Health Anxiety and the impact of Corona Virus.
This month we have all began an experience we have never known before.
There is understandable worry about our health and that of our families, about our jobs, our bills and our friends.
It is important during this time to stay connected to family and friends which can be done via phone, messages and video calls.
If you experience anxiety while you are staying home there are things that you can do to help.
- Learn some new mindfulness techniques
Apps or online materials can help you to relax.
Try to not watch the news if this increases your anxiety.
Try doing a puzzle, learn to draw, bake, write a letter or watch a new tv series.
If you feel overwhelmed ask for professional help. As a counsellor I can offer you sessions on the phone, via email or by video call. If you feel you need help with this technology I can try and help you with this too.
