How are you and your family doing during the coronavirus pandemic? We hope that everyone is safe, healthy and well. While you are focusing on protecting your physical health, it’s important to think about protecting your mental health and well-being, as well.
We are all experiencing a new reality right now. We are home-bound and can’t go out to our favorite restaurant or hang out with friends. We can’t attend concerts or sporting events. Our children have to stay at home and continue their classes online, and all their sports and activities have been suspended. Birthday parties and graduations have been cancelled. Even getting groceries has become a challenge (especially when it comes to toilet paper).
This can cause unsettling feelings that can lead to increased stress, fear and anxiety. How will we survive? What will we do next? What does the future hold?
Now let’s turn the tables and think about what we can do during this time to relieve stress and anxiety, as well as make the most of difficult times.
How to Curb Stress and Anxiety During The Coronavirus Pandemic
Listen to relaxing music or calming sounds like rain or ocean waves from a sound machine.
Take time to appreciate the down-time and use it to relax, rest, and spend quality time with your loved ones.
If you are suffering from adrenal fatigue, this can lead to increased feelings of anxiety. Do everything you can to support your adrenal glands, such as supplementing with bioidentical cortisol and taking vitamin C. If you have symptoms of hormone decline, replenish those hormones so that you can feel your best. Low thyroid function, low testosterone, and a decline and imbalance in progesterone and estrogen can also cause increased anxiety and depressed moods.
