Mental health tips for coronavirus fears

  • Unplug from the news and social media; we are drawn to negativity but fight back.
  • Reach out by phone to the people who love you and share your fears.
  • Keep exercising and keep moving - get out there and do something, even if your normal routine is upset.
  • Stay mindful and be aware of what you are focusing on; don’t focus on the negativity or what you’ve lost, but focus instead on the positive or something neutral. Use gratitude.
  • If you meditate or pray, this is the time to do it. If not, why not try it in your free time? Remember you can control your mind.
  • Seek out online counseling if you need a professional counselor.
