2 things that helped reduce my pandemic anxiety

#MentalHealthMonday⁠⁠How are you doing this week? Are you starting to adjust to the new strange "normal"?⁠⁠I feel like I'm finally surrendering to the situation, and had a little less anxiety last week. ⁠⁠Two changes I made:⁠⁠I let myself rest more. My body needed it, and I slept a lot. I gave myself grace, and put off a few things I needed to do that could wait. ⁠⁠I cut way back on the time I was spending consuming the news about the pandemic. When things were first coming to light, I was checking the news constantly throughout the day. That was not good for me! I'm now trying to check in just a couple of times a day... and avoiding reading anything about the pandemic when I'm about to go to bed. That was another bad idea. ⁠⁠I will keep sharing what's helping me during this time in case it helps you, too. ⁠⁠Now, tell me... what's been helping you? Please share in the comments so we can get ideas from each other. 🏽⁠⁠Please note: If you need extra support right now, my partner, @mentalhealthamerica has a Crisis Text Line with Crisis Counselors ready to help you cope. Text MHA to 741741. ⁠ ⁠⁠MHA also has a new website with lots of resources and information to help during the pandemic.

⁠⁠How are you doing this week? Are you starting to adjust to the new strange “normal”?⁠⁠

I feel like I’m finally surrendering to the situation, and had a little less anxiety last week. ⁠⁠

Two changes I made:

  • ⁠⁠I let myself rest more. My body needed it, and I slept a lot. I gave myself grace, and put off a few things I needed to do that could wait.
  • ⁠⁠I cut way back on the time I was spending consuming the news about the pandemic. When things were first coming to light, I was checking the news constantly throughout the day. That was not good for me! I’m now trying to check in just a couple of times a day… and avoiding reading anything about the pandemic when I’m about to go to bed. That was another bad idea.

⁠⁠I will keep sharing what’s helping me during this time in case it helps you, too.

MHA also has a new website with lots of resources and information to help during the pandemic here.

⁠⁠Take good care.
