
Don’t feed the fear
If you are prone to anxiety, like me, you may have an active imagination. An imagination, that sends our minds to the worse possible scenario. Don’t feed the fear. For me, that means limiting visits to social media or taking breaks from it or watching the latest corona virus news.
Focus on helping others
One way to help ourselves feel better and distract ourselves from the anxiety is to help others. Your concerns may be valid, but how can you distract yourself from those thoughts. Maybe try reaching out to friends and family, offering to help neighbours or it might just mean helping a local business.
Come back to the present moment
Do what you can now to come back to the present moment. All we can really control is the here and now. Take deep breaths, take a walk in nature, cook a lovely meal. Remember, that right now, we are safe – water in the taps, air to breathe, a roof over your head.
I hope this helps. Sending you lots of love.
